While we reported last week that actresses Freida Pinto and Olivia Wilde denied involvement in the latest James Bond film, it seems another actress could be playing the villain of the film. CinemaBlend is reporting that Rachel Weisz could be starring as the villain in James Bond 23. Here's an excerpt from the site's article.

In fact, they're considering Weisz to play the head of Quantum, the secret organization responsible for all the bad guy activity in the last two films. More than just another Bond babe, she'd be the mastermind pulling the strings behind everything that's happened in Daniel Craig's Bond movies so far, and the architect of James Bond's suffering.
