Older than Bond23.net herself, this rumor has legs… if not foundation.
According to the Toronto Sun Pinto, famed for Slumdog Millionaire, is keeping her options open and is ‘coy’ about any role in Bond 23:
“As Bond?” she responds, smiling. “I don’t know — I haven’t read anything, I haven’t seen anything yet, so I’m not sure about that. I’m not predicting anything. I cannot see the future.”
“If the character’s interesting and not just a cardboard cut-out — because I have a problem doing that. But I’d like to be Bond.”
