BOND 23 girls cast, and they're from HOUSE and SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE

That's right. MGM may be in trouble, but Bond 23 is still on the move with Sam Mendes (American Beauty) attached to direct. The Daily Mirror now confirms that Freida Pinto, who you may remember as Latika in Slumdog Millionaire, has landed a lead role in the film. Olivia Wilde, best known for her role on Fox's House M.D., is set to play a more villainous role in the film. More on Mendes, Pinto, and Bond after the jump.

An anonymous source told the Daily Mirror that Freida is their dream girl:

"Sam has been talking about Bond for months now and is so excited about it...The project has been in the pipeline for months and Freida was always the dream Bond girl, but initially she was nervous about accepting it. This is going to be the most ambitious 007 yet. Sam plans to reinvent the genre."

Wilde and Pinto are different choices from the usual Bond girls. Now all we need is a decent script. In my mind, Bond films live and die by the quality of their story. The rest of the puzzle is easy to piece together because, well, they've done it 22 times. Hopefully Daniel Craig will be less Bourne and more Bond in the upcoming film.
