Rachel Weisz

The 23rd James Bond film will be made this year and whilst it has been confirmed that Daniel Craig will reprise his role as 007, there has been no hint as to which lucky girl will get to play opposite him as the Bond girl and Sky Bet make Craig’s real-life love interest Rachel Weisz 8/1 to bag the coveted role.

The Oscar winning actress is thought to have found love with Craig after splitting from director Darren Aronofsky in November.

Bond will return on November 9, 2012, with filming set to start later this year. Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto, who was linked with the lead female role last year, is 3/1 favourite, while Olga Kurylenko is 4/1 to make a second appearance as Camille.

Sam Mendes will direct the film and his ex-wife Kate Winslet is 20/1 to star opposite Craig.

Sky Bet’s Helen Jacob said: “Gorgeous Rachel Weisz will be the envy of women everywhere if she gets to be Bond’s girl both on and off screen!”

Lady GaGa is an early 2/1 favourite to record the theme song to the twenty third movie in the Bond ftanchise.

Muse would be a popular choice at 6/1, while Amy Winehouse, who was linked with the film last year, is an 8/1 shot. Other frontrunners include Michael Buble (6/1)and Katy Perry (7/1).
