The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed the rumor that British newcomer Gemma Arterton has been cast as the new Bond girl in Bond 22, currently filming in London for Columbia Pictures and MGM.
Arterton will play "Fields" in the Marc Forster-directed movie, which again stars Daniel Craig as Agent 007.
On Friday, Eon Prods. in London and Santa Monica-based Danjaq Prods., as well as Arterton's agent, ICM in London, confirmed the casting. Details of her character were not available, but a Danjaq rep said "it's a nice-sized role."
