Rachel Weisz - Weisz To Star Opposite Alleged Lover Craig In Bond?

Actress RACHEL WEISZ is reportedly in talks with director SAM MENDES to star in the new JAMES BOND movie, opposite her rumoured new love interest DANIEL CRAIG.
Filming on the 23rd 007 film is set to commence later this year (11) and hit cinemas on 9 November, 2012.
Craig will reprise his role as the superspy for the Mendes-directed action movie - and Weisz, who was spotted strolling hand-in-hand with the actor over Christmas (10), is in negotiations to star opposite her alleged new lover, according to Britain's Grazia magazine.
A source tells the publication, "Rachel has been speaking with Sam for some time now about appearing in the new Bond film, long before she and Daniel hit it off."
The publication also reports Weisz is planning to leave her home in New York and move back to her native U.K. with her son, Henry, by former partner Darren Aronofsky. The Hollywood couple ended its eight-year relationship in 2010, announcing news of the split in November (10) after several months of separation.
The insider adds, "Whatever happens, she intends to move back to London this year. She loves her life in New York but she desperately misses England, and is keen to reconnect with her roots there. But most importantly she wants to be there to support Daniel.
"Rachel and Daniel have become very close and are serious about one another. It seems that being photographed holding hands was their way of showing the world that."
