LOS ANGELES, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- Britney Spears
may be the next Bond girl, a role she discussed with James Bond
filmmakers while in London recently.
Zap2it.com says Spears met with Barbara Broccoli, who is producing the next "007" installment, while on her latest U.K. trip.
If the pop singer indeed joins the cast, she will follow in the footsteps of actresses Kim Basinger, Denise Richards and Halle Berry - all of who appeared in 2002's "Die Another Day."
Production is expected begin next January, with a release date around Thanksgiving 2005. Pierce Brosnan will reprise his role in the yet-untitled film.
Spears starred in 2002's "Crossroads" and appeared in a cameo as herself in "Austin Powers in Goldmember" that same year. She received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in November.
