The paper said Richards, who played Dr. Christmas Jones in the 1999 James Bond movie "The World Is Not Enough," would either have a series developed for her or be cast in one of UPN's 2005-06 pilots.
Richards is married to Charlie Sheen, the star of the CBS comedy, "Two and a Half Men." She guest-starred on the series last season, helping it achieve one of its best ratings of 2003-04, the paper said.
Richards will appear with Dean Cain in the upcoming Lifetime TV movie, "I Do, But I Don't" -- described as the story a divorced wedding-planner who falls for the groom in one of her projects.
