Watts wanted by Bond bosses
13:30 29 December 2005
James Bond bosses are lining up Naomi Watts to be a Bond girl - after being thrilled by her performance in 'King Kong'.
The producers of new 007 film 'Casino Royale' were so impressed by the screen beauty's portrayal of Anne Darrow in the blockbuster they now want her to star opposite Daniel Craig - the latest actor to don the famous tux.
Eon Productions, the team behind the movie, have already contacted Watts to offer her the role of Russian vixen Vesper Lynd and want her to perform a screen test for the part in the New Year.
However, friends of the stunning 37-year-old star believe she may turn down the part because of fears she could be typecast.
If she does pass on the role, Watts will be the latest actress to snub Bond bosses.
Charlize Theron, Angelina Jolie and Scarlett Johansson have all so far rejected offers to appear in the new movie - leaving the production team with less than a month to find a top female star for the movie.
