(FROM HOLLYWOOD REPORTER) ? British newcomer Gemma Arterton and Ukrainian actress Olga Kurylenko have been cast as the two female leads in the next installment of the James Bond franchise. Arterton will play Agent Fields in the Marc Forster-directed movie, which is still known only as ”Bond 22” and is currently filming in London for Columbia and MGM for a Nov. 7 release. Kurylenko will play Bond’s love interest. Daniel Craig will reprise his role as Agent 007. Arterton, 21, is a graduate of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts. Her past movies include a remake of the comedy St. Trinian’s, recently released in the U.K., and Guy Ritchie’s RocknRolla, which is scheduled for release in October. Kurylenko recently co-starred in Hitman and with Elijah Wood in a segment for Paris, Je T’Aime. They join a cast that includes Judi Dench, Giancarlo Giannini, Mathieu Amalric, Jeffrey Wright, and Jesper Christensen. Plot details are being kept under wraps, but the new movie is said to pick up where Casino Royale left off. (Hollywood Reporter)
