Is Margot Robbie the next Bond girl?
Australian stunner Margot Robbie currently holds the title of bookies’ favourite to be the next ‘Bond girl’.
While the Legend of Tarzan actress keeps busy with promotion for DC’s upcoming Suicide Squad, betting shop Paddy Power has Robbie as the 12/1 favourite to join the next instalment of the 007 movie franchise. Meanwhile, Sicario action woman Emily Blunt isn’t far behind in the stakes at 16/1, and Gone Girl / ‘Blurred Lines’ model Emily Ratajkowski holds third place with odds of 22/1. Harry Potter star Emma Watson is currently listed as the outside favourite at 40/1.
The leading role of James Bond is of course still in question, with existing 007 Daniel Craig looking unlikely to return for the 25th Bond feature film. Tom Hiddleston appears to have blown his high chances at taking over the iconic character, meaning other hot tips Idris Elba, Aidan Turner, James Norton and Damian Lewis could be moving up in the ranks.
Stay tuned for further developments as we learn of them!
Bond 25 is due for release in 2018.
Margot Robbie can next be seen in Suicide Squad, which hits UK cinemas next Friday August 5th.
