The Next James Bond Is Jennifer Lawrence? Actress Front-Runner To Play Blonde Bond

Jennifer_Lawrence_SDCC_2015Jennifer Lawrence is the top pick to play a “blonde” and female version of James Bond. The actress is being eyed in the lead role for “The Last Goodnight,” which is based on a WWII secret agent named Betty Pack.

Per Page Six, the story is written by Howard Blum as non-fiction bio of the agent. The book has yet to be released this week, but Columbia Tri-star already have the rights to do movie.

“The Last Goodnight” describes Pack as a kind of femme fatale with a daring attitude akin to James Bond. If Jennifer Lawrence agrees to star in the film, it will be a great mark for her already impressive resume. Lawrence is already an Academy Award winner.

No word yet on when the film will begin production.

Meanwhile, the actress will be part of this summer’s anticipate “X-men” release with “X-men: Apocalypse,” the third installment in the rebooted franchise. Jennifer Lawrence will reprise her role as Mystique and the movie also stars Oscar Issac, Olivia Munn, Sophie Turner along with leads Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy. “X-men: Apocalypse” will hit theaters May 18.
