The Spanish actress’ name is included in the latest James Bond film update.

The star of Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Volver, Penelope Cruz, could be in line for a prominent role in the 24th Bond film, due 2015, according to a schedule update issued by Sony Picture.

Named alongside Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes and Naomie Harris, Cruz was the surprise fourth headline star named as part of Sony’s release calendar update, as spotted by French magazine Premiere.

With her husband Javier Bardem having taken part in Skyfall, there’s already a family connection to the Bond franchise. Cruz also demonstrated that mainstream blockbuster success wasn’t off her list, co-starring with Johnny Depp in Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides in 2011; earlier, she had appeared alongside Ralph Fiennes in 2006 drama Chromophobia. — AFP Relaxnews
