Madonna contacted for a new film
Madonna could be set to star as the villain in a new female Bond movie. Now I’ve been hearing a lot about this writer/producer from London, Ben Trebilcook. He’s written a treatment for “Die Hard 4” and he’s also the man behind the long-in-the-works spy film “Semper Occultus”.
Yesterday, we mentioned a rumour that Madonna might be in talks to star in the latter film. Today the man himself checked in to confirm there are talks to that affect. “To clarify yesterday’s bite: Yes, I have sought Madonna and her company Maverick for assistance and yes, I did pen a role for her. It’s a villainous role. One of two. The other baddie was written for Mr. Jason Statham, whose team I’m in close contact with. There are some very exciting prospects for this project and although slowly, it is heading towards a satisfying destination. I have already penned a treatment for a second adventure for Kelly Brook’s character, Daisy Norton-Hall, which will probably be released in book form.”
For the uninitiated, Semper Occultus was first announced as a possible vehicle for popstress Geri Halliwell, and later Sean Connery.
Trebilcook’s “Die Hard 4” script is currently at WMA. He’s suggested both Kelly Brook and Sarah Chalke [Scrubs] for the part of Lucy McClane. Brook’s a favourite of Trebilcook’s apparently, he also suggested her for “Mission: Impossible 3”, when he was involved once upon a time.
