Zendaya and Sydney Sweeney are few of the names being considered for playing Bonds girls in upcoming James Bond movie.

A source spilled to DailyMail.com, the Bond franchise's executive producer Barbara Broccoli wanted to incorporate a young starlet to take on the iconic "femme fatale role".

"When it comes to Bond girls, they will never leave the franchise, and to have a young Bond is something that will be fun to play with," noted an insider.

The source further said, "Sydney Sweeney has been discussed, but something like that is only determined by schedule, if the casting is right and the director thought it would be right."

"If they get Denis Villeneuve, who has worked with Zendaya, then she could be in the mix as well," remarked an insider.

The source also told the outlet that Barbara wished to hire Oscar-nominated Dune director Denis Villeneuve to direct the new movie. which could potentially be a remake.

"Barbara Broccoli is very eager for Denis to direct the next Bond," mentioned an insider.

The source continued, "That is her dream scenario, but since he is very busy, it might be difficult to lock him down."

"If he doesn't do the next one, they will keep asking him to direct future instalments," stated an insider.

The source claimed, "Barbara wants the fantasy of Bond to return, where the action is there but the larger-than-life bad guys are in the mix."

"How to take Bond in the future has been a talking point for years and they want to differentiate the new films from those starring Daniel Craig, which felt more real," shared an insider.

The source added, "Villains like Jaws or Oddjob are something she would like to see again if they remake an older Bond film."

Meanwhile, Aaron Taylor Johnson hasn't officially accepted the role but it's believed that once he has signed the contract he will become the seventh actor to play the iconic British secret service agent since the franchise launched in 1962.
