As we are doing quite a bit of 007-related stuff here at Cinematical this week (and because of my eternal love for Bond girls) I thought I would drop some news on you concerning the latest Bond girl -- the super-hot Eva Green. According to the great team over at Production Weekly, Green is set to star in director Alejandro Chomski's upcoming film In the Country of Last Things. The film, which will be Green's next role following her work in director Chris Weitz's His Dark Materials: The Golden Compass opposite Nicole Kidman and her Casino Royale co-star Daniel Craig, is being adapted by the director from the novel by Paul Auster.

In the film, Green will play Anne Blum who is on a quest to find her brother amidst a post-apocalyptic world of crime, starvation, urban decay and deprivation. During this quest, she ends up finding more than she bargained for when she makes some unexpected friends and even ends up finding true love among the ruins of civilization. Green has seen quite a career upswing since appearing in her first film in 2003 -- Bernardo Bertolucci'sThe Dreamers. From there, she went on to star as the object of Orlando Bloom's affection in Ridley Scott's excellent and underrated film Kingdom of Heaven.

Then, she landed the coveted role as Bond girl Vesper Lynd in the latest Bond film Casino Royale -- which has led her to even more roles in spite of the so-called "Bond girl curse" which causes a career stall to an actress who appears in a Bond film. All in all, pretty good for only being at it three years and having to overcome a so-called "curse." With all she has going for her, I wonder what the beautiful and talented Green will do next? Whatever it is, you can bet I'll be watching -- especially if she keeps wearing outfits like the one in the picture up there. Nice.

There's no word on other casting for In the Country of Last Things. The film is currently in pre-production and scheduled to start shooting in Argentina this winter.
