Imagine that it's dark, kind of spooky and all sorts of foreboding. Suddenly, out of the shadows comes a figure -- one with bright, sea-colored eyes. It's a sexy, chocolate-haired woman. She goes to give you a kiss, one peck on the lips. Within an instant, you've fallen to the ground, dying because her lips are poison -- the poison of midnight. Okay, this might not be the premise, but Eva Green, the sexy Vesper Lynd from Casino Royale and the saucy Isabelle from The Dreamers, is going to star in a little something called Midnight Poison, to be directed by My Blueberry Nights helmer Wong Kar Wai.

Sounds cool, right? A movie starring Green with the saturated colors of Kar Wai? Well, not quite. The project is actually a commercial. Green has become the latest face added to the ranks of Christian Dior, following other notable actresses like Charlize Theron and Sharon Stone. She's the official face for their new perfume, Midnight Poison, which should be released this September. I guess if any notable director could make a really good, intriguing and appealing commercial for cosmetics, it would be Wong Kar Wai. He's got the visuals down-pat, and I can only imagine what he'll do with Green's eyes. Between this and her stint as Serafina Pekkala in His Dark Materials: The Golden Compass, I think we'll be seeing a lot of the latest Bond girl. She's also got a rumored role in Mr. Nobody, with Jared Leto and Sarah Polley, as well as a starring role in Franklyn with Ewan McGregor, Paul Bettany and John Hurt.
