Pop singer Jessica Simpson is being lined up to star in the next James Bond movie - as one of 007's lovers.

The reality TV star of NEWLYWEDS: JESSICA AND NICK, 23-year-old Simpson has been approached by movie bosses to appear as the love interest in PIERCE BROSNAN's last outing as 007.

A source says, "Jessica is being mentioned as a possible Bond girl.

"They really want Catherine Zeta-Jones but it doesn't look like she's going to be available."

And Britney Spears is also on the producers' wish-list, although they realise casting the TOXIC singer is unlikely.

The insider adds, "Britney's just too well known for other things even though she has the kind of popularity with kids the producers are looking for."
