The buzz around Freida Pinto just gets buzzier every day.

The latest news is that the Slumdog starlet could be the next Bond girl.

According to reports in a British newspaper, she has been invited to screen tests to cast the iconic role for the sequel to Quantum of Solace.

Apparently exec producer Barbara Broccoli is "eager" for both her and Oscar-winning Slumdog director Danny Boyle to sign up for the next 007 project.

“Freida came to the attention of the Bond team when they were casting Quantum of Solace," the Sun quotes their source as saying.

“She was too young at the time to have a part as a love interest for a secret agent.

“But she has blossomed into an incredibly stunning young woman and would look perfect on Daniel Craig’s arm."
