Supermodel Gisele Bundchen (“Taxi,” “The Devil Wears Prada”) is apparently being considered for the female lead in the new “Austin Powers” film says Boston.Com.
The site says the 27-year-old Brazilian beauty already has been given the script, and her agent will meet soon with star Mike Myers and director Jay Roach.
Portuguese – not English – is Bundchen’s native tongue. Combined with her already hectic schedule modeling, it’s a wonder if she’ll have the time to shoot the project.
Elizabeth Hurley, Heather Graham, and Beyoncé Knowles played the female leads in the previous three films of the ‘Powers’ franchise at the now folded New Line Cinema.
