Charlize Theron has reportedly replaced Angelina Jolie as director Martin Campbell's first choice for the latest Bond girl role.

The Monster star has bewitched Campbell and executives at Sony, according to website Scotsman.com, and now she's the favorite to follow in the footsteps of Bond babes like Honor Blackman, Jane Seymour and Teri Hatcher.

If selected, the South African beauty would become the second actress to star in a Bond film following an Oscar win—Halle Berry appeared in Die Another Day after picking up a golden statue for her role in Monster's Ball.

Jolie has reportedly been offered the role of Vespa Lynd in the new 007 adventure, Casino Royale, but suggested the character should be "toughened up."
