James Bond has no immediate plans to go toe-to-toe with John Travolta. But it may yet happen in the future, if Travolta has his way.

There's a really interesting, extensive interview with John Travolta that's gone up over at the Telegraph, that's very much worth a read. In it, he touches on his film career, death, religion and what he's up to. And right at the end, he revealed that he's not looking to "close the chapter on playing villains" until he gets the nod to be an antagonist in a James Bond film.

"I would love that", he said. He'd love it so much that he's actually done something about it too. "They're going a different way with their villain in this next film", he revealed, "but I've spoken to [producer] Barbara Broccoli about it and she loves the idea, so that would be great".

Of course, that's some distance away from this being anywhere near concrete, but we thought you might want to know anyway. The full interview is here. It'll be interesting to find out too what "going a different way with their villain" turns out to mean...
