Rumorville: Al Pacino To Star In Quantum Of Solace

AICN received a tip today claiming that Al Pacino has already been cast as one of the villains in the next James Bond opus, Quantum of Solace. Now this info is not confirmed and is strictly rumor, but if true, Pacino certainly gives the new school Bond an old school kick. Here's what the tipster says...

"But the big news that he leaked was that Al Pacino would be taking part in filming. I was a little shocked as the cast has been revealed aready, but he said Pacino would play the head of the terrorist group introduced in CASINO ROYALE and QUANTUM OF SOLACE. Al is said to come to Pinewood in April-May to film what is said to be a brief cameo." 

The tipster says the info comes from a friend who's working on Bond 22's sets. I have an opinion on this casting, but I'll wait to see how the info develops first. What's your take?
