Daniel Radcliffe as Young James Bond?

One good franchise deserves another.

We've got Young Joc and Young Jeezy on the pop charts. How about a young James Bond on the silver screen?

According to a rumor posted at JoBlo, that's what the Bond camp might have on tap -- and Daniel Radcliffe, who was supposedly up for the role a few years ago, is still under consideration. What's more, he appears to be interested.

The new films, according to the article, will be based on Charlie Higson's Young Bond books, a series that started with 2005's SilverFin and whose fourth installment, Hurricane Gold, was released this month. The stories, which take place in the 1930s, revolve around Bond's death-defying adventures at Eton College.

The filmmakers would need to make some changes if Radcliffe signed on -- for instance, Bond is only 13 when the first book begins -- but where there's a will, there's a way. And it's all just an unsubstantiated rumor, of course, but it makes a certain amount of sense -- particularly for Radcliffe, who is likely already itching to avoid being typecast as Harry Potter.
