Little-known actor Gerard Butler has confirmed he has been asked to be the next James Bond.

Barbara Broccoli wants him to take over when Pierce Brosnan gives up the role, according to the Daily Record.

The Scottish actor is currently starring in Wes Craven's Dracula 2001.

He said: "It's very flattering and I can't say much more than that.

"I was getting phone calls from Los Angeles saying that it had been announced on CNN that I had been named the new Bond. Since then I've had calls from Israel and South Africa."
