(BANG) - Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are set to be the first Bond girl twins.

The two sisters are in talks to appear in the next 007 adventure, tentatively titled 'Bond 22', starring Daniel Craig as the suave British spy.

In a bid to secure the 20-year-old sibling stars, producers are offering Mary-Kate and Ashley a clause in their contracts stating they will not have to strip off or shoot any sex scenes, according to online gossip columnist Janet Charlton.

If the twosome accept the offer they will reportedly play characters who help Bond with his mission.

Other beauties rumoured to be starring in the hotly anticipated film include Dutch actress Carice van Houten and Australian star Abbie Cornish, who recently appeared with Russell Crowe in 'A Good Year'.

'ER' actor Goran Visnjic is mooted to be playing a villain, while Dame Judi Dench and Giancarlo Giannini will reprise their roles as M and Rene Mathis respectively.

Shooting on the movie is due to start in 2008.
