Heather Mills nearly in Bionic Commando

But it would have cost an arm and a leg.

Heather Mills was approached by Capcom to star in Bionic Commando, according to The Sun.

Capcom is said to have approached the artist formerly known as Mrs Sir Paul McCartney because she has a prosthetic leg. The hero of Bionic Commando, as fans will know, has a prosthetic arm.

But the ex-Beatles-ex is said to have insisted the game should revolve around a character based on her, and asked for a six-figure sum. Capcom refused to meet her demands and the deal fell through.

"She was insistent she wouldn’t do it for a smaller fee and said the producers should make her the star," said The Sun's source.

"The request was way, way over budget and they certainly weren’t keen on basing the game on her."

Capcom has yet to comment on the matter.
