In addition to the series principal cast a group of talented new performers has also been added to the film who include Ana de Armas, Dali Benssalah, Lashana Lynch and Billy Magnussen, and whose roles are currently unspecified.
Bond 25’s biggest reveal though was the confirmation that recent Academy Award winner Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody) will serve as the primary antagonist to Bond in the new film. While nothing was revealed about his role, Malek said that he’s going to give Craig “a run for his money”, and given his talent and range of acting expression he’ll certainly create something very memorable here.
Talented filmmaker Cary Joji Fukunaga (True Detective, Jane Eyre) is at the helm this time for Bond 25 and it’s going to be one epic production with filming locations including Norway, Jamaica, Italy, London as well as a significant amount of filming taking place in Bond’s famed home of Pinewood Studios.
Ever since 2006’s Casino Royale Daniel Craig has brought a sense of intensity, toughness and deep character to the role of James Bond and in the 13 years that he’s been portraying the character he’s cemented himself as one of the all-time action greats. Now with Bond 25 we’ll get to see him in one final triumphant performance when Bond 25 arrives in cinemas next year on April 9, 2020.
