The highly coveted role of a Bond girl and the villain has yet to be announced.
Recent speculations suggest that “Django Unchained” star Christoph Waltz is the newest addition to the team.
Whether or not he will be the new villain in the film has yet to be revealed as well.
According to Daily Mail UK , the award winning actor will play a “significant” in the upcoming film.
“It’s not immediately evident whether the part’s friend, or foe, or a bit of both,” an alleged source close to the film revealed to the publication.
A person reportedly close to production claimed that Waltz had signed up for an “extremely cunning.” “A nemesis of sorts,” role.
But, when asked if he would be the bad guy in “James Bond 24” film, the source said: “Not so fast .
just because he has played bad guys in other movies doesn’t mean he’s going to be the baddie here,” the source immediately dismissed the idea.
Meanwhile, a video footage below claims that the upcoming “Bond” film will cast “Guardians of the Galaxy” star Dave Batista as the new bad guy and “Blue is the Warmest Color” actress Lea Seydoux as the new Bond girl.
And while the script is still in the works, James Bond Radio reported that the casting crew is looking for an iconic henchman in the likes of Oddjob and Jaws, could this be the role that Batista has reportedly bagged? MI6 confirmed the reports claiming that the casting has already begun and that the team is actively in the hunt for “someone extremely physically fit and over 6′ 2″.” The assassin will supposedly have “several altercations with Daniel Craig’s 007 throughout the film.” “Former sports athletes will be under consideration along with anyone ‘very unusual’,” the report added.
“Game of Thrones” star, Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, famously known to play the deadly villain “The Mountain” and has been recently nominated in the Oscars is now also being rumored to perfectly fit for the role according to Enstarz .
He has the wrestler-like physique and definitely the attitude to become the new “James Bond 24” iconic henchman and with all the attention that he was able to get from playing “The Mountain” in HBO’s hit series “Game of Thrones” casting him will most likely be a hit.
It’s no secret that one of the most sought after character in a movie is becoming a James Bond bad guy.
The movie franchise is known to have produced award-winning actors following the villain role in the film.
Thus, this will be a perfect opportunity for Björnsson to step up and try his career in the big screen.
James Bond 24 movie is slated for release on November 26, 2015.
