Bond 25 Casting Call
17th July 2018
Descriptions of the leading roles are revealed as the casting net is thrown open for Bond 25
By MI6 Staff
With pre-production on Bond 25 ramping up, the casting net has been thrown open for leading roles in the upcoming film. Several details on the casting notice confirm what we already know: the film will be directed by Danny Boyle and shooting begins in December 2018 and will run for 5-6 months.
When a similar casting call was made for SPECTRE, it accurately revealed the character for 'Hinx' which would ultimately be played by Dave Bautista.
Although this time there are no character names in the role descriptions, it appears that Bond 25 will feature a Russian male villain, a Russian female (likely be the villain's partner and a 'Bond Girl' part), and a Māori henchman. This also indicates that the new script by John Hodge is in good shape.
