'James Bond 24' Movie: Lea Seydoux, Dave Bautista To Star Alongside Daniel Craig, Features Car Chase In Rome [VIDEO]
With a year until the next Bond movie and production soon to get started, some casting is still trickling down with confirmation on the way. But what else does the next James Bond entry have in store for 007?
As of now, two new faces are joining the cast with Grand Budapest Hotel and Blue is the Warmest Color star Lea Seydoux coming on as a femme fatale character and possible Bond girl and Guardians of the Galaxy standout Dave Bautista joining as the henchman Hinx. Both roles should give trouble to Bond as Hinx is expected to be in a few fights with Daniel Craig.
The plot is being kept under wraps, but director Sam Mendes and Craig have teased that it will be more international than the last movie, Skyfall. So far the locations that have been mentioned are Austria and Morocco with the most recent revelation being a car chase that will go throughout the streets of Rome, Italy.
With casting still ongoing, one name that is possibly ruled out is Penelope Cruz who may have to say no to Bond to work on the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie, which is filming early next year, with her husband Javier Bardem. One name that has surfaced though is Mark Strong, who was seen in Austria with Craig, and is rumored to take on the villain role.
Other big names circling the movie is Grammy-winning artist Rihanna who could appear both as a Bond girl and as the singer for the film's theme song. The singer said that she was a big fan of the franchise.
The film is expected to come out on Nov. 6, 2015.
