'James Bond 24' Movie News: Production Starts This Week With One Last Member To Cast, Is It A New 'Bond Girl?' [VIDEO]
With production starting soon, will the cast of Bond 24 add one more member to the crew in the role of Bond girl?
Production on the next James Bond movie is set to begin on Dec. 6 with most of the principal cast coming together at Pinewood Studios to do a table read of the script.
As of now the main cast includes: Daniel Craig returning as Bond, Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny, Rory Kinnear as Bill Tanner, Ben Whishaw as Q, Dave Bautista as an evil henchman, Lea Seydoux as a femme fatale, and most recently Christoph Waltz as the supposed villain.
But is there another female member set to join?
Recent rumors have pegged Oscar winner Hilary Swank as the possible addition to the cast and those could have legs due to the recent activity by the actress who has begun to garner some Oscar buzz for her role in Tommy Lee Jones' Western, The Homesman.
While she would be the oldest Bond girl yet, it would add some pedigree and class to the film that is right now looking to bring back that classic Bond appeal through its look and story.
Other names that have surfaced include Kate Upton and Rihanna, but those have fizzled as soon as they came up. It seems likely that the cast will look to bring in at least one other Bond girl as Seydoux's role seems to be more focused on causing issues for Bond rather than being his aid.
Bond 24 is set to open in theaters on Nov. 6, 2015.
