'Bond 25' Cast Was Announced, Including Rami Malek As The Villain

We don't know anything about his character yet, but in a recorded message (Malek was in production in the United States and couldn't join the others) he promised to ensure that Bond "does not have an easy time of it" in the upcoming film.

Bond 25 will be released in theaters on April 8, 2020; outside of its usual November timeframe.

So, we know Craig is going to the lush Caribbean island nation for Bond 25 - but who will tag along?

In terms of the newcomers, Ana de Armas (Blade Runner 2049), Dali Benssalah (Nox), David Dencik (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Lashana Lynch (Captain Marvel), Billy Magnussen (Aladdin) and Malek will have a licence to thrill film fans. Bohemian Rhapsody star Malek is is expected to portray the film's villain. I can't wait to see you all soon. It's set to film in Jamaica, Norway, London and Italy. Barbara revealed that the film will begin with Bond on a break from his service as he is relaxing in Jamaica.

While nothing official was announced about who Malek will be playing, we're fairly certain that he'll be a villain. GoldenEye will not be used as a filming location for Bond 25.

Despite being untitled, the movie plot will see Bond enjoying a tranquil live in Jamaica, having left active service- but his retirement is short lived when an old Central Intelligence Agency friend comes along.

James Bond's next adventure will go untitled for a little longer. This ends when the FBI's Felix Leiter appears to ask for help.

The new film, Craig's last as 007, will be the 25th in the franchise's epic history.

The Playlist, an industry news site, reported that Scott Z. Burns has been hired to rewrite the original script by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.

Filmmaker Cary Jogi Fukunaga is the first American to direct a 007 film. It was initially to be directed by Danny Boyle, who exited the project abruptly this summer over creative differences.

Ralph Fiennes and Ben Whishaw are returning as M and Q respectively, with Naomie Harris coming back as Moneypenny.
