Rami Malek's Oscar Speech Was Censored in China

Rami Malek's Oscar Speech Was Censored in China

Variety reported that producers are going through "chemistry reads" with James Bond actor Daniel Craig to find the best actresses to play the roles. Not only that, Billy Magnussen is also the top choice to play a Central Intelligence Agency operative that will cross paths with James Bond.

Daniel Craig is returning to play James Bond once again in the still-untitled Bond 25, and now a new report says that the British spy will be facing off against a villain to be played by recent Oscar victor Rami Malek.

JAMES BOND: New report in Collider says Rami Malek is in "final negotiations' to play the Bond 25 villain".

But now, Malek's team has reportedly "successfully negotiated" to ensure the 37-year-old actor can film both Mr. Robot and Bond 25, people familiar with the matter told Collider. Wonder Woman's Said Taghmaou said he was in the running for the role back when Danny Boyle was directing the movie, so one thing that seems to have carried over to Cari Joji Fukunaga's vision is that they're after someone of North African descent to play the villain. Do you think Malek would make a good Bond villain?

That brings us to the Central Intelligence Agency agent role, for which Magnussen is reportedly "top choice", per Variety.

In addition to Malek, another name linked with Bond 25 is Billy Magnussen, who recently appeared in Fukunaga's Netflix series Maniac. As is noted in the article, Mr. Robot is produced by Universal Cable Productions, and Bond 25 is being distributed Universal Pictures, so there's definitely room in there for an scheduling shuffle to have been worked out, in-house.

Also in the report it's claimed that Fukunaga submitted his latest draft at the start of 2019.

According to Collider, Malek is now in the final negotiation stages that would see him join a cast that includes Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Léa Seydoux and Ralph Fiennes.

The as-yet-untitled Bond 25 is due to hit cinemas on April 8, 2020.
