Latest details for the upcoming sequel…
MI6 has a casting update for the still untitled James Bond 24 sequel. According to a new report, the production for the film is looking to cast a "physically imposing henchman" character.
Below is a description for the henchman role:
"Casting has begun for the main assassin, with the search specifically focused on someone extremely physically fit and over 6′ 2." Whoever wins the role will have several altercations with Daniel Craig's 007 throughout the film and also a driving sequence. Former sports athletes will be under consideration along with anyone ‘very unusual'. The character has the working name of ‘Hinx' (which may change before shooting starts) and is said to be between 30 and 45 years old… The goal is to find the next Jaws or Oddjob – a henchman so different to anything that has gone before that they will become instantly iconic in the film series," they say.
The sequel is scheduled for a November 6, 2015 release. Sam Mendes will return to the direct the next installment of the franchise.
