"Bond 24" Looking for Iconic Bad Guy and Bond Girl

We are looking to follow in the tradition of JAWS and ODDJOB in finding an iconic baddy.

The next 007 film won't hit theaters for yet another 14 months, but there is high anticipation of what the 24th installment of the long-standing Bond franchise would present. Currently, the team behind what is now simply dubbed as "Bond 24" is hard at work finding the suitable Bond girl, a formidable foe, and the right location.

MI6, a website dedicated to everything Bond, named several ladies being considered to play the lead female role opposite Daniel Craig. The list includes Norwegian actress Synnove Macody Lund, Danish actress Birgitte Hjort Sorensen, Norwegian actress Ingrid Bolso Berdal, and Swedish actresses Disa Östrand and Ida Engvoll. While these ladies are being considered, agent Anne Lindberg said that no casting decisions have been made.

Craig, the sixth actor to play the character on film over a span of 50 years, was joined by Bérénice Marlohe in the last movie, Skyfall.

There are also high expectations on the type of villain the fictional British secret service agent would face. The casting call revealed in James Bond Radio would perhaps give the audience an idea of what 007 will be up against.

The casting call says:

We are looking to follow in the tradition of JAWS and ODDJOB in finding an iconic baddy.

Hinx (Male, 30 – 45)

Ideally over 6′ 2″. Hinx is the main henchman/assassin. We are looking for an imposing extremely physically fit actor. He has several fights with Bond and will have to have stunt training. He has to drive. We are looking for someone very unusual, possibly from a sports background.

Height: 180cm – 195cm

In another article, MI6 reports that the next Bond film would shoot in Obertilliach, Austria instead of Norway, although this has yet to be confirmed.

Bond 24 is scheduled to hit UK theaters on Oct. 23, 2015 and in the US on Nov. 6, 2015.
