James Bond 25: Helena Bonham Carter Linked to Villain Role

Helena Bonham Carter is rumoured to be in the running to play the villain opposite Daniel Craig in the next James Bond film...

Key ingredients have finally fallen into place for the next James Bond film over the past few months. We know that it’ll start filming at the end of this year. We know that Danny Boyle will be directing, working from a screenplay by John Hodge. Daniel Craig, of course, will be back playing 007. And the movie itself is with us at the back end of next year.

Now, The Mirror has been wading through rumors with regards who is going to play the villain in the new movie. And it’s arguing that Helena Bonham Carter is at the top of the producers’ list for the role. Exactly what the role is? Good question, no idea. Just, at this stage, that it’s the film’s foe.

Its report acknowledges too that Angelina Jolie is in the running for the movie. That said, The Mirror has a middling track record when it comes to film rumours, so we’d take things with requisite salt for the time being.

James Bond 25 arrives in cinemas in October 2019. We’ll keep you posted, as always, as we hear more.
