Rami Malek to play villain as first ‘Bond 25’

Newcomers of director Cary Fukunaga’s installment of the iconic franchise include Bohemian Rhapsody‘s Rami Malek, Flash‘s Dali Benssalah, Velvet Buzzsaw‘s Billy Magnussen, Blade Runner 2049‘s Ana de Armas, Captain Marvel‘s Lashana Lynch, and Quicksand‘s David Dencik, with Malek playing a villain.

“I will be making sure Mr. Bond doesn’t have an easy ride in this,” the Oscar winner said in a recorded message released during a live-streamed event on Thursday.

Malek also appeared on Good Morning America, where he further confirmed the “villainous” nature of his mystery role and promised to give Craig “a run for his money.”

The announcement was made from Jamaica outside Ian Flemming’s Goldeneye villa, where he wrote all the James Bond novels. Parts of Dr. No and Live and Let Die were also filmed in Jamaica.

An official title is still under wraps, but producer Barbara Broccoli teases, “Bond is not on active service when we start the film. So, he is actually enjoying himself in Jamiaca,” which she calls a “spiritual home” for the character. “We start the story here and we built an extraordinary house for him,” Broccoli continues, but adds that there’s “quite a ride in store for Mr. Bond.”
