The 24th film in the franchise will have "Skyfall" Director Same Mendes returning to helm for the yet to be named title. Main cast members Daniel Craig will be joined by the returning Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny, Rory Kinnear as Bill Tanner and Ben Whishaw as Q who are all reprising their roles.
Casting for the Bond Girl role along with the villains are currently taking place. MI6 previously reported, the villain's henchman in Bond 24 is planned to be a classic physically imposing character who has several altercations with Bond throughout the mission.
" 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 main villain is rumored to be an assassin who the crew wants to be over 6'2", and physically fit for the upcoming role. The movie will be filming in Austria, with a car chase scene in Rome, and shooting in Morocco as well.
