Main Cast Confirmed for Bond 25, Rami Malek Likely Villain

And there are still some pretty big reveals to be had, even in the shadow of the missing title. There's still no title yet, but producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson and director Cary Fukunaga revealed a slew of new and familiar faces joining Daniel Craig on his next Bond outing. Jeffrey Wright will also make an unexpected return, meaning he will become the first threepeat Felix Leiter.

In the film, Bond will go on a mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist, which puts him on trail of a mysterious villain armed with alarming new technology. We consider Jamaica Bond's spiritual home. No, not at all.

Also joining the cast are new Bond girls Ana de Armas and Lashana Lynch, as well as David Dencik, Billy Magnussen and Dali Benssalah.

Malek, who won the Oscar for best actor this past year for Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, just earned the role for the James Bond nemesis in the upcoming "Bond 25" film.

Broccoli told the Press Association: "He's saying it's his last film, but I hope it's not, we'll have to wait and see".

She also said the film is as yet untitled. Join us live in Jamaica for the #BOND25 start of production.

While Daniel might be his favorite, Craig has actually admitted to being sick of playing James Bond.

Fukunaga took over directing from Danny Boyle, who departed past year over creative differences.

What will Bond 25 be about? It's killer that Broccoli, Wilson, Fukunaga, and a few of the film's stars got as candid as they could about Bond 25 here, given all that the project has faced leading up to this moment. In 2014, she moved to Los Angeles and began her Hollywood film career. More than likely, that pesky script work has left the team without a convenient name for Bond 25. After that uh. I guess we'll find out?

While that particular thought isn't confirmed in any way, shape, or form, it feels like something that'd be a pretty wonderful finale. "So many generations have grown up with these films", he said, noting that Craig had done an "astounding job" as 007 during his time in the famous suit.
