Cuba-Spanish Ana-de-Armas and American Rami Malec will accompany British actor Daniel Craig in his fifth and final film as James Bond, the 25th part of the series that still has a title and whose story revealed very little on Thursday.
The actor of the new 007 movie, scheduled to release in April 2020, was reported by its director, American Carrie Fukunaga, in an online Jamaica event.
In spite of the criticism he received when he was elected to the sixth incarnation of the legendary British spy, Craig, 51, who after leaving this role will leave the role, is the new director's favorite Bond, according to Fukunaga, who wants that the next one is "a great head," and the actor who inherits it "is very difficult".
Rami Malek, Oscar recently acclaimed singer Freddie Mercury's "Bohemian Rhapsody," hinted in a video message that he would play the bad guy in the movie: "I promise you I will make sure Mr. Bond is not easy. "
And everything makes us suspect that the beautiful Ana de Armas, who shone in 2017 in "Blade Runner 2049," and at the end of this year, should appear with Craig in the "Knives Outside" thriller, it will be a new "girl Bond ".
"It is amazing to be here, there is no better place than that," says the Spanish Spanish Cuban, whose career starts in 2006 with "Rose of France" by Spanish director Manuel Gutierrez Aragon and continues on television in Spain before to fly to Hollywood. thanks to works such as "Amigos de armas" and "Manos de Piedra", both were premiered in 2016.
"This is very exciting," he said, admitting that "I have not yet begun to prepare myself."
Nonetheless, De Armas should challenge the seductive spy and female role with French actress Lea Seidou, who returns to the saga after working on the previous Spectrum (2015), giving life to Dr. Madeleine Swan .
Rescue Rescue Mission
Among the actors being repeated is also Ralph Fiennes, who gives life to intelligence services chief M, Ben Wieshaw, who will return to embody the genius Q, Jeffrey Wright, who will resume the role of agent of CIA who helped 007 in "Quantum of Solace" and Naomie Harris as Moneypenny.
Some scenes are already filmed in Norway, "due to the weather," explained Fukunaga and Jamaica, on the island where the English writer Ian Fleming created his character in the 1950s and when the first 007 film "Dr. No" was filmed. (1962) and Vive y deja morir (1973).
"We'll be back at Pinewood Studios later, near London," the director said.
Producer Barbara Broccoli, on the other hand, gave some clues, albeit a bit of a plot, explaining, for example, that when the story began, Bond was not on duty but "amused" Jamaica.
But peace ends quickly, according to a brief official plot, "when his old friend Felix Lajter of the CIA wants to get help." "The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be much more insidious than expected and puts Bond on the path of a mysterious villain armed with new and dangerous technology."
The film was originally released at the end of 2019, but the project suddenly slowed down when veteran Danny Boyle, a director of mythical films such as Trainspotting or Slumdog Millionaire, said he had left him for "creative differences" with producers.
In September, they announced the signing of Fukunaga, a 41-year-old California-born director and screenwriter, known primarily as a writer and performer of the first-ever hit TV series "True Detective," winning Best Director of Drama Series in 2014 year
He wrote and directed the Spanish drama "Sin Nombre" (2009), a Mexican-American co-production starring Mexican Paula Gaitan and Honduras Edgar Flores.
