Rami Malek to play Bond villain in Daniel Craig's final 007 film

Sean Connery as 007

The upcoming 25th James Bond film which is yet to be titled has one more member incorporated into its team - Rami Malek.

Here are some images from Rami's Instagram account.

With Bond 25 finally - finally - about to go into production after a fair amount of behind-the-scenes rejigging, the filmmakers took to the internet for a live-streamed announcement from Ian Fleming's GoldenEye villa in Jamaica.

Malek wasn't at the official announcement in Jamaica, but appeared via video message to say (via the BBC): "I'm stuck here in NY in production but I'm very much looking forward to joining the whole cast and crew".

Whatever it's called, the movie opens in theaters on April 8, 2020. Since Daniel Craig is now filming in Jamaica, it is likely it will happen in the place when Ian Fleming wrote so many iconic Bond books.

Bond 25 is set for release in April 2020. Fukunaga hailed Daniel Craig as his favorite bond.

Delays and disagreement have made for an especially long break between Bond films. Jeffrey Wright will also make an unexpected return, meaning he will become the first threepeat Felix Leiter.

The script is something of a collaboration with Neal Purvis & Robert Wade, Scott Z. Burns, Cary Joji Fukunaga and Phoebe Waller-Bridge all having input.

The only plot hints given away were that Bond is "not on active service" at the start of the film; he is instead "enjoying himself" in Jamaica. A mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist quickly unravels and leads Bond on a trail to a mysterious villain armed with unsafe new technology. "See you all soon". The production has already shot in Norway and will head over to the UK's Pinewood studio then onto Matera in Italy.

"We consider Jamaica Bond's spiritual home", said Barbara Broccoli, one of the film's producers. "Daniel is my favourite Bond", the director said.

Just shy of 60 years since James Bond first graced the big screen in Dr. No, the twenty-fifth 007 movie saunters down the pike.
