Rami Malek's Oscar Speech Was Censored in China

Rami Malek Is Reportedly A Bee’s Dick From Being The James Bond Baddie

With production expected to start this spring, MGM and Eon are getting closer to deciding who will be joining Daniel Craig in his next outing as Agent 007 in the 25th James Bond movie.

Sources indicate that Billy Magnussen is the top choice to play the Central Intelligence Agency operative that crosses paths with Bond, though it's not known if an actual offer is on the table.

Daniel Craig is returning to play James Bond once again in the still-untitled Bond 25, and now a new report says that the British spy will be facing off against a villain to be played by recent Oscar victor Rami Malek.

But now, Malek's team has reportedly "successfully negotiated" to ensure the 37-year-old actor can film both Mr. Robot and Bond 25, people familiar with the matter told Collider.

The reports build on claims by Wonder Woman star Said Taghmaoui, who is of Moroccan descent, that he was cast to play a blind villain of North African ancestry when Danny Boyle was still director of Bond 25.

It was being reported earlier that Malek was being eyed for the villain role, but his schedule on the last season of his breakout show "Mr. Robot" which shoots from March through July, was a hindrance. Do you think Malek would make a good Bond villain?

Sprint's 5G network will come to select cities in May
They include Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix and Washington, D.C. From the start, the company is designing mobile 5G footprints covering these downtown metros.

Universal will be handling worldwide distribution on "Bond 25", while MGM oversees domestic in partnership with Annapurna through the new United Artists Releasing label.

In addition, producers are seeking talent for a new Central Intelligence Agency agent role. According to Variety, "Fukunaga's most recent draft had the character written younger to fit Magnussen's age", so while an offer isn't on the table yet, it seems like it's his part to lose. The upcoming 25th film will be the final one starring Craig as the British super-spy.

The cast of the film now features Léa Seydoux as Madeleine Swann, Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny, and Ben Whishaw as Q.

Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes and Lea Seydoux will all return in the new movie.

Bond 25 will hit theaters on April 8th, 2020.
