Seeing how the latter is without doubt one of the biggest entries within the franchise, maybe this bodes nicely for 25?
If something, it ought to recommend that the writers’ room wants much less testosterone. However, Bond 25 remains to be monitoring to be launched in 2020. Along with Craig, the movie stars returning faces Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, and Ralph Fiennes, with current Oscar winner Rami Malek reportedly set to play the villain. Presumably with mouthpiece.
