Has ‘12 Years a Slave’ star Chiwetel Ejifor been tapped to star in the 24th instalment of the ‘James Bond’ movie series.
Well, if a reported request put in by its producers, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, is anything to go by, the answer to the above…is yes.
Casting news below…
Set for a November 6th 2015 release, the latest ‘Bond’ movie will reportedly see Ejifor portray its latest villain, starring alongside Daniel Craig, Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris, on course to reprise her role as Bond secretary MoneyPenny.
If Ejifor agrees to the reported request made by the movie’s masterminds, his signing on would come after ‘Slave‘ picked up the ‘Best Film’ Oscar in the March of 2014, and after his co-star Lupita Nyong’o was linked to the forthcoming ‘Star Wars Episode VII’, in talks to take on the role of its leading lady.
