’12 Years A Slave’ Star Tapped For ‘James Bond’ Role?

Published: Saturday 5th Apr 2014 by David

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.

      It´s fo the villain role, not Bond´s.

    LOL TGJ guys are always late. They have been talking about Lupita for a while, but the most important thing about her right now is her possible role in Star Wars… but they didn´t say anything until this post today because I was the one who mentioned it yesterday in the last post about her. TGJ always focusing on superficial things first. No wonder their idea of musical icon and genious is Beyonce.
    Anyway, good for Chiwetel too (what a difficult name). He´s great. Javier Bardem has been the best Bond villian ever though.

      No John, they only started doing ent news this week so why would they have spoken about Lupita before?

    • BaddieBey April 5, 2014

      Don’t be silly John, why would they give a damn about Lupita before they changed the site. It’s not as though she’s a musician.

    • JOHNVIDAL April 5, 2014

      Guys! They didn´t say anything about this yesterday. But they read the comments often, and realize they haven´t got their priorities right. They often post about something they read in the comments the day before.. Happens a lot. And I know this is one of those cases. Nothing wrong. Just saying they often focus on the more superficial and not related with talent stuff first.

    Great things once and for all, simply gained a fresh viewer. Precisely what might you advocate regarding your release that you produced at times in the past? Any optimistic?
