JAMES BOND 24 Seeking 'Instantly Iconic' Henchman
The 24th JAMES BOND film team is looking to cast a "physically imposing henchman" for the title character to face.
It reads, "Casting has begun for the main assassin, with the search specifically focussed on someone extremely physically fit and over 6' 2". Whoever wins the role will have several altercations with Daniel Craig's 007 throughout the film and also a driving sequence. Former sports athletes will be under consideration along with anyone 'very unusual'. The character has the working name of 'Hinx' (which may change before shooting starts) and is said to be between 30 and 45 years old... The goal is to find the next Jaws or Oddjob - a henchman so different to anything that has gone before that they will become instantly iconic in the film series."
Under the direction of Sam Mendes, filming is set to start in December 2014, with a November 6, 2015 release.
