Bond 24: Henchman Search & More Location News

James Bond Radio reports that Bond 24 is looking for an actor to play the henchman of the film's bad guy.

This character is in line with the tall and imposing types from earlier films like Jaws  (Richard Kiel) or Red Grant (Martin Shaw).

I Love You Man

Here's the description:

Hinx (Male, 30 – 45) - Ideally over 6' 2". Hinx is the main henchman/assassin. We are looking for an imposing extremely physically fit actor. He has several fights with Bond and will have to have stunt training. He has to drive. We are looking for someone very unusual, possibly from a sports background.

Meantime  the small and picturesque mountain town of Obertilliach in Austria will be used for three days of filming in January capturing wintry action. The production originally had planned to film in Norway but dropped those due to financial considerations.

Sam Mendes is once again directing the film. Veteran James Bond screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have returned to perform rewrites. The duo have been the early writers on the film series since 1999's "The World is Not Enough,"and  they would often do the initial script drafts while other writers like Paul Haggis and John Logan would  polish. The pair were set to retire from the series after handing in their early drafts of "Skyfall," with Logan subsequently taking over the later drafts. Logan was writing the latest adventure solo.

Daniel Craig is back as Bond--we will also see the return of Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris reprising their roles from "Skyfall" as M, Q, and Moneypenny.

Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson will produce the new film

The sequel is still targeting a November 6th 2015 release.
