According to The Wrap, 12 Years a Slave and Serenity star Chiwetel Ejiofor is the frontrunner to play the lead villain in the next James Bond movie (which despite a convincing fake trailer, still has no title). Sam Mendes is set to direct Bond 24, and Skyfall scribe John Logan also returned to pen the screenplay. There aren't any solid character details as of yet, byt the site emphasise the fact that he is Sony and MGM's favourite for the role of 007's next foe. Meanwhile, casting for two key female parts is also underway. One is for a new Bond girl, while the other is described as, "a Scandinavian with a troubled past who will serve as a brief love interest for Bond." Would you guys like to see Ejiofor (a fan favourite choice for Black Panther) as the next Bond baddie?
UPDATE: According to Aftonbladet (via Bleeding Cool), Swedish actresses Ida Engvoll and Disa Östrand are among those who have tested for the movie. Could one of them be the next Bond Girl?
