BOND 24: Monica Bellucci & SHERLOCK Star Andrew Scott To Join The Cast?

In two days, the official title and the cast of the new James Bond film will be announced, but that hasn't stopped speculation about who might be in that cast and Monica Belucci is in the mix.


 
When the official title and cast are announceed on Thursday you can put all Bond 24 rumors to bed, but until then, anything is fair game. Which brings us to two casting rumors that were reported today by Deadline and The Mirror.

Nancy Tartaglione from Deadline reports, "I’ve also heard that Monica Bellucci may be in the mix." The Italian actress is best known to mainstream audiences for her roles in The Matrix Reloaded (2003) and The Passion of the Christ (2004).

The Mirror believes Irish actor Andrew Scott, who plays Moriarty in BBC's Sherlock, "is set to appear in the new James Bond movie as a villain." They believe the Irish actor is looking to make the leap from TV to film, just like his Sherlock co-stars, Benedict Cumberbatch ("Star Trek Into Darkness") and Martin Freeman ("The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies"). The Mirror's inside source added, "Andrew was hand-picked for a role in the new Bond movie after film bosses loved his star turn in Sherlock."


BOND 24 will be directed by Sam Mendes ("Skyfall"), from a screenplay written by John Logan. The cast will include: Daniel Craig as James Bond (007), Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Miss Moneypenny, and Ben Whishaw as Q. The film will be released in the UK and US on October 23, 2015 and November 6, 2015, respectively.
