Helena Bonham Carter and Angelina Jolie Rumored to Be Up For The Next JAMES BOND Villain Role
It looks like Danny Boyle is looking to do something a little different for the James Bond franchise with Bond 25. According to Mirror, the next big bad Bond film villain will be a woman, and Helena Bonham Carter is rumored to be the actress they want in the role.
If this is true, it wouldn't be the first time that Bonham Carter has played a villain. She was great as the sadistic witch Bellatrix Lestrange in the final four Harry Potter films. She's also taken on sinister roles in Dark Shadows and Alice in Wonderland.
She would certainly make for an interesting Bond villain! She's played a lot of interesting and unique characters in her career. There are no details on who the villain could be, but I'm curious to see what exactly she would bring to a Bond villain!
The report also says that Angelina Jolie is up for the role. According to an inside source, "Everyone thinks Angelina Jolie is going to get the part, but bosses want Helena more. At the moment they are just finalizing the cast."
If the bosses want Helena, then I imagine she'll be the one to get the role, if this is rumor turns out to be true.
The screenplay for the film is being written by John Hodge. who has previously worked with Boyle on films such as The Beach and Trainspotting. Daniel Craig is also confirmed to reprise his role of James Bond.
What do you think about the possibility of seeing Helena Bonham Carter or Angelina Jolie as the next main Bond villain?
