Rami Malek confirmed for Bond 25; film will feature Jamaica and Norway

Ralph Fiennes, Rory Kinnear, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris and Léa Seydoux will also be reprising their respective roles as M, Tanner, Q, Moneypenny and Dr Madeleine Swann.

Bond movies tend to be announced in Britain but this time the cast went to Fleming's Goldeneye villa in Jamaica for the announcement.

It'll be shot in Jamaica, Norway, Italy and London's Pinewood Studios.

In terms of the newcomers, Ana de Armas (Blade Runner 2049), Dali Benssalah (Nox), David Dencik (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Lashana Lynch (Captain Marvel), Billy Magnussen (Aladdin) and Malek will have a licence to thrill film fans.

Broccoli echoed those sentiments when she said, "We've got quite a ride in store for Mr. Bond". "No", was filmed on the island, as well as 1973's "Live and Let Die".

"Bond is not on active service when we start the film", producer Barbara Broccoli explained.

Following months of rumours, the stars of "Bond 25" have finally been unveiled. "The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with unsafe new technology", it reads.

This will be Daniel Craig's last ever outing as James Bond, who attended the launch dressed suavely in a white shirt and jacket.

"We're very happy with the Bond we have in Daniel Craig". No, a scientific genius who was also the first Bond movie villain in 1962. The live-stream also revealed one of the sets built in Jamaica, seemingly of that "extraordinary house" Broccoli mentioned. Danny Boyle was initially set to helm the film, but he departed previous year over creative differences. The director of this film was Cary Joji Fukunaga. Maniac's Cary Fukunaga directs. The movie is slated for an April 2020 release.

Even with Wade and Purvis' new script, both Scott Z. Burns (Contagion) and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Killing Eve) were brought in to do rewrites.

This is the first Bond film since "Spectre" four years ago and is expected to be released sometime next year.
