Report: 'Guardians of the Galaxy' star Dave Bautista set to join new James Bond movie
The new James Bond movie, working title "Bond 24," is set to begin filming this December, and a new report indicates that Dave Bautista may be joining the project. This new information follows closely on the heels of news last week that Lea Seydoux is in talks to become a Bond Girl in the film.
Bautista was most recently seen in this summer's Marvel blockbuster, "Guardians of the Galaxy" as Drax, a member of the Guardians team. According to Latino-Review, for the new Bond film, Bautista could be going evil as Hinx, a henchman in the tradition of Oddjob and Jaws.
Sam Mendes is returning to direct the new Bond film after his incredibly successful helming of "Skyfall" in 2012. Daniel Craig will also be back as Bond for his fourth outing. Rory Kinnear, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, and Ralph Fiennes are all set to return as well.
At this point we know little about what to expect from the movie, but Fiennes did tell us this past winter that there are rumors he will once again find himself in the action. That would be a change for the character of M, who regularly (but not always) is behind a desk sending 007 off on missions.
The new Bond movie is due in theaters in just over a year, on November 6, 2015.
