While SKYFALL shook up the Bondverse in a number of regards, it’s sounding like the next picture in the series will be getting back in touch with at least one time-tested Bondian proclivity.
MI6 has a quick and interesting article indicating that The Powers That Be are currently undertaking the casting of a henchman…an 'iconic' henchman, no less.
Casting has begun for the main assassin, with the search specifically focussed on someone extremely physically fit and over 6' 2".
Former sports athletes will be under consideration along with anyone 'very unusual'. The character has the working name of 'Hinx' (which may change before shooting starts)
The goal is to find the next Jaws or Oddjob - a henchman so different to anything that has gone before that they will become instantly iconic in the film series.
More details from MI6, HERE.
Look for the next Bond adventure, again helmed by SKYFALL’s Sam Mendes, on screens early November 2015.
