Casting on the next James Bond film continues to fill in. The Daily Mail reports that Ben Whishaw (The Tempest) and Helen McCrory (who plays Narcissa Malfoy in the Harry Potter films) have signed on to the flick, although there are currently no details on their roles. Furthermore, The Daily Mail has confirmed an earlier report that French actress Berenice Marlohe will play the new Bond girl in the upcoming untitled sequel. No details are known about her character beyond “Pretty Lady that 007 will be schtupping at some point.”
Almost everything on the plot is being kept tight under wraps, but that’s usually the case with a Bond film this far out. Daniel Craig will return to play James Bond and Judi Dench is back as “M”. Javier Bardem is on board to play the villain, Naomie Harris is Miss Moneypenny, and the Daily Mail’s Baz Bamigboye says “Ralph Fiennes will play a role so top secret, I swallowed a pill to make me forget what I was told.” The 23rd James Bond film (possibly entitled Skyfall) opens November 9, 2012.
