The Swedish press claim to have a tip on one of their locals appearing in Bond 23.
Expressen reports that local star Ola Rapace has been turning down jobs to make room for a top secret, big budget, English language film. The paper assumes this to be Bond 23 – helmed by Sam Mendes and staring Daniel Craig.
MI6 notes the remote connection that the actors ex-wife, Noomi Rapace, played Lisbeth Salander in the original Swedish film adaptation of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo – an English language remake starring Daniel Craig is currently in production.
Also in the news this week is two-time Felix Leiter, Jeffery Wright, who told Coming Soon that he was yet to hear if he will be back in Bond 23. Wright has developed quite a fan following in the course of his two films and any move to write him out may lead to disappointed viewers – particularly after Craig teased us with news this Bond film was going to be a ‘Classic’ flick.
