Baz Bamigboye over at the Daily Mail claims to have the scoop on a surprise that director Sam Mendes sprung on his cast at a rehearsal for the new James Bond film this week.
According to the report, 75 year old Albert Finney has been cast in Bond 23 – to be formally unveiled next week. An insider apparently told Bamigboye that…
It was one of those fabulous “This can’t get any better!” moments because Mendes has upped the game by bringing in Bardem and Fiennes — and they’ve already got Dame Judi Dench.
So you think, well, who else can they get to make this any classier?
Also rumored in the article is news that John Logan might have been asked by Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, producers of the Bond films, to at least one other 007 screenplay.
Leave your comments as to what kind of role Finney would be suitable… villain, ally (someone inside MI6 or a foreign contact), etc?
