Bohemian Rhapsody star Rami Malek could potentially play the role of the next villain in the next James Bond film.
Bond 25 is set to begin shooting in March 2019.
The report also quotes sources saying that Malek, who recently bagged the Golden Globe nomination in the Best Actor category, was being ‘eyed for the villain role’.
However, Malek’s casting might hit a roadblock.
The actor who plays the lead in the American drama series Mr Robot might be shooting between March and July.
Hence, due to unavailability of dates during March, the actor is ‘unlikely’ to accept the gig even if offered.
Social media users were quite excited about Malek essaying the role of a villain and also gave their approval.
One user tweeted saying: ‘110% down for Rami Malek as a Bond villain.’
While another suggested that maybe Malek should instead be the new 007 himself, reported Ladbible.
Apart from Daniel Craig, Léa Seydoux, who played Dr Madeleine Swann in Spectre, will be reprising her role as well.
