|Rami Malek a condition to play the villain of 'Bond 25'|
The actor Daniel Craig returns to embody the agent 007 in the film that arrives at theaters in April 2020.
On April 3, 2020 Bond 25 will be released in the UK, the new installment starring agent 007 (Daniel Craig, Skyfall, Specter), which also has Oscar winner Rami Malek as a villain. Now, in statements to the Daily Mirror, the Bohemian Rhapsody interpreter has explained what condition put the director Cary Joji Fukunaga to accept the role: that he was not linked to any form of religious extremism. Fortunately, that was not the intention of the filmmaker.
"He's a great character and I'm very excited," says Rami Malek. "But there was one thing that I spoke with Cary [Joji Fukunaga]." I said: "We can not identify him with any terrorist act that reflects an ideology or a religion. That's not something I would consider, so you can stop telling me if you chose me because of that. "But clearly that was not his vision, so he's a very different terrorist."
Of American nationality but of Egyptian parents, Malek wanted to make sure that the new villain of the franchise did not fall in stereotypes. Will his character be blind as rumors indicate? Time will tell. Meanwhile, remember that the cast will also be Ana de Armas, Léa Seydoux, Ralph Fiennes, Billy Magnussen, Naomie Harris, Lashana Lynch, Ben Whishaw, etc.
