Rhys Ifans joins Daniel Craig and Javier Bardem in the next James Bond film
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
To me, Rhys Ifans will always be known as Hugh Grant’s quirky roommate in NOTTING HILL, but the British actor is quickly making his way into mainstream films, nabbing the villain in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN and now landing a part in the next James Bond film. Which means that 2012 will be the year of the Ifans. There’s no word on what part Ifans will play, but he’s another addition to an amazing cast for a Bond film that includes Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, Judi Dench, Ralph Fiennes and Naomi Harris. Sam Mendes (AMERICAN BEAUTY) is directing the film from a script that was originally supposed to be written by Peter Morgan, but is now being wrriten by Patrick Marber.
The cast is great, but the exciting thing about BOND 23 for me is Sam Mendes. I can’t wait to see what an Oscar winning director like Mendes can do with a character like James Bond. Filming is set to begin this fall and the film hits theaters on November 12th, 2012.
