Rami Malek to be roped as a baddie in the untitled Bond 25!
Looks like Bohemian Rhapsody star Rami Malek is on a roll! After his stunning portrayal as Freddie Mercury on silver screen, the star is all set to be a villain for his next. Variety reports that Rami is being considered as the next Bond baddie. The report further states that while the makers are working on the untitled Bond 25 starring Daniel Craig, Rami is their first choice. But wait… there’s a twist to the tale. There may be a small problem for the makers of Bond. Reason: his filming commitments for the franchise Mr. Robot.
Production for both the films is said to overlap, which casts a shadow on Rami's role. Reportedly, while Mr. Robot is set to commence filming from March through July, Bond 25 will start it’s shooting at Pinewood Studios on March 4, 2019. Always seen in solid roles, Malek is being nominated at the Golden Globe in the Best Performance Actor - Drama for his spectacular role in Bohemian Rhapsody.

This Bond film will be one of a kind since it will not feature Dame Judi Dench as M after her character was killed in the preceding film Skyfall. If by any chance Rami is signed for Bond 25, it’ll be a visual treat to watch him and Craig in a single frame on celluloid.
