There have been reports Sam Mendes wants to emphasise dialgue-rich drama over action in the next Bond movie, and while it’s uncertain how much truth there is in that (probably not too much), he certainly seems to be getting a strong cast together, with the likes of Ralph Fiennes, Javier Bardem and Naomie Harris reportedly appearing alongside regulars Daniel Craig and Judi Dench.
Now the Daily Mail reports that Albert Finney will be joining them, playing a foreign office chief. There’s not much more info on his role than that, but then we don’t actually know much about the movie at all, other than that Bardem is going to be a villain and there’s a decent chance it could be called Skyfall.
The Bond producers are notoriously secretive, but with Mendes at the helm, you’ve got to imagine they’re planning something a little special. Either way they’ll have to start shooting fairly soon, as it’s due in UK cinemas of October 26th, 2012.
