Casting News: The Next James Bond Villain and a Remake of a Classic Western

Posted on December 5, 2014 at 10:10 pm

Just ten more months until the next James Bond film! Daniel Craig will return as 007, and he will be joined by Oscar-winner Christoph Waltz, along with “Guardians of the Galaxy” star Dave Bautista, Andrew Scott (Moriarty to Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock) and Monica Bellucci.

Just as intriguing, it seems they’re working on a remake of one of the all-time Western classics, The Magnificent Seven (itself a remake of Seven Samurai). The cast for the new version may include Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt. Two excellent choices, five more to go. Plus, who will play the Eli Wallach role?
