The upcoming Bond 25 is reportedly eyeing Lupita Nyong’o for its female lead. With the next installment in the Bond franchise marking Daniel Craig’s fifth (and likely final) outing as the British super-spy, and with Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) having replaced Danny Boyle as director, casting is now well underway.
The franchise is still on the lookout for its female lead, as well as its villain, both of which are roles that have traditionally carried considerable weight and relevance in the lengthy Bond canon. Though the road to Bond 25 has not been as smooth as past titles in the franchise have faced, the list of actors considered for the film’s beefier roles thus far have all been formidable choices. Actually getting those actors on board, however, has more often than not proved a frustrating experience for fans and Eon Productions alike.
