007 will go toe to toe against a classic physically imposing henchman in the 24th James Bond film, MI6 can confirm.

Casting has begun for the main assassin, with the search specifically focussed on someone extremely physically fit and over 6' 2". Whoever wins the role will have several altercations with Daniel Craig's 007 throughout the film and also a driving sequence. Former sports athletes will be under consideration along with anyone 'very unusual'. The character has the working name of 'Hinx' (which may change before shooting starts) and is said to be between 30 and 45 years old.


The goal is to find the next Jaws or Oddjob - a henchman so different to anything that has gone before that they will become instantly iconic in the film series.

MI6 can also confirm that Bond 24 shooting starts in December and will run to June 2015 at Pinewood Studios and on location.
Set-Up:
Television: Panasonic Viera 50" Plasma TCP50GT50
A/V: Onkyo HT-S5400 7.1-Channel Home Theater

Oddjob and Jaws, while both super strong and (mostly) mute, are completely different in physical appearance.
Just a fly in the ointment. The monkey in the wrench. The pain in the ass.

That is not the point. They're similar in that they're memorable and have memorable qualities + campy elements.

Killer hat, razor teeth. Seemingly invincible. Etc.

I really hope they do not go on and on about Bond's age in this one. For Casino he became a '00' and in QoS he tied up loose ends...for Skyfall he became out dated and worn out.

Enough about the age! Just give me a terrorist that wants to take over the world, has a layer on a private island and one or two plot twists.

PLEASE!

or they could go with a more realistic approach...

James Bond : age 93
Status: Retire Extremely Dangerous

Bond and Q come out of retirement to take on Shredder while tracking down four green assailants thru Sin City who stole Bond's Martini.


No?

So they want someone so different who is just like characters who came before. Typical Hollywood "high concept", low IQ thinking. Do they even have an interesting plot or did they just think, "we need an Oddjob" and that will make the movie.

I thought the whole purpose of the reboot with Daniel Craig was to get away from all the bad jokes and campiness and present a grittier, more violent, more serious treatment. Are we going to throw that out now? Are we going to be back to this:

their="belongs to", there="place", they're="they are", there's = "there is"
it's="it is", for everything else use "its"
then="after", than="compared with"
"a lot" not "alot"

I think they meant that they wanted to create another iconic/memorable character and are using Oddjob or Jaws as a template.

They can still do that and be believable without being cartoonish. I'm assuming like a Bane type of character without the mask.

Just because they use a henchmen doesn't necessarily mean they're throwing out the grittiness of the new films. That's a big leap in logic. To me it sounds like they just want to make a memorable foe for Bond.
