Guardians of the Galaxy star and professional WWE wrestler Dave ‘Batista’ Bautista has just signed on to be a baddy called Hinx in Bond 24.
In Guardians Bautista played Drax – a gigantic, grunting hero. It looks as if for Bond 24 he has been cast as a gigantic, grunting villain. I put my money on him pulling it off.
All that we know so far, away from that odd name Hinx, is that the character ‘will have several altercations with Daniel Craig’s 007 throughout the film and also a driving sequence.’
So all indications are towards Hinx not being the main villain, otherwise you would hope he would have a lot more than ‘several altercations…and a driving sequence’. Looks like Hinx will be a henchman of the main boogie-man.
Bond 24 begins shooting this December under the warm wing of Skyfall director, Sam Mendes. The movie is set to open first in the UK on October 23rd 2015.
Two days ago we reported that the french actress Lea Seydoux had signed on as a femme fetale. Two roles in two days? Bond 24 is moving up a gear.
