Mikkelsen Confirmed as Bond Baddie


After this morning’s reports on a press conference with Daniel Craig, director Martin Campbell, Judi Dench and producers Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli in Prague regarding Casino Royale it hasn’t taken long to confirm reports that Danish thesp Mads Mikkelsen (King Arthur) will be taking on the role as Le Chiffre the villain for the upcoming Bond feature.

As for that pesky Bond Girl casting Campbell revealed the choice is now down to “two or three… you’ll just have to wait to find out.”

That wasn’t all that was revealed however as the article did delve into the storyline of the film in which the following was said:

Auds will see more insight into M’s back story than they ever have to date in “Casino Royale” with a scene set in her London apartment, constructed in modernist beige by Barrandov, complete with Asian art and Tanqueray gin cocktail service.

Bond himself will show his more sensitive side, said Campbell, in that the film, based on the first of Ian Fleming’s Bond books, reveals how he became “the Bond we all know and love.”

The shoot is expected to move to the Bahamas shortly to shoot a chase sequence at seaside construction site, then will be back to Prague for studio and location work, and Italy and the U.K.’s Pinewood.

Casino Royale hits theaters on November 17.
