I bet there are many Bond fans out there excited that today is officially the first day of the shooting for the next highly anticipated sequel in the Bond franchise. Also, it has been recently announced that Jeffrey Wright will also return to reprise his role as CIA agent Felix Leiter from ‘Casino Royale.’
Comingsoon.net gives us these details:
Jeffrey Wright, who played CIA agent Felix Leiter opposite Daniel Craig in Casino Royale, will reprise the role in Bond 22. Shooting begins today (January 3) at Pinewood Studios in London. Directed by Marc Forster, the 007 pic also stars Mathieu Amalric, Giancarlo Giannini and Anatole Taubmann.
I have to admit, I have yet to see ‘Casino Royale.’ Every time I try to catch it on TV, I’m completely lost, but I intend to watch it soon because my brother won’t stop nagging me if I don’t. Although I must say you can’t go wrong casting Jeffrey Wright in a film. The first time I had seen this actor was when he stole every scene from Samuel L.Jackson and Christian Bale in ‘Shaft,’ where he played the streetwise thug, “Peeples.”
He is definitely an actor that I’m glad Hollywood is taking more notice of. So what are your thoughts, Bond fanatics? Are you excited about the new film? Discuss!
