Rami Malek as the next Bond Girl? Yup, you read that correctly. When Mr. Robot met Mr. Bond! Rami Malek may be playing the unnamed villain in the upcoming James Bond film, No Time to Die, but he got more intimate with British actor Daniel Craig than most of the franchise’s baddies.
Hollywood superstar Daniel Craig is busy with the shoot of Bond film ‘No Time To Die’. Craig’s last movie as James Bond also features Rami Malek. The Academy Award winner has been roped in to play 007 nemeses in the upcoming project. Recently Rammi revealed that he shared a kiss with Daniel Craig while they filmed his fifth. He made this candid confession on Late Show With Stephen Colbert
Malek said, “We had a scene that was a very complicated scene and [Daniel and me] were rehearsing for it with our terrific director, Cary Joji Fukunaga. And, we’re sitting at a table over hours just batting about ideas back and forth. And we finally cracked this really challenging scene. He grabbed me and picked me up. I can’t tell who initiated the next moment if it was him or I, but a kiss transpired between the two of us.”
“I’m going to say that Daniel initiated it … I took a moment, caught my breath, and said, ‘Does that make me a Bond girl?’Colbert asked if it was welcome, and Malek said, “Very much so.”
The shoot of the film is taking place at a different location with some hi-end action sequences being shot. Malek’s involvement has been kept under wraps to date. The unit has been filming chase scenes around Matera’s winding, narrow streets. Bond’s iconic car, a vintage DB5 Aston Martin was also seen there.
Previously named Shatterhand, ‘No Time To Die‘ also stars Naomie Harris, Lashana Lynch, Ana de Armas, Ralph Fiennes, and Ben Whishaw. It will hit theaters on April 8, 2020. The fourth and final season of “Mr. Robot” premieres Sunday at 10 p.m.
