Bautista As Hinx In Bond 24

By Drax Largo on October 13th, 2014

If Latino Review has a correct scoop (and they usually do) Guardians of the Galaxy’s Dave Bautista may be playing a henchman called in Hinx in the still-untitled Bond 24. This follows last week’s rumor of Lea Seydoux (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) being cast as the movie’s femme fatale.

Word is Bond 24 producers were looking for an iconic Bond villain in the mold of JAWS and ODDJOB.

“We are looking to follow in the tradition of JAWS and ODDJOB in finding an iconic baddy. Hinx (Male, 30 – 45) Ideally over 6′ 2″. Hinx is the main henchman/assassin. We are looking for an imposing extremely physically fit actor. He has several fights with Bond and will have to have stunt training. He has to drive. We are looking for someone very unusual, possibly from a sports background. Height: 180cm – 195cm.”

Sounds like Bautista would definitely fit the bill. The only problem, however, is that there’s still no official confirmation from EON Productions.

As is stands now, Skyfall‘s Same Mendes is set to direct once again, with Daniel Craig, of course, returning in the role of Bond. James Bond.

Bond 24 is scheduled for release November 6, 2015.
