A source close to the production told the tabloid that while "everyone thinks Angelina Jolie is going to get the part", the bosses "want Helena more". The insider also confirmed that the cast is currently being finalised.

The 25th chapter of the James Bond saga will be the last to star Daniel Craig, who has been playing agent 007 since Casino Royale in 2006. Danny Boyle will be taking care of things behind the camera. Filming is expected to begin in December, with a premiere date fixed for November 2019.
