Producers of the movie are looking for a former athlete who is physically fit enough to fill in the demanding role.

Big casting news reveals a major spoiler for "Bond 24". The producers of the new James Bond installment are looking for a "physically imposing" henchman who is in the vein of Oddjob or Jaws, the classic villains in "Goldfinger" and "Moonraker".

James Bond fansite, MI6, reported that the search was on for the main assassin who would have "several altercations with 's 007 throughout the film and also a driving sequence." They are looking for former sports athletes, someone considered "unusual" and stands over 6' 2" between the age of 30 to 45. The character's working name is Hinx but it may change before filming starts.

Plot details on the new movie are still kept under wraps. However, it was previously reported that the cast and crew would be heading to Obertilliach in Austria for a slew of winter action scenes in January. The team initially wanted to shoot in Norway but was hindered by finance.

"Bond 24" is written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan. Sam Mendes returns to direct. The pic is set to open in theaters nationwide on November 6, 2015.
