It’s James Bond time, baby! Daniel Craig and director Cary Joji Fukunaga convened in Jamaica for an announcement about Bond 25, due in 2020. Joining the cast for the newest Bond movie are Rami Malek, Billy Magnussen, Ana de Armas, Dali Benssalah, and Captain Marvel’s Lashana Lynch. Léa Seydoux, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, and Jeffrey Wright will return for the new movie. Producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson also confirmed that the newest Bond script was written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, Scott Z. Burns, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Bond 25 — which may be called Shatterhand, but Wilson said it was still untitled — will shoot in Jamaica, London, Norway, and Matera, Italy.

In February, it was reported that Magnussen was the top choice to play a new CIA agent, and that Malek will play the villain. And now, enjoy a totally normal, not at all awkward hello from Bond’s new baddie:
