ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION Oscar winner Rami Malek will play the international villain who Daniel Craig's James Bond must battle in the British spy franchise's 25th film set for release next year, the producers announced on Thursday (April 25).

Malek, age 37, drew critical acclaim for his portrayal of Queen front man Freddie Mercury in last year's "Bohemian Rhapsody." "I promise you all I will be making sure that Mr. Bond does not have an easy ride of it," Malek said in a recorded announcement from New York that was aired as part of a webcast about the new movie.

The still untitled movie known by the working title "Bond 25" will be Craig's fifth go-around as Britain's most famous fictional secret agent, and will feature on-location scenes in Jamaica, the producers said in the webcast from the Caribbean island.

After 2015 film "Spectre," Craig had said he would rather "slash his wrists" than play Bond again.

But in 2017, the actor confirmed he would return to the role one last time
