*This could be a nice switch up for Chiwetel Ejiofor after “12 Years a Slave” acclaim.

Ejiofor is the frontrunner to play the next villain in “Bond 24.”

No word yet from his reps or MGM on the strong possibility, but at least, it’s a strong possibility.

Sam Mendes will be directing the 23rd Bond sequel and John Logan of “Skyfall” is writing the screenplay.

So this versatile actor will be in good hands.

If so, Ejiofor will be going up against the greatest spy ever played by Daniel Craig in what will be his fourth time as James Bond.

Although there are other actors in consideration, Ejiofor is definitely regarded the frontrunner.

But his status of the role is not the only unofficial thing about the movie; it’s yet to be titled.

Nevertheless, the film is slated for a Friday, Nov. 6, 2015 release.

More details to come soon.
