London: Makers of upcoming `James Bond` movie are reportedly looking for a physically over-bearing actor to play the role of the main assassin in the film.

The 24th installment of the spy franchise, which will again have Daniel Craig playing James Bond, is considering former athletes for the character of the villain, suggest reports.

"Casting has begun for the main assassin, with the search specifically focused on someone extremely physically fit and over 6` 2. Whoever wins the role will have several altercations with Daniel Craig`s 007 throughout the film and also a driving sequence," a source said.

"Former sports athletes will be under consideration along with anyone very unusual. The character has the working name of Hinx (which may change before shooting starts) and is said to be between 30 and 45 years old," the source added.
