As previously announced, Gallic thesp Mathieu Amalric (“The Diving Bell and the Butterfly”) plays Bond nemesis Dominic Greene. Ukrainian actress Olga Kurylenko plays Bond girl Camille, who leads 007 to Greene, while Brit actress Gemma Arterton (“St. Trinian’s”) plays MI6 Agent Fields. Director Marc Forster started work on the pic at Pinewood this month. Sony Pictures Releasing Intl. is releasing the pic worldwide on Nov. 7.
