"Mr. Bond won't have an easy ride of it," said Rami Malek.

Daniel Craig's James Bond will face off against Rami Malek in the superspy's 25th movie.

We got our first details on Thursday about the next Bond adventure via livestream from GoldenEye, the Jamaican villa where author Ian Fleming created the character.

We didn't get a title, but producer Barbara Broccoli revealed that Bond isn't on active service when the movie begins. We'll find him chilling in Jamaica -- but we all know that won't last long.

It'll be Craig's final outing as 007. Lea Seydoux will also reprise her role as Madeleine Swann from 2015's Spectre. Regulars Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny, Ralph Fiennes as M, Ben Whishaw as Q, Rory Kinnear as Bond pal Tanner and Jeffrey Wright as CIA agent Felix Leiter will all return too.

Joining the series are Oscar winner Rami Malek, Lashana Lynch (from Captain Marvel), Billy Magnussen, Ana De Armas, David Dencik and Dali Benssalah. We didn't get any details about the new characters, but Malek's video message left us in little doubt that he'll be Bond's nemesis in the movie.

"I promise you all I will be making sure Mr. Bond won't have an easy ride of it in this, his 25th outing," he said.

He also confirmed his villainous role to George Stephanopoulos on Thursday's Good Morning America.

The movie will be shot in Jamaica, Norway, Italy and London's Pinewood Studios.

True Detective director Cary Joji Fukunaga took the helm from Danny Boyle last September, and the movie is set for release on April 8, 2020. It'll be written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, Scott Z. Burns and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the creator of cult hits Killing Eve and Fleabag.

Bond 25 will also be the first in the series to be shot using Imax cameras, the company revealed in a tweet Thursday.
