Christoph Waltz will play the main villain in the upcoming Bond 24, Waltz will play Bond’s nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld. After seeing him in Inglourious Basterds, I became the biggest fan of his work and he didn’t disappoint me since.
MGM had settled with writer Kevin McClory regarding the rights to the Blofeld character and the infamous SPECTRE organization, which sparked rumors they could appear in future films, and now it appears that could be a reality. Blofeld has been heard or seen in six of the previous James Bond films and was previously played by Donald Pleasence, Telly Savalas and Charles Gray.
The Bond 24 will see Waltz join Daniel Craig, Léa Seydoux, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw and Dave Bautista. Sam Mendes returns to direct the film, which is produced by Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson.
Release Date November 6, 2015.
