is set to start filming in December and as that month is approaching more casting speculation has emerged. Already David Batista
(Guardians of the Galaxy
) and Léa Seydoux
(Blue is the Warmest Color
) have been linked to the long running series and now Austria's Christoph Waltz has been rumored to join the series.
The Daily Mail's film critic Baz Bamigboye broke the news via a tweet
and later elaborated in an article
on his newspaper's website. Bamigboye's source who has seen the screenplay reports that the character intended for Waltz is complex and is quoted saying:
‘It’s not immediately evident whether the part’s friend, or foe, or a bit of both,’
But the source also let it slip that the character is 'extremely cunning' and 'a nemesis of sorts'. Speculation is ripe that Waltz is set to play the villain and maybe even be Bond's most famous villain, Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Waltz is a talented actor and has won two Academy Awards for Best Supporting Actor for his roles in Inglourious Basterds
and Django Unchained
. He would be a great addition to the series.
Bamigdoye's tweet also reveals that Bond 24
is set to film in Mexico, Morocco, Austria and Italy.
Daniel Craig is set to return as the secret agent and Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris and Rory Kinnear will respire their roles. Skyfall
director Sam Mendes is set to return to the director's chair as well as writers Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan.
