In the build up to the release of Spectre, there was a lot of speculation over the future of Daniel Craig as James Bond, with Craig himself indicating that he could be ready to retire his licence to kill, and other reports suggesting that he’d be back for one more outing.
Well, according to “sources” for The Daily Star (so get your pinch of salt at the ready), Christoph Waltz has signed up to reprise the role of Blofeld for two more Bond movies, but will only do so if Craig continues in the role of 007.
“Christoph could make a brilliant ongoing man for Bond to battle like in the old days,” states the tabloid’s source. “But the important clincher of it is that Blofeld can only work with Daniel back in the role to keep continuity.”
Spectre sees Sam Mendes (Skyfall) directing Bond veterans Daniel Craig as James Bond, Rory Kinnear as Tanner, Ben Whishaw as Q, Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny, Ralph Fiennes as M and Jesper Christensen as Mr. White, alongside franchise newcomers Andrew Scott (Pride) as Denbigh, Lea Seydoux (Blue is the Warmest Colour) as Madeleine Swann, Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy) as Mr. Hinx, Monica Bellucci (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice) as Lucia Sciarra, Stephanie Sigman (The Bridge) as Estrella and Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) as Blofeld.
