Christoph Waltz to play Blofeld

About a month ago it was rumoured that Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) was going to play the villain in Bond 24.
It was confirmed today that he will be playing the classic Bond villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld.

The character has been held up by legal battles for decades. But, last year MGM settled a lawsuit with writer Kevin McClory regarding the rights to SPECTRE and the character of Blofeld.

He’s probably the most iconic villain in the Bond franchise, so it would make sense for MGM to want him back.
I love Christoph Waltz and I can’t wait to see what he does with the role.

Shooting starts in January and it will be released on November 6th, 2015. The movie is again directed by Sam Mendes.
