Bond 25 will reportedly see Christoph Waltz back as Blofeld


It sounds like Christoph Waltz is back to reprise his role as Franz Oberhauser, aka Ernst Stavro Blofeld, for Bond 25, according an eye witness report. When caught by the visitor, Waltz apparently told them, "You haven't seen me".

At this time, it's unclear what role Blofeld will play in the story, given the fact that he was captured and jailed by James at the end of the last movie.

In related news, the production's official social channels posted a photo earlier today of another location where filming is taking place - Hammersmith Bridge on the River Thames in west London.

In the new film, Bond is living a tranquil retirement life in Jamaica - one that's interrupted when U.S. agent Felix Leiter shows up and asks for help to rescue a kidnapped scientist which puts Bond on the trail of a mysterious villain armed with risky new technology.

It's unclear how much of a role Waltz's Blofeld will have in Bond 25.

"The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with unsafe new technology".

Aside from Craig and Waltz, Ralph Fiennes (M), Léa Seydoux (Madeleine Swann), Naomie Harris (Eve Moneypenny), Rory Kinnear (Bill Tanner), and Ben Whishaw (Q) are also returning from previous installments.

In the film, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. New cast members confirmed for the film include Dali Benssalah, Billy Magnussen, Ana De Arma, David Dencik, Lashana Lynch, and Rami Malek.

Bond 25, which does not yet have an official title, is now filming in London.

The new James Bond movie is expected to be in the cinemas in Ireland on April 3 2020.
