Only two days into 2016 and already the Bond 25 rumour mill is churning. ‘The Mirror‘ reports that Christoph Waltz has signed on for two more Bond films, but will only return as Bond’s arch nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld if Daniel Craig reprises the role of James Bond.
According to reports Bond bosses will only get Christoph if Daniel signs up for a fifth outing as the superspy.
“Christoph could make a brilliant ongoing man for Bond to battle like in the old days,” a source told the Daily Star.
“But the important clincher of it is that Blofeld can only work with Daniel back in the role to keep continuity.”
[…] Producer Michael G Wilson seemed to confirm they expect to have Craig for a fifth time, saying: “We think we’ve got him but we don’t have a contract.”
A Bond source said: “Daniel has been a huge success as 007 and is loved by fans so he isn’t going anywhere yet.
“The directors know they would be daft to replace him at a stage where he is so popular. It’s almost certain he will do one more outing as Bond.
