Another day, another seemingly vital piece of information about an in-development Sony film that is leaked due to the ongoing hack. This one has to do with Spectre, Sam Mendes’ next chapter in the 007 saga, and it pertains to the adversaries standing in Daneil Craig’s path this time out. Read on if you don’t mind being a little bit spoiled on the next James Bond adventure.

Vulture has the Spectre scoop, confirming that Ernst Stavro Blofeld indeed will be the chief villain in the next James Bond movie (though they go so far as to say that Christoph Waltz has NOT been confirmed to be playing the villain just yet. If we had to guess, we’d say you can pencil Waltz’s name next to Blofeld on the 007 roster.) In addition to Blofeld, the emails cited by Vulture say that Bond will stare down a "lesbian bad lady." Get me Pussy Galore on the line, immediately!



All of a sudden, Spectre is in danger of getting a little crowded. During the announcement of the next film’s title and cast, it was confirmed that Monica Bellucci, Lea Seydoux and Dave Bautista would be joining Waltz and Craig. This, in addition to returning Skyfall cast members Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris. And now we’ll have a lesbian sidekick to deal with as well as Blofeld? Vulture also throws out that Andrew Scott will be playing the character "C" in the movie, a new Bond boss at MI6.

Part of the reason why Skyfall was such a success, in my opinion, was that there was one crucial villain, who was given plenty of time to cast his shadow over James Bond. It helped that he was masterfully played by the always outstanding Javier Bardem:



But the beauty of Spectre, so far, is that the cast added to Sam Mendes ensemble is top shelf, and even if we have to deal with a little bit of overcrowding, then tone of the Daniel Craig-era Bond films has been (outside of Quantum of Solace) in tune. Spectre is aiming for a November 6, 2015 release date. More on the James Bond sequel as it develops.
