Christoph Waltz Might Be Playing This Classic James Bond Villain, Here's Why
So the rumor that caught fire last week was that two time Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz has signed on for a mysterious role in Bond 24. So naturally, people think that his role is that of the film's latest villain. Waltz made his first great impression as an antagonist, and a brilliant one at that. This just makes us think that if Waltz is going to be a baddie in the Bond franchise, he's probably going to be the greatest baddie of all: Ernst Stavro Blofeld.

Is Christoph Waltz The Next Great Bond Villain?
It would appear that the filmmakers behind the James Bond franchise have begun using the Best Supporting Actor Oscar winner pool of the last few years to help them find an appropriate villain. For Skyfall, Sam Mendes turned to Javier Bardem - who took home the aforementioned prize for his turn in the Coen brothers' No Country For Old Men - and now it's being reported that the upcoming Bond 24 is looking to bring on two-time Academy Award winner Christopher Waltz to square off against 007.

Bond 24 Villain May Be Played By This Guardians Of The Galaxy Star
After years of success in the wrestling industry, Dave Bautista is now starting to find some extreme success in Hollywood. This past summer he was part of the ensemble that made up James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy - playing Drax The Destroyer and doing so tremendously well. Obviously having an important role in the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is pretty huge, but now rumors say that Bautista may have a part in one of the biggest movie franchises of all time.

James Bond Will Fall For This Beautiful Woman In Bond 24
The Bond girl for the 24th installment has been announced, and Lea Seydoux will be 007’s latest sparring partner when the film is released in 2015. Seydoux has previously appeared in the likes of Midnight In Paris and Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, but her most infamous portrayal came in the controversial, Blue Is The Warmest Color.

James Bond Will Head To These Three Countries In Bond 24
In every James Bond movie, there are always a couple of exotic locations that 007 whisks away to. After all, international security can't be completely served if you're just sitting at a desk filing paperwork in England - at least not the type of international security Bond handles. Shooting locations are important to any Bond film because not only does this give us some sort of hint as to where the threat facing the world is coming from, it also hints at the usually amazing set pieces that a good James Bond adventure is based around.

Casting has begun for an assassin, with a focus on “someone extremely physically fit and over 6' 2".” The person is said to have “several altercations with Daniel Craig's 007 throughout the film,” and also will be featured in a driving sequence.

British Crooner Sam Smith Is The Rumored Choice To Sing The Next James Bond Theme
No one would doubt that the James Bond films aren't huge everywhere: the last one, Skyfall, collected $1.1 billion dollars worldwide - over $300 million of that coming from America. But in England, they're absolutely NUTS for Agent 007, to the point where stories involving the new movie (slated for release November 6th, 2015) take on an almost fanatical level of rumor and conjecture. This happens particularly often in regards to the fabled "Bond theme." Who will be singing it this time for Bond 24?

James Bond 24 Orders Rewrites, Which Delays Production
The problem, according to the Daily Mail, is that these rewrites are going to cause a significant delay in the production, or, as a source calls it, “polite turmoil” behind the scenes. The production on Bond 24 now won’t begin until December, “a few months later then they wanted” according to the source.

How Daniel Craig Unknowingly Inspired Sam Mendes To Return For Bond 24
Before Skyfall, Sam Mendes was a director known for dour, character centered pieces that resonated with humanity. That's not the type of director that screams “James Bond ready”, but Mendes proved that the contrary was true as his finished product went on to become one of the best loved Bond films in the modern era.

Bond 24 To Have Strong Ties To Skyfall
The James Bond franchise isn't really one known for continuity, with most of the films in the series largely operating as individual stories, but that's something that has changed greatly in the Daniel Craig era. Director Sam Mendes has admitted that a great deal of the next 007 adventure, now simply known as Bond 24, will tie back to what we saw happen to the super spy in Skyfall.

Bond 24 Looking At Chiwetel Ejiofor To Play The Villain
Whoever ends up playing the next 007 villain in Sam Mendes' untitled Bond 24 has some serious shoes to fill. In his performance as the ex-MI6 terrorist Silva, Javier Bardem created not only an amazing antagonist, but one of the greatest baddies in the history of the franchise.

The Next James Bond Film Will Begin Shooting In October
For a moment, I forgot that Ralph Fiennes was a part of the updated James Bond franchise. No disrespect to the amazing Oscar nominee, but when we think of Bond, we immediately think about Daniel Craig (the current 007), and maybe whichever actor is circling the role of “Bond Villain,” but not the man who has been tapped to replace Dame Judi Dench in the long-running spy franchise.

Skyfall Cinematographer Roger Deakins Won't Be Back For Bond 24
As I explained in my review released just prior to the movie hitting theaters back in 2012, Sam Mendes' Skyfall is a great film for many, many reasons. The story does fascinating things with the James Bond character, puts the franchise in an interesting modern context, and features one of the greatest Bond villains ever in Javier Bardem's Silva. Perhaps its greatest asset, though, is the cinematography of genius Roger Deakins.

Sam Mendes Still In Negotiations For Bond 24
So here's a twist. Sam Mendes had seemed officially, totally out of the running to direct the next James Bond movie, committing himself to theater projects like Charlie and the Chocoalte Factory and King Lear. But Skyfall made $1 billion-- yes, $1 billion-- and producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson weren't going to take his rejection that easily

Penelope Cruz Rumored To Play The Next Bond Girl
If rumors are to believed, it seems that the producers of the long-running James Bond franchise loved Javier Bardem's performance as the villainous Silva in Sam Mendes' Skyfall so much that they're even game to cast people related to him in the upcoming sequel. Like, for example, Bardem's wife.

Sam Mendes May Come Back For Bond 24 After All
Just a short while ago we reported that Eon and Sony were looking at directors like Nicolas Winding Refn, Ang Lee, Shane Black, David Yates and Tom Hooper as potential helmers of the untitled Bond 24, but suddenly it appears that Mendes is actually back in the running in a big way.

Christopher Nolan Asked To Direct The Next James Bond Film
Most of us would say that Inception is the closest thing we'd ever see to a Christopher Nolan James Bond movie, but in fact the real deal might but happening too. The Daily Mail is reporting on "informal talks" between Nolan and Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson about Nolan taking over Bond 24.

James Bond Producers Say They Will Get Sam Mendes Back
The statistics don't lie: most filmmakers who direct James Bond movies eventually find their way back for another 007 adventure. There have been 23 Bond movies made in the last 50 years, but all of the titles come from only 11 different names...

Sam Mendes Won't Direct Bond 24
Daniel Craig’s James Bond needs continuity. The character – nay, the entire franchise – was redeemed when Sam Mendes took over for Skyfall, prompting most Bond fans to lobby for the American Beauty director to return for the next film, at least. Sadly, it isn’t happening.

The Next Two Bond Movies Will Be Linked Stories, And John Logan Is Writing Them Now
It was just earlier today that we learned Skyfall writer John Logan would return for the next James Bond adventure, and now there are already more details coming forward. Now they're not plot details--nobody would be insane enough to leak those yet-- but there is a fascinating hint at where the franchise might go from here, including a return to a strategy first used in Quantum of Solace

Bond 24 Already Being Written By John Logan
The news that Logan is back on board is an excellent sign we'll be see Bond again much sooner. Now I'm hoping his return means that Sam Mendes may also consider another go-round. He's said in interviews that he probably won't do another Bond film, and it's been nearly 25 years since any director actually repeated (that'd be John Glen, who directed all five 1980s Bond films)

Benedict Cumberbatch Rumored To Be Next Bond Villain
The Daily Express reports that Cumberbatch is nearly set to be the next villain to tangle with James Bond for 2014 entry to the long-running franchise. Should this prove true, he'd join the ranks of Gert Fröbe, Telly Savalas, Christopher Lee, Mads Mikkelsen, and Javier Bardem.
