And oh god am I excited. Today the official James Bond twitter account live-tweeted the announcement made by Sony Pictures about the new Bond film.
Sam Mendes is returning to helm SPECTRE, along with Daniel Craig as 007, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, Ben Whishaw as Q and Ralph Fiennes as M. Huge announcements made today for the rest of the cast:
Léa Seydoux as Madeleine Swann
David Bautista as Mr Hinx
Andrew Scott as Denbigh
Christoph Waltz as Oberhauser
…and here’s my two cents. They announce SPECTRE, the return of the super villain organization group from the old Connery films and Christoph Waltz an incredible actor from Django Unchained and Inglorious Basterds and they make no mention of SPECTRE’s head, Ernst Starvo Blofeld. I think Sony and EON Productions is pulling a John Harrison with us and Waltz is Blofeld. Recently this year EON gained the rights back to Blofeld’s name after a lawsuit decades prior. It has to be this way, its the only way I see it. SPECTRE starts filming Monday and release date is holiday 2015.
