Christoph Waltz to reprise Blofeld role?

British broadsheet The Independent is reporting that Christoph Waltz is contracted to return as Ernst Stravro Blofeld in two more Bond films under one condition.

Bond 25

The article quites the usual unnamed sources speaking to The Star, saying Waltz will return in Bond 25 and Bond 26 provided Daniel Craig returns as 007.

While The Star is hardly a reliable source, there have been previous rumours that several SPECTRE actors signed multi-film contracts. And from the ending of the latest Bond film, it seems that the pre-title sequence could well see the brief reappearance of Léa Seydoux as Dr Madeline Swann.

It’s too early to draw any firm conclusions at the moment though and we may not know for sure until the film enters production, presumably at the end of 2017 for release in 2018.

    It will be great for Christoph Waltz to do Blofield instead of recast like what happen Sean Connery & George Lazenby era. It should be Christoph Waltz all the way in next film to future film as Blofield. I glad he also want Daniel Craig to return as 007 for couple times. Daniel Craig is my third favourite Bond.
