A new report in several UK tabloids (via Uproxx) have indicated that Christoph Waltz is reportedly on board to return to the James Bond franchise… on one condition.
SPOILERS AHEAD FOR “SPECTRE”
Waltz, who played the new incarnation of Bond’s nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld, will reportedly only return if Daniel Craig returns as James Bond. The reason? It said to be that of maintaining continuity, especially in the wake of the personal character reveals in “Spectre” which caused quite a bit of infuriation amongst fans.
Whether or not Daniel Craig returns to the franchise is still up in the air. Craig’s contract is up which means a new deal would have to be worked out. While the producers want him back, the actor has shown reluctance to return.
“Spectre” meanwhile is currently slated for home video release on February 9th.
