Bond 24 Sets Christoph Waltz as Villain

According to The Daily Mail columnist Baz Bamigboye, two-time Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz is set to play the antagonist in Sam Mendes’ still-untitled Bond 24. There, he joins Daniel Craig, Léa Seydoux, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw and Dave Bautista.

The new film, set for release on November 6, 2015, will again be directed by Mendes (Skyfall). Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson will produce.

Waltz, who took home Oscars for his performances in both Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained, can next be seen in Horrible Bosses 2 before starring with Amy Adams in Tim Burton’s Big Eyes. He’s also set to star opposite Alexander Skarsgard in 2016’s Tarzan, arriving from Warner Bros. and four-time Harry Potter helmer David Yates.
