BOND 23 (News Update)

  • BOND 23

Ernst Stavro Blofeld
All of a sudden Bond seems that he will be a little more of the traditional Bond,, as the rumor mill starts going crazy with Bond 23 screenwriter John Logan making some curious remarks at a BAFTA Screenwriters lecture Tuesday. /Film points out this article at WhatCulture! that said:

"Rather interestingly, during the talk last night Logan was reminded by an audience member of a quote that he said some ten years ago that, in his opinion, 'Bond should always fight Blofeld'. When pressed on this he gave a wry smile and said 'Bond should always fight Blofeld'."

Yes, supervillain Ernst Stavro Blofeld, the head of SPECTRE (SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion) previously played by the likes of Donald Pleasence, Telly Savalas, Charles Gray and Max Von Sydow.

Blofeld has been rumored as returning for Bond 23 for awhile, with actors such as Michael Sheen and Anthony Hopkins linked with the role. But with Javier Bardem and Ralph Fiennes reportedly set for Bond 23, could one of them be the new Blofeld? We shall see.
