There is no official confirmation from Sony at this time, but the Daily Mail is claiming Django Unchained star Christoph Waltz has signed on as the main villain in Bond 24.

There is no further information about whom Christoph Waltz may be playing. It has been rumored that the Blofeld character and his villainous organization S.P.E.C.T.R.E. may feature into the storyline of Bond 24, with Sony winning back the rights almost exactly a year ago. That has never been confirmed by anyone associated with the project.

In October, it was reported by Latino Review that Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista had signed onto play the villainous henchmen Jinx in the film. That news, while seemingly confirmed by their sources at the time, has never been confirmed by Sony. Will we see Christoph Waltz and Dave Bautista working as a team? That certainly would be fun.

Skyfall director Sam Mendes is returning to direct a story that is said to continue the previous sequel. Daniel Craig is reprising his iconic role as 007, with Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw and Léa Seydoux all set to appear.

According to the Daily Mail, Bond 24 will shoot in early December in Mexico, Morocco, Austria, Italy and London. Now we just have to wait for some official confirmation from the studio.
