He added: “When a visitor spotted him, Waltz insisted, ‘You haven’t seen me.’”
And now The Playlist’s Bond sources have disclosed new information on Blofeld’s involvement in Bond 25.
After all, if Rami Malek is the main villain, how does the head of Spectre come into all this?
Well, allegedly Blofeld will only cameo in a Silence of the Lambs style appearance. What they mean by this is a visit to evil genius in prison, like Clarice Starling speaking with Dr Hannibal Lecter.
Blofeld was arrested on Westminster Bridge at the end of Spectre and apparently, Léa Seydoux’s Madeleine Swann will visit him in prison.
Allegedly the purpose of this meeting is to “mine him for information about Malek’s sadistic character.”
The outlet added: “I don’t really expect for Waltz to have as significant a role as last time, he’ll likely take a back seat to the focus on Malek.”
Meanwhile, Bond 25’s opening scene may have leaked.
MI6 HQ reports that Bond 25’s opening sequence before the traditional opening credits will be shot in Matera, southern Italy.
Allegedly, Seydoux will return as Madeleine Swann “for the action-packed car chase, that takes place after 007 pays tribute to an old flame.”
Bond was last seen quitting MI6 and driving off into the sunset with Swann at the end of Spectre.
Bond 25 will be released in UK cinemas on April 3, 2020.
