Two-time Academy award winner Christoph Waltz has joined the cast of Sam Mendes Untitled James Bond 24 according to Daily Mail reports (…yes, that awful rag of a paper). Filming is slated to commence at the beginning of next month and it’s unknown whether Waltz will be playing a friend, foe, or a bit of both. But, according to the Daily Mail’s source – someone who has knowledge of the screenplay – Waltz has bagged an important and significant role in the film

All the cast and crew will meet for a script read in roughly three weeks time with the new addition on board, and Waltz has already met up with Daniel Craig, a.k.a. 007, as well as the producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson. Waltz will join a supporting cast that includes Skyfall alums Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, and Rory Kinnear. Locations being used for the film are said to include Mexico, Austria, Morocco, Italy and London. Waltz has played some superb antagonists in movies with a standout performance as The Jew Hunter in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds and he was superb in last years Django Unchained, both of which won him Oscars for his performances.
