Bond screenwriter hints that Blofeld might return

09.22.2011

BOND 23 has been under wraps for a while now, so much so that it doesn't even have a title yet. When your movie makes the production of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES look like an open book, you know you're doing secrecy right.

But there might be a crack in the fortress where a little bit of info was let slip. WhatCulture was at a BAFTA even where BOND 23 screenwriter was asked about the film. Here's what they have to report:

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”.

An off comment is one thing, but saying it twice to reiterate the point? That seems a bit excessive unless it were true. So might we be seeing the head of SPECTRE return in the next film? It seems that could be the case. If so, who might they get to play such an important part? 

Extra Tidbit: I think at this point, most modern moviegoers would look at that picture and wonder why some old guy is dressed as Dr. Evil.

I really enjoyed the new direction they took with Casino Royale. And to be honest I'm going to have to watch QOS for a second time to give it a fair shake. I am glad the beloved series is moving forward again and am crossing my fingers they make bond more of a killer than he was in CR.

I like the way the latest Bond films have tried doing things their own way. They could introduce Blofeld as the villain controlling everything in the first two films, but would they really go down the 'bald guy stroking a cat' route? Not sure how well that would gel with the tone of the current movies. But you could certainly have Blofeld in name - just maybe not styled that way.

Boo on the "truthiness" of that Extra Tidbit...

I hate everything about Austin Powers, and was troubled about how right you were about the Tidbit...

They are doing a great job with the reboot Bond. Re-introducing Blofeld to this franchise would be a cool addition; and let's face it, Bond fans will have a blast.

I remember hearing too that supposedly (fingers crossed) that Mr. Connery himself would don that role...

What?!

I thought Bond killed Blofeld by dropping him down a smokestack from a helicopter at the beginning of "For Your Eyes Only"?

He's attached to the film, he often plays badguys, and sometimes he is bold...
So how about Raplh Fiennes as Blofeld?

I like the idea of Quantum being the new SPECTRE, but I don't want Blofeld to be the villain. I've liked these newer Bond films because they have various connections and nods to the old movies, but they are setting new ground. I liked the rumors that Rachel Weisz was attached as a villain or Ralph Fiennes.

YESSS!!!
About time. It's what all the last Bond movies were missing. I don't know about other people but I know it will get me and my dad back into the Bond franchise!

Also, bring back cooler gadgets. Seems to me like that is also lacking in the more recent Bonds.

Actually, the last two movies have been taken from the original books that Fleming wrote. They're much better than the gadget porn movies that came before it, since they actually have plots.

Actually, Quantum of Solace had nothing to do with Fleming (save the title). Which is why Casino Royale was awesome and Solace a stinking turd.

Actually I, personally, prefer my Bonds with more gadgets and cool band guys.
Always thought the best bonds were the ones from the 60s and 70s.

Matt Smith (the latest Dr. Who) would be a fairly creepy Blofeld. Especially with those weird eyebrows of his.

007 Craig + Mendes + Logan = Awesome

I'm also up for Quantum replacing the SPECTRE organization in the new bond movies. I didn't hate "QOS" as much as alot of Bond fans did. Hope that Craig's 3rd 007 is a kick-ass ride.
As for the casting of a possible *new* Blofeld: Anthony Hopkins would be a nice addition.

Nice. But, yeah, he may seem a bit too close to Dr. Evil if they give him the Donald Pleasance look.

I'm all up for Quantum "replacing" SPECTRE in the new bond movies. And also for the moviemakers to come up with a Blofeld-type character (don't use the old names, stick with the new).

Always liked the SPECTRE and Blofeld part of the Connery movies and was glad to see the franchise going in that kind of direction with Quantum. Hopefully they can bring the two together somehow (and not cheesily). As for who? off the top of my head/considering the known cast members right now- Ralph Fiennes (unless they confirmed he's not a villain of sorts).

They should have Bond find out the Quantom is actually a part of SPECTRE. I always saw them having Blofeld come back and at some point tell someone to have Dr. No begin his mission. Thereby linking up the movies. But yes, we need SPECTRE and Blofeld back.
