Christoph Waltz is still remaining tight-lipped about his role in the upcoming James Bond film, No Time To Die.
The coronavirus has sadly ground all of Hollywood to a halt with several films and television shows being pushed back and productions being suspended. The latest James Bond film, No Time to Die, was one of the first to do so as concerns over the pandemic became more serious. Unfortunately, this also means that Christoph Waltz has to remain quiet about his role in the upcoming film.
In the films, Christoph Waltz plays the rebooted version of Ernst Stavro Blofeld. First appearing in Spectre, Christoph Waltz’s version of Blofeld was eventually revealed to be the adopted brother of James Bond and many of his actions were motivated by a desire to harm him. His character ultimately survived the events of Spectre but not without being heavily scarred and imprisoned.
Christoph Waltz is set to reprise the role for the upcoming James Bond film, No Time To Die. How big of a role he will play in the film has been called into question, however, given that the film seems to be pushing Rami Malek’s Safin as the principal antagonist of the film. During a recent interview with Collider, Christoph Waltz was asked if he could reveal anything more about the character in No Time To Die. The actor, however, refused to reveal any more details about the film:
You’ll see when you see it. [Laughs] You’ll see what it is when you see it. It would’ve been out by now had it not been for the virus. So they pushed it into November. I was disappointed too because I didn’t want to dodge questions. But we’ll see. No, it was necessary. It was great and let’s talk again about it after you’ve seen it.

Here is the official synopsis for Daniel Craig’s No Time to Die:
Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga from a script co-written by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, No Time to Die stars Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Lea Seydoux, Rory Kinnear, Jeffrey Wright, Rami Malek, Ana de Armas, Lashana Lynch, Billy Magnussen, David Dencik and Dali Benssalah.
No Time To Die will be released in theaters on November 25, 2020.
