Co-writer on the new James Bond adventure, John Logan, have left Bond fans wondering if 007 will be facing off against his arch enemy from the 1960s: Ernst Stavro Blofeld.
According to Latino Review, it was when Logan was speaking at the BAFTA Screenwriters lecture that the scribe was asked about Blofeld by one member of the audience.
With a smile he said: ”Bond should always fight Blofeld.”
Logan also let slip that, unlike many blockbusters, the Bond 23 schedule has 2 weeks of rehearsal to accommodate.
Before Bond 23 was in production, rumors hit the media that Michael Sheen would play the arch villain. These were dispelled by the actor on a talk show in April this year.
