German-Austrian actor Christoph Waltz has been officially confirmed to play James Bond's evil opponent in the movie, slated for November 2015.

Waltz has form for playing antagonists, with a memorable performance as SS Colonel Hans Landa in the Quentin Tarantino-directed 'Inglorious Basterds' earning him both an Oscar and a Cannes Best Actor Award.

Director Sam Mendes confirmed the cast list for the latest installment in the Bond franchise at a press event at London's Pinewood Studios on Thursday, putting an end to weeks of speculation.

The movie will be the 24th featuring the British super-spy and once again stars Daniel Craig in the leading role.

Little is known of the plot of the movie, although the producers have said that filming will take place in London, Rome, Tangiers, Mexico City and Austria.

Filming will start on Monday December 8th.
