Shatterhand: Next James Bond film's working title revealed

Then again, Octopussy was a light comedy - Bond goes disguised as a circus clown at one point - and given than Bond 25 is a Daniel Craig Bond, and his movies tend to be a bit more serious and grim, I have a hunch the film will arrive in theaters with a different title.

Industry publication Production Weekly has included a listing in its 21 February newsletter for "Bond 25 w/t Shatterhand", with shooting due to start at Pinewood studios on 6 April. Ernst Stavro Blofeld was recently portrayed by actor Christoph Waltz in 2015's Spectre and the villain evaded death at the end of the film.

For those who aren't too familiar with Ian Fleming's You Only Live Twice novel, Dr. Shatterhand is actually an alias of the villainous Blofeld.

The working title was reported by a trade magazine, and could hold a clue as to the setting of the film, which will be directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga. Even confirmed titles aren't immutable: Moonraker made a lie of the The Spy Who Loved Me when James Bond did not in fact return in For Your Eyes Only, while Licence To Kill was known as Licence Revoked until test screenings showed that United States audiences associated the phrase with a particularly bad day at the DMV. Obviously Nyong'o has Jordan Peele's Us and Star Wars Episode IX: No Title Yet, Either in the can, but might not be able to find time for Bond now that the all-female spy thriller 355 (in which Jessica Chastain is going to fight Marion Cottilard on motorbikes, c'mon!) looks like it's gearing up for production. Craig returned for three more movies after Casino Royale, with Skyfall becoming one of the franchise's most successful films.

LeBron James, Brandon Ingram Lead 19-Point Comeback Against Rockets
The Rockets blew a 19-point lead in the second half against the Lakers, suffering their third loss in four games. Houston centre Clint Capela returned to the lineup for the first time since January 13 and had a double-double.

Do you think Blofeld could be making a return in the next James Bond movie? It appears to confirm longstanding rumours that Shatterhand is a contender for Bond 25's official title. Share your thoughts below!

Meanwhile, it was previously revealed that Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, and Lea Seydoux will all return for the latest instalment.

Bond 25 is scheduled to be released on April 8, 2020.

The new James Bond film will be called "Shatterhand".
