London: Sir Anthony Hopkins is reportedly close to signing a deal to become ‘Bond’ villain.

“The only stumbling block seems to be the number of films he is signing up for,” the Sun quoted a source as saying.

“There is a chance the character they want him to play could become a regular feature, like Blofeld back in the day.”

The best Bond movies have a great villain and Daniel Craig could meet his match in his third outing as 007 with Hopkins.
