A live announcement from Pinewood Studios this morning revealed the title of the much anticipated Bond 24 due out next October.
SPECTRE will see Daniel Craig reprise his role as 007, which also features a host of new names joining the production set to start filming from Monday.
Director Sam Mendes returns giving us hope that SPECTRE will be just as good, if not better, than the box office breaking Skyfall.
Casting wise, Naomie Harris will be Moneypenny, Ben Whishaw is Q, Rory Kinnear is back as Tanner and Ralph Fiennes steps into the role vacated by Dame Judy Dench as the new M.
There are of course a host of new characters, and these include; Andrew Scott, who is playing Denby, a member of the MI6 home team.
No Bond film would be complete without its glamorous ladies and Lea Seydoux (Blue Is The Warmest Colour) is playing Madeleine Swann while Monica Bellucci is Lucia Sciarra.
There was much speculation this outing would feature James Bond’s greatest nemesis Ernst Blofeld, and Oscar winner Christoph Waltz will play villain Oberhauser.
Its unclear at this stage if he will eventually end up as Blofeld complete with while cat and swivel chair, we’ll just have to wait and see.
Dave Bautista star of Guardians Of The Galaxy will play henchman Hinx, so expect a fierce mismatch for James Bond to deal with at some point.
James Bond’s motor has also been upgraded and it was revealed he will be driving an Aston Martin DB10 in the film. No doubt equipped with a whole host of gadgets courtesy of Q branch.
Once filming starts they’ll be more news about plot, additional cast and perhaps a teasing picture or two from on the set. Either way it’s something to look forward to next year.
A very cool poster has also been released which you can see below. This features a bullet hole through glass that appears to be shaped like an octopus, which is SPECTRE’s logo.
SPECTRE will be released in cinemas in October 2015.
