James Bond Will Return In SPECTRE – Daniel Craig Is 007, Christoph Waltz as Oberhauser
On Thursday, Director Sam Mendes dramatically revealed to a global audience the name of the 24th BOND film – SPECTRE.
Joining Daniel Craig (Ian Fleming’s James Bond), Ralph Fiennes (M), Ben Whishaw (Q), Naomie Harris (Miss Moneypenny) and Rory Kinnear (Tanner) are Léa Seydoux as Madeleine Swann, Monica Bellucci as Lucia Sciarra, David Bautista as Mr Hinx, Andrew Scott as Denbigh and Christoph Waltz as Oberhauser.
A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.
Also unveiled was the new Aston Martin DB10.
The film will be released November 6, 2015.

Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Sony Pictures Entertainment presented a live announcement and photo call from the 007 Stage at Pinewood Studios.
Principal photography begins on Monday, December 8th with shooting taking place over the next seven months at Pinewood London, Mexico City, Rome, Tangier & Erfoud, Morocco, Sölden, Obertilliach and Lake Altausee, Austria.
SPECTRE writers are John Logan, Neil Purvis and Rob Wade.
The crew is Director of Photography Hoyte Van Hoytema, Editor Lee Smith, Costume Designer Jany Temime, Stunt Coordinator Gary Powell, 2nd Unit Director Alexander Witt, SFX Supervisor Chris Corbould, VFX Supervisor Steve Begg, Production Designer Dennis Gassner and Composer Thomas Newman.
The announcement was streamed live at www.007.com.
The world famous 007 stage at Pinewood was built in 1976 for the Bond movie The Spy Who Loved Me. After a search across Europe, the Bond producers failed to find a stage large enough to house the three submarines the scene required, so they decided to build a new stage and tank specifically for that film.
The 007 stage remains one of the largest sound stages in the world. James Bond is the longest running, and one of the most successful franchises of all time, with twenty-three films produced and the twenty-fourth about to go in production. Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli succeeded Albert R ‘Cubby’ Broccoli and have produced the past seven Bond films together, including the highly successful, Casino Royale, Quantum Of Solace and Skyfall.
All of the James Bond films have been made in collaboration with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios or United Artists, its predecessor.
