James Bond Producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli have revealed the name for the 24th James Bond adventure — drumroll please — “SPECTRE.”
The film, from Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment, is directed by Sam Mendes and will see the return of Daniel Craig in his fourth outing as the iconic spy created by Ian Fleming with the code moniker of James Bond 007.
Returning with Craig are Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw is new Q and Rory Kinnear. Guest stars include Christoph Waltz, Léa Seydoux, Dave Bautista, Monica Bellucci and Andrew Scott.
“SPECTRE” will see a sleek new Aston Martin for Bond. The DB10 was created exclusively for the film (See the attached video).
Written by John Logan, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, the story involves a cryptic message from Bond’s past that sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. 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.”
Principal photography begins Monday, December 8 at Pinewood Studios, and on location in London, Mexico City, Rome and Tangier and Erfoud, in Morocco. Bond will return to the snow once again, this time in Sölden, along with other Austrian locations, Obertilliach, and Lake Altaussee.
Commenting on the announcement, Wilson and Broccoli said, “We’re excited to announce Daniel’s fourth installment in the series and thrilled that Sam has taken on the challenge of following on the success of “SKYFALL” with ‘SPECTRE’.”
“SPECTRE” is set for global release on November 6, 2015.
