Live from Pinewood Studios, Sam Mendes announced today that the 24th James Bond film will be called Spectre.
Daniel Craig heads-up a phenomenal cast that includes Christoph Waltz as the Bond villain, with Dave Bautista and Andrew Scott also joining the established cast. Léa Seydoux and Monica Bellucci were also announced as the Bond ladies.
Naomie Harris is officially returning as Miss Moneypenny, with Ralph Fiennes back as the new M, and Ben Wishaw is Q. As well as unveiling the cast, Mendes also introduced the world to the new Bond car, created in collaboration with Aston Martin – the DB10.
Filming will begin in four days at Pinewood Studios, with the seven month shoot also heading to London, Rome, Mexico City, Tangier, Morocco and Austria.
Skyfall broke records becoming the first film to gross over £100m at the UK box office. The title, Spectre, is straight out of Bond legend, referencing the fictional global terrorist organisation which featured in the first Bond film Dr. No. Sam Mendes returns in the director’s chair, so expect the same level of craftsmanship and style. In 2015, Bond 24 is the film to beat.
Spectre is set to be released on 23 October 2015.
