SPECTRE Are at It Again

What happened at Skyfall is going to loom large over Bond 24.

Or so it would seem since it was announced super-early this morning that the upcoming follow-up to the 2012 hit Skyfall will be titled SPECTRE.

Ahh. And, yes...SPECTRE, as in SPECTRE, the Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge, and Extortion organization!

As previously reported, Sam Mendes will be back at the helm, and Daniel Craig, of course, will once again suit up as James Bond.

Craig will be joined by his Skyfall co-stars Ralph Fiennes (the new M), Naomie Harris, and Ben Whishaw, while joining the fun of the latest 007 adventure will be Monica Bellucci (in the role that was rumored for Penélope Cruz, perhaps?), Léa Seydoux (Blue Is the Warmest Color), David Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy), and Christoph Waltz as a villain who may reveal himself to be...Blofeld (for now the Horrible Bosses 2’s stars character is only known as Oberhauser – which still could be a red herring, but not quite on the level of Star Trek Into Darkness Khangate).

Per Bond tradition, SPECTRE will be a world-crisscrossing affair: The film will be shot along London, Rome, Mexico City, Tangier, Erfoud, and the Austrian Alps. Everyone will begin reporting for duty as early as next Monday.

Oh, and in case you are into cars and stuff, James Bond will drive the Aston Martin DB10 in the film (the ride was especially designed for the production).

Also, if you are into watching a bit of the title sequence for the film (yes, the powers that be showed that with their announcement), well, here it is:

SPECTRE is due out next Nov. 6.
