Bond 24 revealed: ‘Spectre’

Details of the 24th James Bond movie were announced today at the franchise home in London’s Pinewood Studios: The new movie will be called “Spectre,” and will feature recurring characters Daniel Craig (Bond), Naomie Harris (Miss Moneypenny), Ben Whishaw (Q), and Ralph Fiennes (Mallory), all of whom appeared in the previous (and jolly good) Bond film “Skyfall.” Joining the cast will be Christoph Waltz, Lea Seydoux, Dave Bautista, Andrew Scott and Monica Bellucci. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Waltz will be playing “Hannes Oberhauser, a character who was Bond’s ski instructor and considered his second father,” which is quite possibly the most Bond-ian thing I’ve ever heard. The “Skyfall” team of director Sam Mendes and writers John Logan, Neil Purvis and Rob Wade are also returning, and the latest Bond car will be theĀ Aston Martin DB10. Me, I just want to hear the song. (And I’ll miss Judi Dench. Sigh.)
