New Bond Film Titled SPECTRE, SHERLOCK Star Joins Cast

An event hosted by Sony Pictures and MGM at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, England and live-streamed on December 4, 2014 revealed that the 24th James Bond film will be titled Spectre. The cast was also formally unveiled, with Sherlock star Andrew Scott introduced as MI6 operative Denbigh.

This will be Daniel Craig’s fourth film as James Bond, with director Sam Mendes also poised to return after the previous installment, 2012’s Skyfall. Guardians Of The Galaxy‘s Dave Bautista was revealed as playing henchman Mr. Hinx. Two-time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) was revealed as playing a character called Oberhauser, the name of Bond’s former ski instructor. However, speculation persists that Waltz will really be playing famed Bond villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld.

SPECTRE–which stands for Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion–was the enemy in the classic Bond films of the 1960s, with Blofeld as the organization’s “Number One.”
