London — The next James Bond will have a title that nods to the series' past: SPECTRE.
Director Sam Mendes announced the title Thursday, along with the identity of several new cast members and a new version of Bond's iconic Aston Martin car.
Academy Award-winning Austrian actor Christoph Waltz is joining the cast, while Andrew Scott — Moriarty from BBC series "Sherlock" — will play a government official. Lea Seydoux and Monica Bellucci are the new Bond girls.
Daniel Craig will play Bond for a fourth time and Mendes returns as director after 2012's Skyfall. Skyfall was the most successful Bond film yet, taking more than $1.1 billion at the global box office.
SPECTRE was the terrorist organization headed by Ernst Blofeld in early Bond films starting with Dr. No.
