And the cast of “SPECTRE”, which marks the 24th Bond movie overall in it’s 50+ year history, was also formally announced…
Glad to see Daniel Craig continue in the James Bond role. Joining Craig in this upcoming film are Bond Girls Naomie Harris, Léa Seydoux, and Monica Bellucci (who at the age of 50, is the oldest ever to play a Bond Girl) along with Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz (who you’ll see in “Big Eyes” later this month). Ralph Fiennes also returns.
Why “SPECTRE”? TIME magazine spells it out for us:
Spectre (the British spelling for specter, meaning ghost) was originally conceived by Bond novelist Ian Fleming in 1959 for the novel Thunderball as a villainous organization that could pose a threat to the British government even as the Cold War ended and political alliances shifted. (A savvy move: 56 years later, Spectre still lives on.)
Here’s the formal announcement by Pinewood Studios, which starts off with a nice tribute to Daniel Craig’s tenure as James Bond:
Filming starts on Monday. “SPECTRE” opens in theaters on November 6, 2015. You can catch more Bond news at the official 007 webpage here.
