Bond 24: Meet the new cast of Spectre

4 December 2014 11:22 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

2012's Skyfall was one of the most acclaimed Bond chapters in history, and when director Sam Mendes and screenwriter John Logan both confirmed their returns for Bond 24, you could almost hear the collective sigh of relief among 007 fans and movie buffs alike.

At Pinewood Studios this morning (December 4), Mendes announced five new cast members for Bond 24, aka Spectre, who will join Daniel Craig, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Rory Kinnear.

Below, Digital Spy rounds up some key facts about the actors, and what little we know about their respective characters.

Christoph Waltz as Oberhauser

While he's probably the biggest name on this list, the Austrian-born Waltz was more or less unknown to English-speaking audiences until 2009, when he starred in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds.

His performance as the charismatic, sociopathic SS agent Hans Landa (aka 'The Jew Hunter') earned him an Oscar and a tidal wave of offers from Hollywood. »

Sony Pictures, MGM Studios, and Eon Productions have announced highly anticipated details about the 24th James Bond movie. They made the announcement from the Bond sound stage at Pinewood Studios. The movie will be called Spectre, a teaser poster was released, and you will find more information regarding the Sam Mendes directed film below thanks to the official James Bond Twitter account that live-tweeted the big event announcement.

4 December 2014 4:22 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Minutes ago, director Sam Mendes announced that the new James Bond film title will be "Spectre". The announcement was made at the legendary "home" of the 007 franchise, Pinewood Studios on the Albert R. Broccoli 007 Stage.  Christoph Waltz was confirmed as the new villain. His character's name was not given, but the title "Spectre" gives credence to rumors that he will be playing the arch villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld, who has not officially appeared in an Eon Bond film since Charles Gray played him opposite Sean Connery in the 1971 film "Diamonds Are Forever".

Returning cast members include Ralph Finnes, Naomi Harris, Ben Wishaw and Rory Kinnear. The writing team from "Skyfall"- John Logan, Neal Purvis and Rob Wade- is also returning. 

Bond's new car was also unveiled: the new Aston Martin DB10.

The film is scheduled for release in October 2015.   »

Bond 24 announces its official title and cast

4 December 2014 3:43 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Thursday morning from the 007 stage at Pinewood Studios, director Sam Mendes officially revealed the title of the 24th installment to the James Bond franchise: Spectre.

 

The title comes from one of the Bond franchise’s long standing secret organizations, standing for “Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion.” Following Skyfall and Casino Royale, its clear that gone are the days when you could take the words, “Love”, “Kill”, “Tomorrow”, “Eyes”, “Days” and “Gun” and get a plausible title for a James Bond movie.

In addition to the title, Mendes confirmed the complete cast, which now includes the previously reported Christoph Waltz and Lea Seydoux, as well as Monica Bellucci, Andrew Scott and Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Dave Bautista as “Mr. Hinx”, which has to be the campiest and likely most badass villain to come out of this franchise in a long time. The cast of characters that made »

'Bond 24' is officially titled 'Spectre': Who's in the cast?

4 December 2014 2:50 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are not many things that would have me out of bed and waiting for them at 3:00 in the morning, but I love the Daniel Craig era of James Bond, and I'm ready for the follow-up to "Skyfall." Sony's done a tremendous job of treating James Bond like the crown jewel of the company, and they're treating this next movie like a major event. My guess is that we're not going to have too many more films with Craig playing the role, so I want each one to be special at this point. The live-stream began about ten minutes out from the actual event, and so far it's just Bond themes, but as the details are announced, we'll update right here and then discuss the title once the event's done. Looks like they're making the announcements at the Bond Stage at Pinewood. Fitting. I've been outside that stage, but never inside it. »

Christoph Waltz to Play Ernst Stavro Blofeld in Bond 24

24 November 2014 2:43 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A couple weeks ago it was reported that Christoph Waltz was going to play the villain in Sam Mendes' Bond 24. It wasn't announced who exactly he would play, but today we have word that he will take on the role of none other than James Bond nemesis Ernst Stavro Blofeld!

Rumors of the character were sparked last year after MGM settled a lawsuit with writer Kevin McClory regarding the rights to the Blofeld character and the infamous Spectre organization. Now it looks there was a reason they made the settlement. When Bond 24 writer, John Logan, was asked about the character in a previous interview all he said was:

"You know, I think our villain's appropriate to the story we're telling."

Blofeld has been a part of six of the previous James Bond films that have been made. Sometimes his face is shown, other times we just hear his voice. »
