Spectre, the next James Bond movie

(via Esquire)
So it was announced today that the name for the twenty-fourth Bond movie will be Spectre. For anybody with even passing knowledge of the Bondverse, the title will immediately raise at least one eyebrow. SPECTRE (which, according to Wikipedia, stands for SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion) was the name of an international terrorist organization headed by...Ernesto Blofield, one of Bond's worst arch-nemesis. Blofield was the one who murdered Bond's wife in On Her Majesty's Secret Service, so maybe they'll be doing a remake of that movie somewhere down the line?
Hail Hydra...I mean SPECTRE!

Casting-wise, Daniel Craig is returning as Bond, as is Ben Whishaw as Q. Christoph Waltz is starring as someone named Oberhauser. Ralph Fiennes takes over as a new male M. Dave Bautista from Guardians of the Galaxy of all people is starring too, which could help solidify his acting career if this is more than minor role and the movie is successful.
