The new James Bond movie, the 24th in the franchise, will be called Spectre and will star Christoph Waltz, Lea Seydoux and Monica Bellucci, producers announced Thursday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
According to the official James Bond Twitter feed, Waltz will play Oberhauser (a possible reference to Bond's ski instructor Hannes Oberhauser), Seydoux will play Madeleine Swann and Bellucci will play Lucia Sciarra. WWE star Dave Bautista is also starring as Mr. Hinx, and Sherlock's Andrew Scott will be playing a character named Denbigh.
Production on the film, which is being directed by Sam Mendes, is set to begin next week.
