LONDON (AP) — 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.”
