The next James Bond film 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. SPECTRE was the terrorist organization headed by Ernst Blofeld in early Bond films starting with “Dr. No.”

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.”
