The next James Bond movie's title -- "Spectre" -- and cast were announced Thursday by Eon Productions, MGM Studios and Sony Pictures, the Hollywood Reporter noted.

Daniel Craig will reprise his role as 007, along with Naomi Harris as Eve Moneypenny, Ben Whishaw as Q, Ralph Fiennes as Gareth Mallory/M and Rory Kinnear as Tanner. The announcement was made in London at Pinewood Studios. The 24th Bond film based on Ian Fleming's popular British spy novels will be released in the United Kingdom on Oct. 23, 2015 and in the United States on Nov. 6, 2015.

Sam Mendes, director of the previous Bond film "Skyfall," which took in $1.1 billion worldwide at the box office, returns to direct "Spectre." Some speculate that is the name of the fictional terrorist organization from multiple James Bond novels that made it into 1962's "Dr. No."

"Spectre" will feature new faces: Christoph Waltz as Oberhauser, a character Hollywood Reporter said could refer to Hannes Oberhauser -- Bond's ski instructor and considered his second father; Lea Seydoux as Madeleine Swann, Monica Bellucci as Lucia Sciarra; David Bautista as Mr. Hinx; and Andrew Scott as a British secret service agent named Denbigh.

Bond will drive a new Aston Martin DB10, but it's unclear if he's still drinking Heineken -- his drink of choice in "Skyfall" that replaced his longtime iconic "shaken, not stirred" martinis.
