The Bond 24 Title Is ‘Spectre’

(CNN) -- The past is new again for agent 007: The next James Bond film will be called "Spectre."

Director Sam Mendes announced the name of the 24th official Bond film Thursday at England's Pinewood Studios.

Austrian actor Christoph Waltz will join Daniel Craig in the cast. Craig makes his fourth appearance as the rugged British secret service agent.

Shooting for the film, due for release in late 2015, begins Monday.

Mendes all but said the title was a nod to the SPECTRE terror group featured in Ian Fleming's James Bond novels and the early films.

"Those of you who have some knowledge of the Bond franchise and the legend of Bond will probably have some idea of what that refers to, but I couldn't possibly comment," Mendes said.

Rome, London, Mexico City, the Austrian Alps and Morocco will serve as some of the film's locations.

Former professional wrestler Batista (Guardians of the Galaxy) was cast as Mr. Hinx, causing quite a ruckus on the wrestling message boards.

I'm not crazy these super abstract titles they've been going with lately. "Quantum of Solace" pisses me off every time I hear it.
