Joining Daniel Craig on board are the new MI6 regulars; Ralph Fiennes, who has taken over the role of the MI6 headmaster, codenamed "M", from Judi Dench, then there's Naomie Harris who plays Eve Moneypenny, Ben Whishaw as "Q", a computer technician instead of an armourer, and of course, Rory Kinnear as Bill Tanner, the chief of staff.
The main cast from left to right: Andrew Scott, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, (director) Sam Mendes, Lea Seydoux, Daniel Craig, Monica Bellucci, Christoph Waltz and Ben Whishaw.
Along with these, come along high profile names. Sherlock star, whom some of the fans of the television show would know him as the psychotic Moriarty of the 21st century, Andrew Scott plays Denbigh, said to be "a member of the Whitehall family." and next we have the femme fatale of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011), Lea Seydoux as Madeleine Swann. We all thought this rumour would end up being a neverlasting effort to bring this one lovely actress to the franchise, ever since Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), Monica Bellucci is finally cast as the major Bond Girl, Lucia Sciarra. The most intensive casting of all comes down to two-times Academy Award winner for Best Supporting Actor, is the distinguished gentleman with great menace, Christoph Waltz as Franz Oberhauser, the son of Hans Oberhauser, whom the Bond fans will recognize as the "adoptive father" for the young then-future spy.
"A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE."This could be very gravy for a Bond thriller, as the plot seems to be connected with past villains and 007's background, marrying them together, to face his biggest adventure yet. Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men, anyway? The title itself is somewhat too simple compared to the previous installments. Along with these revelations, it was also officially unveild that Bond will be driving an Aston Martin DB10, a brand new car never seen before.
While nothing exactly is revealed behind the motivation of each new character that will be introduced in this film, fandom speculation indicate us to know that Franz Oberhauser (Waltz), at the end will be revealed as the notorious megalomaniac Classic Bond (1962-2004) villain, the famed nemesis of Ian Fleming's spy, Ernst Stavro Blofeld.
Ernst Stavro Blofeld as played by Donald Pleasence in "You Only Live Twice" (1967).
The crew of the film are revealed to be helmed by numerous people involved in Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, and the latest original story, Interstellar (2014). The director of photography was appointed to Hoyte Van Hoytema, the music will be written by Thomas Newman, once again, whose reviewers are divided between those who appreciate his take, and those who don't (personally, me included). The script is based on an original story by John Logan, who also wrote the first draft, which was cleaned up and polished by Neal Purvis & Robert Wade. Produced by Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, who have put the fate of the entry in the hands of a well-known drama film director, Sam Mendes.
