Bond
is back.

Early this morning, Sony announced the official cast for the 24th film in the James Bond franchise, "Spectre." 

The title, of course, refers to SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion, a terrorist group from the early 007 films like "You Only Live Twice"" and "Thunderball." The group was led by Ernst Stavro Blofeld in those films -- and the character is rumored to return for this new flick.

Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Naomi Harris and Ben Whishaw will all return, along with new additions including Christoph Waltz, "Sherlock" star Andrew Scott and David Bautista

Waltz will be playing Bond's former ski instructor named Oberhauser ... but many believe he'll actually be Blofeld. Bautista's role is that of a henchman named Mr. Hinx

Following in the oh-so-sexy footsteps of women like Ursula AndressBarbara BachJill St. JohnDenise RichardsHalle BerryEva Green and, most recently, Berenice Marlohe, Monica Bellucci and Lea Seydoux will take on the "Bond Girl" roles this time around.

Picking up after the events of "Skyfall," which ended with the death of Judi Dench's "M" and Harris stepping into the role of Moneypenny, the film will follow our favorite spy as he tries to uncover the sinister organization mentioned in the title.

His travels will take him to London, Mexico City, Rome, Tangier, Morocco and Austria.

We also got a look at Bond's new wheels, as the Aston Martin DB10 was unveiled as part of the presentation.
