(Newser) – The 24th James Bond film, out Oct. 23 in the UK and Nov. 6 in the US, has a title and a cast. Both were announced live today from London's Pinewood Studios, the 007 franchise's British studio home, as principal photography on the movie is set to start Monday. The title: Spectre, likely a reference to the fictional terrorist organization—helmed by Bond's arch-enemy Ernst Stavro Blofeld—that has been a part of Bond novels and previous films, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
