007 returns. The 24th James Bond film will be called Spectre, according to an announcement by the studio Thursday.

The film will also include new cast members Christoph Waltz, Lea Seydoux, Dave Bautista, Andrew Scott and Monica Bellucci. Daniel Craig will be reprising his role as James Bond.

Waltz will play Oberhauser, which could refer to Hannes Oberhauser, a character who was Bond’s ski-instructor and considered his second father, says the Hollywood Reporter.

Spectre refers to a fictional terrorist organization from the James Bond books and films. It stands for Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion.

The film is set to be released in the U.S. on November 6, 2015.
