Speculation has run rampant as to what will be the title of the new film, if Christoph Waltz is playing the big villain (possibly Blofeld), what role Dave Bautista is taking on, etc...
All your questions will be answered this Thursday it seems, as Sony Pictures will be holding a live event announcing the film's new title and lead cast.
Given that they've already replaced film MVP Roger Deakins with Hoyte Van Hoytema on DP duties. It can only go up from here I'm guessing, especially with Sam Mendes back behind the camera.
Here's the full press release:
