Daniel Craig thinks the script for 'SPECTRE' is ''better than we had last time''.

The 46-year-old actor, who's playing James Bond for the fourth time in the much-anticipated new film, expects 'SPECTRE' to be superior to the 2012 hit 'Skyfall', which made more than $1.1 billion at the worldwide box office.

He said: ''We've got an amazing cast and, I think, a better script than we had last time.''

The title of the new Sam Mendes-directed film relates to the Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion (SPECTRE), which is led by iconic evil genius Ernst Stavro Blofeld, the scarred super-villain whose organisation played a prominent part in the 'Dr. No' and 'Thunderball' movies.

However, Daniel has refused to confirm or deny rumours that Christoph Waltz - who is playing a character called Oberhauser - will really be playing Bond's old adversary Blofeld, saying people would have to ''wait and see''.

Daniel told the BBC: ''We started something in 'Skyfall', it felt like a beginning of something. This feels like a continuation of that. We're going to put all of those elements in, and much more.''

Plot details of the new movie - which sees Ralph Fiennes replace Dame Judi Dench as M, the head of the MI6 intelligence service - read: ''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'.''
