New details have emerged regarding some filming on the upcoming twenty-fourth film in the James Bond series.
As previously indicated, some of the production on the fourth screen outing for Daniel Craig’s version of 007 is scheduled to take place in Italy. Now, Italian news agency ANSA (via THR) indicates that Rome will be the host for “no less than three key action scenes” in the upcoming film.
Several night-time high-speed car chases are planned through the historical center’s narrow streets and along the wide Corso Vittorio thoroughfare.
One sequence will see a car ending up in the Tiber river, a Fiat 500 will be crushed along the Borgo Vittorio, and finally Bond himself will parachute from a helicopter onto the Ponte Sisto pedestrian bridge. Other scenes will be shot outside of Rome in Campania, specifically at the Royal Palace of Caserta.
Production on the film begins next month at Pinewood Studios in the U.K., with the Italian leg of the shoot expected to take place from February 19th to March 12th next year. Key filming will also take place in Morocco, though it’s unclear if that will be before or after the Italian shoot.
