Dubrovnik in Croatia has served as a filming location for “Game of Thrones,” “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and is currently host to “Robin Hood: Origins”. It may also serve as a locale for the next James Bond film.
Almost a year ago came reports that EON Productions were scouting Croatia as a potential location for a future 007 shoot. This week, the city’s mayor confirmed that EON have progressed to advanced talks to host some filming in Dubrovnik on the twenty fifth official Bond feature.
MI6 HQ reports that “James Bond is in an advanced stage of negotiations” is what the mayor said during a press conference for the “Robin Hood” film. While an ad for “SPECTRE” was partly shot in the Croation town of Rovinj, the country has not been featured in a Bond film before.
Despite visiting over 40 countries, Bond’s on screen travels have notably not included any of Australasia, Scandinavia, Canada, almost all of Africa and the Middle East, and much of South-East Asia, Eastern Europe and South America.
