The crew recently moved from Adana, where train stunts involving Ola Rapace’s character were captured on location.
Now the crew have moved to Istanbul to shoot in the bustling Grand Bazaar and Eminönü Square. Sadly, reports have come in that the location has, thus far, been plagued by an accident and a gale force wind – causing disarray and delays in the shooting.
Reuters reports that a stunt bike swerved and crashed into a class shop front in a 15th-century building on the set of Skyfall. No one was injured in the process.
Last night winds got up and caused damage for the production in Istanbul.
Next week 007 and his crew are rumored to be bound for Koca Calis beach and pier where they will shoot between 24th and 27th on the Turkish Mediterranean coast.
