According to the twitter feed of the 3 time 007 Production Manager Terry Bamber, his work will “God willing” begin on James Bond 23 in August 2011. It is expected that shooting will commence in November 2011.
Bamber has worked on three 007 productions: Die Another Day, Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace as 2nd Unit Production Manager.
In another Tweet Bamber reveals his preference to shoot in India:
I have been coming to India since 1992 when I first worked in Varanasi – I am really hoping the next Bond film will come
This lends some weight to the earlier story that was circulating the Times of India this week – that the new James Bond movie production crew were seeking permission to shoot in India.
