Bond ahoy

Daniel Craig, dressed as James Bond, and his co-star Berenice Marlohe were spotted shooting scenes off the coast of Turkey onboard a luxury super-yacht.

Although they are shooting in Turkey, Marlohe’s involvement in these scenes gives us a clue that the location may be doubling for somewhere east of the Mediterranean.

The Skyfall cast have been working in Adana, Istanbul and now the costal town of Fethiye.

We suspect the Ug Boots will not be part and parcel with the glamourous evening dress.

First look at Javier Bardem as “Skyfall” villain

Javier Bardem was spotted filming an action sequence alongside Daniel Craig in London earlier in the week.

His ‘look’ for the film has been a guarded secret, but now it appears he has donned a wig or dyed his hair blonde for part or all of the picture.

Previously, the name of the character, to date a closely guarded secret of Skyfall, was leaked.

Bond Back in London for Foot-chase

James Bond 23 crew were back in London this week to shoot an action sequence in Whitehall and in Tower Hill.

The Skyfall team, including current James Bond star Daniel Craig were involved in shooting an intricate foot chase in the capital.

As a twitter pic from @007 revealed, this is sequence 131, that will take place after the underground station scenes filmed earlier in the production schedule.

It is mere scenes away from 134, a night shoot involving the Aston Martin DB5.

More London shooting is planned for February 4th, in and around Vauxhall bridge, near the official SIS building that has long doubled as MI6, Bond’s head office.

Shanghai location filming

Bond filming at Ascot train station – perhaps?

A tweet appeared recently wherein its author posted the following photo of a film crew setting up at Ascot train station. The tweeter tells told us at the time it was understood to be production of Skyfall, AKA Bond 23.

Skyfall previously shot at Ascot, doubling for an overseas location, so it was a fair assumption that the second unit was still working at the famed racecourse.

However, Daniel Craig, Michael Wilson and Sam Mendes were working elsewhere (Craig promoting his Girl With The Dragon Tattoo film in New York and Mendes overseeing his stage production of Richard III)… so the likelihood of Bond shooting at a fresh location whilst its principal cast and crew members are elsewhere seems a little suspect.

The tweeter then followed up with some other information – he says he is now told it wasn’t Bond, rather a TV show named Case Sensitive.

Whichever the case, Bond fever is certainly alive and well in the UK!

Ascot will be doubling for a Shanghai location in “Skyfall”

Reports from those behind the scenes have begun to emerge via the social media networks, including Twitter, that Skyfall is currently shooting at Ascot Racecourse in Berkshire.

Although it is expected that 007 and his entourage will spend considerable time in Shanghai for Skyfall, scenes are being shot closer to home.

MI6 has tracked down a stealthy behind the scenes photograph that reveals the location that Ascot is standing in for.

Tweeters on location report that shooting at Ascot has continued well into the night with wraps coming any time between 11.30pm and 3am.
