MI6 has the scoop on the new bikes to feature in Skyfall, the 23rd James Bond adventure. Plus, pictures from the location shoot in Istanbul.
Below Patrice, played by Ola Rapace is pursued by James Bond in Istanbul.
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.
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.
007.com released two videoblogs today. The first has Berenice Marlohe, the french beauty playing Severine, discussing her role.
The second is action girl, Naomie Harris, who is playing Field Agent Eve. The character is set to see a lot of action and as Harris reiterates this in the video there is a behind the scenes look at the new Bond girl’s weapon training.
The most interesting thing, from our perspective, was a look at Severine on set. She is seen descending an escalator with two heavies behind her. Most of the people in the scene are Asian, and so we predict that she will have heavy involvement in the Shanghai sequences, shot mostly at Pinewood but with some outdoor action captured by the second unit. It also appears that more is going on in this scene that first meets the eye. Observant viewers note that Severine is passing information to a colleague going up the elevator.
Bond 23 crew are filming on a replica Scottish lodge, scenes that obviously cannot be recreated at the real location.
Large military looking helicopters have been requisitioned for a scene and twitter user David Ogilby was on location with a camera.

A key plot development and location for the forthcoming James Bond film, Skyfall, will be a Scottish lodge, potentially with ties to Bond’s heritage.

One reader contacted Bond23.net recently to report that further London location shooting was taking place on the Mall, in central London.
Filming took place on 25th February in the late afternoon – our source was informed that the cast and crew were not showing up until after midday but the crew were already on location, preparing M’s Jaguar for shooting.
We understand that the scene involved Rory Kinnear, Judi Dench and 007 star Daniel Craig.
