The 24th installment of the James Bond franchise, set to start shooting at Pinewood Shepperton outside of London in the coming weeks, will shoot some scenes in Rome.

The film will be Daniel Craig’s fourth turn as James Bond after taking the title role in Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace and Skyfall. Sam Mendes is returning to direct.

While details are still under wraps, a source confirmed that shooting was planned for Rome. Italian news agency ANSA reported that Rome will host no less than three key action scenes for the upcoming film. Several night-time high-speed car chases are planned through the historical center’s narrow, winding streets, as well as on main thoroughfare Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, with one car ending up in the Tibur river, it reported.

Another high-speed car chase will reportedly result in an iconic Fiat 500 getting crushed in Borgo Vittorio, near the Vatican. And perhaps most memorably, Bond will parachute from a helicopter onto Ponte Sisto, a 15th century pedestrian bridge that connects Trastevere to the center, ANSA said.

There will also be scenes shot outside of Rome, in Campania, in the Royal Palace of Caserta, known as the Versailles of Italy, according to the report. The new James Bond project is expected to hit theaters in late 2015.

Production in Italy will run Feb. 19-March 12. Having 007 in Rome marks a major win for the city’s film industry. Production offices will be based at the Cinecitta studios.

Sources close to the production told THR that key filming for the movie will also take place in Morocco.

Shooting on Sam Mendes’ next James Bond film, starring Daniel Craig, moves back two months for script work…

It’s little secret that the 24th James Bond film, and the one to pick up the mantle from Skyfall, is set to shoot later this year. With a UK release date of October 2015, time is not on the side of the production.

The new movie, which Sam Mendes is returning to direct, won’t however be shooting until December now it seems, courtesy of a fresh delay caused by the need for more script work. With it previously having looked as if they’d completed their work on the Bond series after five movies, screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade are apparently back on board to take a pass at John Logan’s screenplay. The aim is to add more humour, it seems, with a specific focus on scenes between Bond and Miss Moneypenny, and 007 and his new boss, Ralph Fiennes’ M.

This won’t affect that aforementioned release date, although it doesn’t allow much further breathing room in the production for further delays.
