'SPECTRE' production moves to Austria next week

03-Jan-2015 • Spectre (2015)

As expected, the crew for James Bond's 24th 007 adventure, "SPECTRE", are heading to Lake Altaussee next week, with locals expecting 007 star Daniel Craig to be on location at the picturesque lake by Monday 5th. Craig will be joined by a 300-strong crew.

The Jagdhaus Seewiese, an iconic log cabin, was of particular interest to the location scouts when they first expressed an interest in the location back in October.

A flight ban has been ordered by the local authorities, in effect between the 4th and the 6th of January, with the mayor explaining this was not because of any aerial action but so that paragliders who frequent a nearby club will not spoil any of the crew's shots. Areal shots for "SPECTRE" were under way under the stewardship of second unit director Alexander Witt back in December.

The scene set at Altaussee and to feature the Jagdhaus is expected to involve 007 crossing the lake by boat. Although locals previously speculated that the scene could involve 007's latest nemesis - this time in the form of Christoph Waltz - MI6 understands Waltz will not start on 'SPECTRE' until February; he is thus unlikely to have a role in any large number of the scenes set in his native Austria.
