Rome Filming (4)
23rd February 2015
The night-time shoot for SPECTRE's big car chase started in Rome on Monday evening
By MI6 Staff
Daniel Craig was in action again on Monday evening in Rome, Italy. As night fell, shooting began on the car chase between 007's Aston Martin DB10 and Mr Hinx's Jaguar C-X75.
Roads were closed as the Craig walked the cobbled streets between takes in a full suit jacket and waist coat up top, and jeans and Nike Air trainers below.
Both the Aston Martin and Jaguar were kitted out with ride-on-top stunt setups so the principal actors could be filmed behind the wheel whilst a professional driver took control.
SPECTRE (2015) is the new James Bond film and the 24th in the series. It will be the fourth outing for Daniel Craig as 007, and the second film to be directed by Sam Mendes from a screenplay by John Logan, Neal Purvis & Robert Wade. The new MI6 team of Ralph Fiennes (M), Naomie Harris (Moneypenny), Rory Kinnear (Tanner) and Ben Whishaw (Q) are all reprising their roles. The cast will include Lea Seydoux, Dave Bautista, Andrew Scott and Christoph Waltz. Production commences on December 8th 2014, with location work as early as 5th January 2015 in Austria. The film will also shoot on location in: Erfoud and Tangier, Morocco; Rome, Italy and Mexico City, Mexico. SPECTRE is scheduled for release on 7th November 2015.
