Istanbul Video Diary

29th April 2012

James Bond has touched down in Turkey for third time in his 50 years on screen. Daniel Craig and his co-stars are hard at work on location in Istanbul and before them, the "Skyfall" second unit was in Adana, filming a series of train and motorbike stunts. Today the cast and crew took a breather from shooting in the colourful city to speak to the world's media.

To mark the event, 007.com has released a new video diary featuring highlights of the Q&A and video from the photocall that took place in the Ciragan Palace hotel.

"It's a real privilege - it's an honour to be here. Bond has a close relationship with Istanbul. The welcome we've received has just been overwhelming." - Daniel Craig on his arrival in Turkey

The 23rd James Bond film, "Skyfall", commenced principal studio photography on 7th November 2011 for a UK release on October 26th, 2012 and the USA on November 9, 2012. MGM will produce, finance and distribute 007's 23rd adventure in partnership with Sony Pictures Entertainment.

Daniel Craig will be returning as the legendary British secret agent, alongside Judi Dench as "M", with Sam Mendes directing a screenplay written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan. The cast will also include Bérénice Marlohe, Javier Bardem, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney and Ben Wishaw. The film will shoot at Pinewood Studios and on location in London, England; Scotland; Shanghai, China and Istanbul, Turkey.

It will be the longest gap between Bond movies without a change in the lead role. In addition, 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of the EON Productions series of James Bond films.
