Dame Judi Dench was spotted on location in London for a late night "Skyfall" shoot on Sunday...

It's Raining M

21st February 2012

"Skyfall" filming hit the streets of London once again this weekend as Dame Judi Dench completed shots that will feature very early in the film. M's new Jaguar was first seen filming on St Margaret's Street near Parliament Square with a double on Sunday, following up from other driving shots around the area with several cars.

A special rain-maker rig was erected in Cadogan Square, just a few minutes drive West of Parliament Square, to create an artificial torrential downpour. Dench was on location for the night shoot and was seen leaving a building - perhaps M's residence - and being ushered in to a Jaguar.

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.
