Bond 22 Starts Filming on Jan. 3


MI6 has translated an interview with Bond 22 director Marc Forster from Swiss newspaper SonntagsZeitung in which he reveals principal photography begins this Thursday, January 3, 2008. He also says this one is about the journey into 007’s inner-being:

“When Bond began in the Connery days, travel was a luxury not everyone could afford. Today, the world has become smaller. If Bond goes to a beach with palm trees it’s almost banal now. The only interesting trip remains the journey inwards, deep in to the psyche”.

In related news, The Times says filming will take place at U.K.’s Barbican (view official site) (Spoilers ahead!):

At the Barbican, a sign has gone up giving warning that next week it will be the venue for the filming of a scene from the next James Bond film, current working title Bond 22, which again will star Daniel Craig. Relax, ladies, Craig won’t be there, as far as I know; but in the Sculpture Court – so named, my informant tells me, because it was once meant to have contained sculpture but now doesn’t – they will film a man talking on a mobile phone, the sign says.

Bond 22 is targeting a November 7, 2008 release.
