Bond 25 Opening Scene to Reportedly Be Filmed in Italy

-

Matera, Italy will be the setting of the Bond 25 opening scene, according to a report in Variety. Filming in the city of 60,403 people is expected to take place in late July and preparations are already underway to accommodate an estimated 500 production people. The town was previously used as backdrops for the Jerusalem set of Mel Gibson’s The Passions of The Christ. It was also used for Ben-Hur and Wonder Woman.

The trade adds that this Bond 25 opening scene will be similar to SPECTRE‘s prologue, which was filmed in Mexico City during the Day of the Dead celebrations. Italy has been previously used for James Bond films, such as SPECTRE and Quantum of Solace.

Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli recently announced today that the release date for United Artists Releasing‘s Bond 25 was pushed back from February 14, 2020 to April 8, 2020.

Daniel Craig will return as 007 in the 25th James Bond film. He has played the secret agent in four films so far, including Casino Royale (2006), Quantum of Solace (2008), Skyfall (2012), and SPECTRE (2015). He also made a guest appearance as Bond in the Danny Boyle-directed opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games, alongside Queen Elizabeth II.

Léa Seydoux is expected to reprise the role of Dr. Madeleine Swann from SPECTRE in the next James Bond film. Swann is the daughter of Mr. White who helps Bond identify the organization known as SPECTRE. Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris will also be back. Cary Joji Fukunaga will direct from a script by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.
