Filming has already begun in part on James Bond 25. Scenes without Craig have been captured on a frozen lake in Norway before the ice melted. But now the main bulk of principal photography is set to kick off at the end of this month. And the 51-year-old star himself has been spotted arriving in Jamaica with Bond producer Michael G Wilson.
Unofficial, but reliable, Twitter account @Bond25Film said: “Reports from several airport staff suggest that the Bond25 cast and crew (including Daniel Craig) have arrived in Jamaica.”
This was confirmed by pictures of Craig in a baseball hat and sunglasses, that were shared on the account.
Last month the Jamaican government confirmed rumours Bond 25 would be shooting in the Caribbean nation.
The country’s JIS News shared an article confirming that Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett and Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sports Minister Olivia Grange will be travelling to Pinewood Studios to meet with Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson this coming week.
Minister Bartlett confirmed discussions were advanced, while the outlet said Jamaica will feature in the movie.
Clearly, talks went very well seeing as Bond 25’s cast and crew have arrived to start shooting the highly anticipated new movie.
Nevertheless, fans may be at odds as to why the traditional press conference announcing Bond 25’s title and cast hasn’t happened yet.
Well, today the official James Bond social media pages announced the big reveal will take place tomorrow.
The James Bond official Twitter account shared the news: “Coming tomorrow at 13:10 BST, the #BOND25 Live Reveal from an iconic 007 location. Ask the cast a question using #BOND25.”
Presumably, the “iconic 007 location” will be at Ian Fleming’s Goldeneye home in Jamaica or one of the locations from Dr No or Live and Let Die.
Fans can watch the event live via the franchise’s official YouTube, Facebook and Twitter channels, feeds and pages.
Meanwhile reveals will also take place on Good Morning America on Thursday and Friday.
Good Morning Britain will also have some content in the coming days.
Bond 25 is released in UK cinemas on April 3, 2020.
