The recordings of the new James Bond film take place partly in Norway. Earlier in the series there were also scenes for You Only Live Twice (1967) and Die Another Day (2002). Bond 25 will premiere in 2020.
Norway was mentioned more often in the corridors as the location where the new James Bond film would be made. The Norwegian film institute has made the announcement today, Norwegian media reports. The institute gives the film, which is announced as B25, a subsidy of 47 million crowns (about 5 million euros). A record amount for a foreign film.
The new Bondfilm must be on show in the cinemas in early 2020. The recordings begin in March. Actor Rami Malek, who currently shines in the cinemas as Freddie Mercury in hit film Bohemian Rhapsody , would be high on the list for the role of big villain in the new James Bond.
Although the producers did not confirm anything, more and more pieces of information about Bond 25 dripped out in the past few days. For example, actress Léa Seydoux, who played the role of bondgirl in Specter , will be shown again in the new part alongside Daniel Craig as 007.
Other actors returning are Ralph Fiennes as M, Ben Whishaw as Q and Naomie Harris as Miss Moneypenny. The 25th Bond film was delayed earlier this year because director Danny Boyle was sidelined by the producers. His ideas about the series ultimately did not correspond with the direction the fixed producers were thinking of.
