Bond 24 To Start Filming In December And Looking For The Next Bond Girl

James-bond-daniel-craigThe twenty-fourth chapter in the James Bond franchise is set to go before the cameras this December according to Screenrant. Sam Mendes will be back once again to helm the movie along with screenwriters John Logan, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade. Cast wise we'll see the return of Daniel Craig (Bond), Ralph Fiennes (M), Naomi Harris (Miss Monneypenny), and Ben Whishaw (Q). Fiennes of course took over the role of M at the end of Skyfall which will make the the first Bond movie without Judi Dench in over 20 years.

The report says that casting for a new Bond Girl and villain are underway. We had previously heard they were looking for a new henchman on the level of Jaws (played by the recently departed Richard Kiel). There is also location information coming in saying there will be shooting in Austria, Morraco and Rome (where a car chase will be filmed). The studio shoots will take place at the legendery Pinewood Studios in England.

Word is that that they plan on building on the narrative threads created in the highly successful Skyfall and carry them on into Bond 25. Co-writer John Logan has previously said that film's themes and ideas can carry over into future installments and its "resonance" will be felt in Bond 24.

Bond 24 will be in UK theaters October 23rd, 2015 and US on November 6th, 2015.
