It seemed as if it was a bit touch and go whether Daniel Craig would don the tuxedo for one last outing as James Bond. However, Craig will be playing Bond in one last movie, Bond 25 was initially going to be helmed by Danny Boyle and then after the usual creative differences, Boyle left the project to be replaced by Cary Fukunaga.
A couple of weeks back it was revealed that Bond 25 will premier in the UK on April 8 2020, with a slightly later release globally. We hadn’t been told when to expect filming to start properly on the movie, but it seems like at least one sequence of the movie will start filming very shortly.
According to MI6HQ Fukunaga and his assistant travelled to Norway this morning, with crew expected to travel today also. The reason for this early start is because one of the scenes in the film will utilise a frozen lake in Norway. If they leave things too long, the weather is going to get hotter and the lake will melt. So its either go now, or wait till the lake freezes over again next winter, not really an option with an April release date.

The outlet also claims that they have heard the script remains unfinished, but necessity drives them to film this sequence now rather than wait for a completed script. Let’s face it, in a Bond movie the set-pieces are usually more important than the script to the point the script will be fit around them and not the other way.
I guess we will find out how cool the frozen lake part of the movie is sometime after April 8 next year?
