The upcoming James Bond flick, ‘Skyfall,’ is scheduled to begin shooting in Istanbul this spring.
Istanbul will host the cast and crew of “Skyfall,” the next movie in the James Bond franchise and one of the most eagerly anticipated titles of the year, Turkish news agencies reported over the weekend.
Filming details for the upcoming movie in the franchise have started to emerge as producers of the 23rd film in the series continue working on shooting locations in Turkey. Filming in Istanbul will take nearly four weeks.
“Skyfall,” the 23rd installment in the franchise, to be directed by Sam Mendes, is set for theatrical release in November. Daniel Craig, who has been portraying James Bond since 2006’s “Casino Royale,” will be at hand in both filming sessions.
