    So do we know anything about bond 25 at this point

    We are absolutely thrilled to confirm that we are in complete darkness.

    So, are they going to film 3 days in the studio and then already in Matera? It might no be so easy to change all shooting schedules. (I'm surprised the 007 stage or whatever they booked is still free one month later.)
    Yeah, it's weird. They're probably in the midst of accommodating the delays for each location as well. I wonder if everything has been pushed back a month.

    I dont think they could delay location shooting. We will probably never know the full schedule but it seems more likely they try and work with Pinewood in changing dates than locations.
    Did we actually get a concrete date for shooting on location? We've discussed so much since I can't actually recall.

    There was an article from an Italian paper last week which detailed the locations in Matera that will be used and listed a filming start date of April 6th, 2019.

    Despite people's persistent concerns, we know it's gonna be released on April 8 2020, and that Daniel Craig, Léa Seydoux and the MI6 regulars will appear (although no-ones sure about Rory Kinnear)...

    And before you all reply, "Oh, well they'll probably delay again". There are so many reason why this isn't going to happen. We've already discussed the amount of money they will have to waste for that to become true.

    Also, they now have over a year to get it made, which was way longer than Spectre had, which only had about nine or ten months from when filming had started. With filming rumoured to start in April (thanks to @Pierce2Daniel), they have exactly a year pretty much to film, score, edit and market Bond 25.

    As for this, we'll probably find out if this true when we get the press conference. I won't surprised either way. They could start filming in Italy, but I think it's more likely they'll probably work out a deal to film later, but until the production team give us anything regarding filming dates, I'm gonna take that article with a pinch of salt. The only location I think is a certain at this point is Norway, as we've had pictures and footage from Fukunaga's visits and the grant made last month.

    @Denbigh plus they have already confirmed released dates for countries the Netherlands April 9th 2020 and Australia like the 21st or 28th I think

    Exactly! I get people's worries and concerns, but my faith in Bond 25 is based on the factual information we get from Eon or Universal, not people's worst-case scenarios.

    It seems that all things are arranged for an April start. My question now is when will they do the Press Conference? Early March with he bare minimum information as rooms are already booked at Pinewood. Or the usual week before principal?

    Could Burns have already been working for weeks prior to the report and actually get 5 or 6 weeks of work before filming commences.

    It's hard to say. They probably won't want to have the conference when the script's not finished unless Burns' changes are not as severe as people are saying, so I'd imagine we'd get it around the end of March/beginning of April.

    Just for the record I read some updated articles on Italian newspapers that listed “Spring/Summer” as the potential period of shooting in Italy. The same articles that listed not only Matera but some places in Puglia as well.

    Yeah, it's hard to judge reports coming in from "unreliable" sources, but it definitely fits more with the recent updates. I just hope we get to see Matera on screen cause it looks beautiful. It kinda reminds of some of the Cairo sequences from The Spy Who Loved Me.

    It's been said numerous times and as someone who's visited Matera in person it's unlikely that location will actually be Italy, it's doubled as Jerusalem twice now for Passion of The Christ and Mary Magdalene.

    It's quite like nowhere else in Europe.

    Oh I absolutely LOVE Italy as a location; gorgeous, historic. I am hoping for a great shoot in Norway and Italy.

    As for the writer, Burns, yes I feel that surely he has had communication before now (written and verbal) from EON and Daniel; so his jumping into the writing is not cold, not without having a good idea of what they want.

    I agree, if they’ve been courting Burns, he was aware of were they were and what they were not happy with; he did not have cold start.

    Right, unique. Matera recently doubled Jerusalem also in Ben-Hur, plus the fantasy world of Themyshira in Wonder Woman.

    PS Really nice pics!

    Add "The Gospel According to St. Matthew" by Pier Paolo Pasolini to that.

    I don't know personally but this could be doubling for a middle eastern location so who knows.

    Like you and others I'm just so delighted at this point we don't have a clue and hopefully the press conference will be a first real bite at some info.

    I will be very surprised if Matera is actually Matera, that is if it's getting used.

    Very well could be...

    I'd personally like to see maybe a boat/foot chase, like we saw in the Heineken ad back in 2015 :)

    And yes very exciting! I remember when the locations were coming out for Spectre, I remember just being so this is where the airplane scene is gonna happen and this is where Madeleine Swann is going to work. It's my own fault for reading the leaked script, but it's nice to play the guessing game again this time round :D

    Icebreaker. Norway and Swann.

    Plus it's arguably Gardner's best title.

    I’m very into Icebreaker. I like the one word titles; punchy. I can certainly appreciate the longer more romantic titles as well though.

    I think the complete rewrite was an overstatement. Definitely makes a good headline.

    There’s no way it’s a page 1 rewrite. There will be sections they feel they’ve not cracked. Sometimes these issues just need fresh eyes to find a way through. Again, it’s difficult to understand for anyone who has never put pen to paper, but easy to assume it’s a simple thing - like cooking an egg.

    Actually speaking of romantic, the new release date has settled some of my concerns. I remember feeling that because it was going to released on Valentine's Day that they were going to make some kind of effort to have a romantic element. Plus, with Madeleine Swann returning, it made me think it was even more possible that we were going to get an OHMSS/DAF reboot.

    I must confess I read bits of it myself and kind of knew things were coming up, although that did factor into the enjoyment factor it was just one of the many problems with that film.

    I'm hoping that Bond 25 retains some of that grit we got in CR & QOS, I loved SF but a film like that should have been a one shot deal and not explored any further.

    A boat or a foot chase would be good, I'm thinking Burns if he injects some humour into the script that it will be more like Craig's first 2. It certainly didn't work in SP and SF attempts weren't really playing to Craig's ability to deliver dead pan witty lines as opposed to the ones only Roger could get away with.

    So @Shardlake I've tried to do some colour-correction editing with one of the Matera images to see what it could look like. I've tried to give it the Istanbul, Turkey vibe from Skyfall, although I'll probably never be able to recreate the beauty of that film :D

    I like it, will be interesting to see what Sandgren brings to Bond 25. Loved Hoyte's work elsewhere but SP not really.

    Deakins though just owned it with SF.

    Same here! Sandgren is an artist and I cannot wait to see what he brings to the film :)
