James Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli have today confirmed principal photography for the 25th official James Bond will begin on 28 April 2019.
The announcement took place at GoldenEye in Jamaica, once the home of Ian Fleming where he created the James Bond character in 1952.
The 007 production will be based at Pinewood Studios in the UK, and on location in London, Italy, Jamaica and Norway.
Bond 25 will be directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga from a screenplay co-written by Fukunaga, Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, Scott Z. Burns and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and star Daniel Craig as Bond for a fifth time, alongside returning cast members Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Rory Kinnear, Léa Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, and Jeffrey Wright, and new cast members Ana de Armas, Dali Benssalah, David Dencik, Lashana Lynch, Billy Magnussen and Rami Malek.
Bond 25 is scheduled to be released in cinemas across the UK and internationally on 3 April 2020.
Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help.
The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
