“Bond 23” Begins Filming Late 2010

Daniel Craig has revealed that the next James Bond feature will begin shooting late next year says CommanderBond.net.

Signing autographs after a performance of his Broadway play A Steady Rain, a fan in the crowd asked when the next 007 adventure would hit.

Craig responded “we start the end of the next year” and the fan caught the response on video.

That news follows the general schedule of Bond movie production which commences 10-12 months before release, indicating a November 2011 opening.

The release would be three years after “Quantum of Solace” which scored notable criticism for being a rushed, troubled production in order to meet a release date.

Producer Michael G. Wilson had previously stated that work began on the script earlier this year.

In other Bond news this week saw the passing of Joseph Wiseman, the talented Canadian thesp who notably appeared as Doctor No, the very first Bond villain in the first of the Bond films “Dr. No” in 1962.

Despite appearing in only two scenes of the film, his character and performance in the now famous dinner table scene where he explains his plans to Bond (Sean Connery) laid the ground work for not only this franchise but many other action movies that followed.
