According to Mirror, Adele was flown over by MGM executives and has been spotted earlier this week in California.

A source at MGM says:

“Everyone thinks Adele is here for her much anticipated new album, but she is actually working on a music idea for the James Bond film.

She hadn’t been in contact with the film bosses for a few weeks, but suddenly she said​ she had great plans for the theme, so they flew her over.

The execs made their feelings known to Adele that they want her back for the next film. They’ll still have to decide whether they want the tune once it’s recorded.”

We just have to wait and see.

A broken wooden hutblack aircraft, loud gun sounds, rising smoke and Daniel Craig with a gun in his hand. That can only mean one thing: the shootings of the new James Bond film in Obertilliach are fully going on! Finally, there are some new pictures from the set and they look very promising.




And action!
According to eyewitnesses, in the scene of simulated crash, the armed Bond was seen as he jumped out of the wreck and ran a gun in his hand. The scene was filmed near the wooden house - The "James Bond House", which has been built for "SPECTRE" movie.









In addition to the simulated plane crash, exciting chase scenes are planned on the snowy slopes. A total of four action scenes in Obertilliach are included. Daniel Craig will probably stay in the village until 16 January 2015. On Thursday it has been foggy weather and it is expected to have worse weather on Friday in Obertilliach.

The preparations for the upcoming James Bond film in Obertilliach go into the final phase. On Wednesday snow was delivered to the town center and also the special constructed house has been built.

The newly created hole in the center of the house is obvious. Security personnel and fences keep away the photographers from the filming location in Obertilliach.

According to an insider, they have prepared the structure for the scene of a plane crash. A big hole was made in the middle of the house was built during Monday and Tuesday.

There was also a Land Rover on its roof on the set.

There will be a plane crash scene and also several explosion scenes in Obertilliach. A pyrotechnician has been on-site since December and has repeatedly done test blasts.

Special effects supervisor Chris Corbould arrived at the filming set today afternoon.

On Wednesday morning it is quiet in Obertilliach. "There's not much going on," is heard from the community. There is no trace of nervousness. Nevertheless - production assistant is eagerly working on the final preparations.

They will film also in the center of Obertilliach, but there is not so much snow at the moment, which is not usual in the high mountain village, but the snow cannons do a good job.


Currently, there is sunny in the district of Lienz, but in the coming days, the weather is about to change. "Anyway, it would be desirable to have bad weather and snow for some scenes," revealed the insider to tt.com.

What exactly will happen in Obertilliach, should remain a closely guarded secret. As the TT already reported, all participants had to sign a confidentiality agreement. Breaking the contract will have heavy consequences. Even mobiles phones will be removed from the extras, so nothing will leak outside.

Further preparations on Wednesday morning

James Bond and "SPECTRE" (2015) crew arrive in Rome (SPOILERS included)

Daniel Craig and Ponte Sisto


Thank you our good friend in Rome for the alert!

According to Il Messaggero, (An article 10 January 2015) The Roman locations which have been already selected, have obtained the approval of Ministry of culture and Soprintendenza of Arts after months of location negotiations with local authorities. Filming is from 19 February to 12 March 2015.

A high-speed night-time car chase through the narrow streets around the Vatican will be included. What else? See it here:

It seems that Bond could pass under Porta San Pancrazio, which is usually closed. After that the Bond's car should continue to run in Garibaldi street in front of the Garibaldi museum, some changes could happen there because in the past day a pine tree fell and broke the wall of the museum.

Scalo De Pinedo
James Bond will start his Roman tour in the very city centre from the Theatre of Marcellus - Teatro di Marcello (known also as Little Colosseum), at the dawn. Then the chase will continue to Corso Vittorio Emanuele, and thanks to the cinematic fiction, then continues in Via Nomentana, physically far from the centre. In Via Quattro Novembre Bond' s car will hit a row of scooters. Then downhill to Via Panisperna and in Borgo Vittorio. In Via degli Ombrellari Bond makes the car jump over a parked car. In Via della Conciliazione (in front of St. Peter's Basilica) the car goes under the historical "passetto", the secret passage between St. Peter and Castel Sant ´Angelo used by Popes to escape. Then a long drive near the Tiber River (Tevere, in Italian) up to Scalo De Pinedo (fluvia le port De Pinedo) where the cars run close to the waters. A car falls down into the river.

Scalo De Pinedo marked on the map

Via della Conciliazione


Il Passetto




















Castel Sant ´Angelo


The main scene in Rome will be filmed in Sisto Bridge (Ponte Sisto). The day, or better the night, is estimated to be the 12 of March. James Bond will land by a parachute on the historical bridge. The scene will be very complex and the area will be closed to everyone from sunset to dawn. It will take 5 days to prepare the set and 2 days to restore the area to normal again. In Piazza Trilussa two giant cranes of 90 and 200 tons will be placed near river for the scenes of the cars flown into the river.

All electrical equipment will be placed along Lungotevere (the road along the Tiber river). The Electric Society of Rome (ACEA) will add extra lights in the area of the set and will light the walls of the Tiber.

A last minute approval of the artistic authorities gives the possibility to film inside the ancient Villa Fiorano, which is located in the old Via Appia. There is a danger that the ancient Via Appia might not handle the weight of the equipment.

One scene will be also filmed in the historical Rome cemetery of Verano.

Arrivederci Mr. Bond! CIAO!


Arrivederci Mr. Bond

10th January 2015

Officials in Rome have nixed plans to shoot some of the car chase through the famous Quattro Fontane
Whilst the first unit is busy filming in Solden, Austria, a complication hit the second unit's preparations in Italy this week.
City officials in Rome have nixed plans for the car chase between the Aston Martin and Jaguar to race around the famous Baroque fountain.

Above: The Quattro Fontane (the Four Fountains) is an ensemble of four Late Renaissance fountains located at the intersection of Via delle Quattro Fontane and Via del Quirinale in Rome.

According to local reports, the four fountains that make up the Quattro Fontane are too fragile to risk a stunt driving through the crossroads and over an obstacle.
"We have not given permission for the sequence at the Quattro Fontane because the site is too delicate from an architectural point of view," said Federica Galloni, a cultural heritage official.

"We have asked the producers not to film there but instead to create the sequence with special effects in post-production. At the moment the scene has been suspended, and we’re waiting for the producers to tell us how they intend to resolve the problem.

There is still plenty of car chase action to shoot in Rome, as well as a parachute stunt that will see 007 descend on to the 15th century Ponte Sisto bridge.

Pirita from 007 Travelers investigates how fragile
one of the four fountains is for Bond filming :)
Planned car chase near Four Fountains in Rome, Italy might need some changes in "SPECTRE" (2015), because cultural heritage officials of Rome are afraid that fountains are too fragile and might be damaged during the filming.

"We have asked the producers not to film there but instead to create the sequence with special effects in post-production. At the moment the scene has been suspended, and we’re waiting for the producers to tell us how they intend to resolve the problem.”, says cultural heritage official Federica Galloni.

Filming of "SPECTRE" (2015), which stars Daniel Craig as 007, is expected to move to Rome on 19 February and to last for about five weeks.

BOND 24 STATUS - The "SPECTRE" production will use a cable car in Sölden, Austria


The "SPECTRE" production will use a cable car in Sölden, Austria


According to some film blogs the "SPECTRE" (2015) production will use a cable car, the town's glacier road, and a tunnel in the  Sölden region of Austria.



The "SPECTRE" production will use a cable car, the town's glacier road,
and a tunnel in the Sölden region of Austria.

Sölden offers the most modern lifts for a quick and comfortable ascent up the mountain. The connection of the winter ski resort to the glacier ski resort is with the "Golden Gate to the Glacier" connection lift. The Sölden's BIG 3 - all are over 3,000 meters high - are access with modern cable car lifts. For example, the Gaislachkogl lift provides access with two modern lifts to Sölden's dominant ski mountain, the Gaislachkogl (one of the BIG 3). The new lifts achieve three records - The first section of the lift, an 8-person cable car, has the world's largest transport capacity with 3600 people/hour. The second section of the lift, a 3-S lift with cars holding 30 people each, is the world's highest 3-S lift (3040 m) and features a unique rescue system - the passengers would not have to leave the cars during an evacuation and would be brought back to the station in safety.

Gaislachkogl, 3S Gondola, Austria

3S Gaislachkogl

Building on permafrost

The support 3 of the new Gaislachkogl 3S Cable Car in Sölden had to be built on permafrost. On account of the settling and displacements of the frozen soil as a result of the climate change (the ice is thawing), the foundations of support 3 were built on a relocatable basis by 60 cm lengthways and crossway to the cableway axis. In addition, the six components of the foundation can be lifted individually by up to 60 cm.

The mountain station was set up on 19 individual foundations with a grillage. This grillage has been designed so it can be lifted by up to 1 meter above each of the 19 individual foundations. Furthermore, a special ventilation of the grillage was implemented in order to control fresh ice formation.

The abovementioned measures allow for a long-term accommodation of the settling of the mountain forecast by the geologist and guarantee the operation of the 3S Cable Car.

The new 3S system in Sölden, Austria is a technical marvel with numerous firsts. Firstly, special foundations were designed to deal the geological challenges associated with building in a permafrost zone. Secondly, vehicles are equipped with special dampening mechanisms and permanent ventilation features. Lastly, a new evacuation concept was developed to ensure that no online evacuations would ever need to occur. Instead, this new technology ensures that the vehicles can always be returned to the station.
