Sun is shining brighly and there are thirty degrees at midday in Piazza Vittorio Veneto, in the center of Matera when filming of new Bond movie “No Time to Die” continued.
Filmmakers are shooting 12 hours/day, from six in the morning until six in the evening. At least three models of legendary Aston Martin DB5 were seen on set yesterday in Matera, one dirty and scratched, one “prepared” for special effects and one brand new.
Bond star Daniel Craig was not on the set yet. He should arrive on the 9th of September for some close-ups and will stay only a couple of days, a source said. Before that the second unit, stuntmen, technical department and special effects people will work on film.
It is believed that the Matera sequence will open the film. Bond visits a cemetery – also built in the area – before some people attack and he has to escape with his Aston Martin. The escape scene will then end and the famous opening title sequence begins.
“No Time to Die” is directed by Cary Fukunaga and the film is set to premiere in April 2020.
Thank you for the tip, Stefano from Italy.
