New blog posts every week with the latest information on SkyFall.
SKYFALL Motorbike stunt
Before production was temporarily stopped by severe weather conditions, it has been reported that the SKYFALL team have been shooting a motorcycle stunt sequence in Istanbul across the roofs of buildings throughout the city. Towards the end of April, Daniel Craig and Sam Mendes will be shooting on location in the neighbourhoods of Istanbul, possibly Eminonu Square. At present, we understand they have been filming in Bankacilar Avenue, Aynacilar Street, Sultanhamam and the Grand Bazaar. Production is expected to finish in Turkey on 6th May.
A turkish video sprung up during the week on DailyMotion showing two stunt men (one doubling for James Bond) shooting through the city on motorbikes. A media report shows footage of one of the stunt men standing by a shop with the window smashed. Whether this was part of the film or not is unknown as the media are already claiming that "the stuntman swerved to avoid hitting extras while careering through the Grand Bazaar at high speed"
Producers quizzed on Adele for SKYFALL Theme
As the cast and crew were being interviewed last week by the press, Barbara Broccoli was asked if they had considered Adele for the title song. "We haven’t picked a song yet or anyone to sing it," she said. Craig joked "How about Adele?", to which she replied "You know, she’s wonderful; we love her, so, it’ll be great if she would do it, but we haven’t got any -- we haven’t made any decision yet. Watch this space."
