Daniel Craig: 'Skyfall' Set in Istanbul

Daniel Craig: 'Skyfall' Set in Istanbul

Daniel Craig heads to set of the latest James Bond film, Skyfall, on Sunday (May 6) in Istanbul, Turkey.

Director Sam Mendes is “not out to do an angst-ridden movie, some chamber piece about people’s emotions,” the 44-year-old British actor told MTV News last month.

“It’s a Bond movie. But we both agreed that if he cast the film, which he did really well, and we brought in older characters and new characters, that we’d have something really rich and sort of exciting to watch,” Daniel added.

Last week, Daniel‘s wife, Rachel Weisz, paid him a visit while he took a break from filming scenes.

    Thanks, Jared. Though Daniel already flew to Adana… :D

  • Noisettes

    They want to show Turkey as an Arabic country but it’s totally not. They go to traditional places where they shoot the movies. İstanbul is very modern city as well.

  • Alice

    Can’t wait to see these movies this year.
    The Dark Knight Rises, Skyfall, The Hobbit!!!

    @Noisettes: Istanbul is currently one of the best sightseeing cities in the world. That kept Istanbul from a wave of modernization, thereby having protected the old townscape with numerous old temples and shrines. I heard James Bond team was stopping shoot while call an adhān. Thanks for respect for deeply ingrained in our culture/faith.

  • Esra

    Istanbul is an interesting city that’s a mix of the old and the new. And it’s a historical region that was a center for trade between the East and the West. I’m glad they got back to Turkey since From Russia With Love!

  • Turkey Bond

    I’d never think Daniel ends up in Turkey.

  • Elle

    @Esra.
    I know Istanbul is called a mosaic city. The city’s mosaic culture results in great diversity in the arts. The mosque called Blue Mosque, and Hagia Sophiā and the old city, were traditional enough for me!!

  • mimi

    Gorgeous!!

  • Esra

    @Elle: Do you know my uncle was the Muslim official of a mosque who summons the faithful to prayer from a minaret five times a day? ;)

  • Mike

    @Turkey Bond:
    Everything is on schedule. They come back to the Pinewood, then they will wrap up the film by the end of May or early June.

  • Mendel

    thanks for all the links – the video is class! It’s so funny watching the ‘two Bonds’ (Dan and his stunt double) interact.

    “Daniel exposed himself to danger!!!!! presumably, he missed the train… :)”

    Hahaha, if this had been in London, one might have thought he couldn’t afford the high ticket prices and wanted a cheap ride (did I say ‘ride’??? ;)

    “Hopefully Guinness will be spying into Clooney’s house!”

    LOL! That was the first thing I thought when I heard about the fundraiser – I so hope she gets in!!!
