Delay to Bond 25 start

Bond 25 cinematographer reveals shooting starts in April.

It appears that filming on Bond 25 has been put back until April if comments by cinematographer Linus Sandgren are correct.

On Twitter yesterday Steven Weintraub,’s editor-in-chief yesterday, revealed that he’d run into Bond 25’s cinematographer, Linus Sandgren. Sandgren told Weintraub he was “prepping Bond 25 with Cary Joji Fukunaga” to “start shooting in April with a February 14, 2020 release date”:

While it means that the filming schedule will be tighter than at first planned don’t forget that Daniel Craig was out of action for several weeks during SPECTRE. He took time out after a knee operation for an injury sustained during filming. It doesn’t follow that a delay means the release will need to be pushed back. According to the tweet the release is still on schedule.

Hopefully the extra time means the script has been kicked into really good shape before the cameras roll – or whatever it is that digital cameras do these days.
