The company on the ground for SPECTRE in Morocco, Zak Productions, has revealed some details of the filming schedule, including news that Sam Mendes recently headed up a small unit to film Daniel Craig on board a train in Oujda, northeast Morocco.
Presumably the filming took place when it was reported that Daniel Craig was visiting Morocco, but an article in Variety reporting on Morocco has no further specifics. Oujda is described as “pretty spectacular” and surrounded by desert.
Filming will return to Morocco in June when the production is planning 10 days in Tangier and the desert. Such is the scale of the shoot that it will require four months to prepare.
The film is expected to boost the local economy after Mission Impossible 5 is said to have spent $30 million in the area.
