A location in Norway has been scouted by filmmakers for Bond 24, according to our friends at James Bond Norway.
Australian filmmaker and facilitator Jason Roberts confirmed to Dagbladet newspaper that Eon Productions has assessed Svalbard as a possible location.
In the past Roberts has contributed to a number of productions such as The Golden Compass film on Svalbard. He is quoted as saying Eon initially wanted images of Svalbard, but recent script changes mean filming will instead take place in the Austrian Alps.
Roberts also pointed out that the lack of an incentive scheme in Norway makes it difficult for the country to secure big budget productions such as Bond 24.
However, editor of James Bond Norway, Morten Steingrimsen told me on twitter: “as I understand it, not all locations have been found in Austria. Fingers crossed to Norway.”
