All Roads lead to Rome, even for James Bond


Secret agent James Bond is back, but this time in Rome

Our favorite spy is back with a bang and will be parachuting into the Eternal City for the 24th film in the popular James Bond series. From February 19 to March 12, lucky locals and tourists will witness outrageous stunts and racing cars during filming of the next 007 thriller.


Several locations have been scouted out, including Ponte Sisto, the fifteenth-century bridge connecting Trastevere to the other side of the city, where Bond will gallantly land after parachuting from a helicopter. Borgo Vittorio, near the Vatican, will set the scene for the high-speed car chase, complete with a Fiat 500 crash.  Since one car race wouldn’t be enough, Bond will also zoom down Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, then navigate the streets of Lungotevere before a car plunges into the Tiber River. After concluding filming in Rome, the set will move south to Italy's version of Versailles, the Royal Palace of Caserta, in Campania. 

This will be the fourth appearance of Daniel Craig as James Bond after Skyfall (2012), Quantum of Solace (2008) and Casino Royale (2006). 

The film is expected to hit theaters in late 2015.
