James Bond 25 LEAK: Daniel Craig will start shooting his final 007 movie in THIS countryJAMES BOND 25, Daniel Craig’s final 007 film, starts shooting in Canada next year – according to franchise regular Stefan Zürcher.By GEORGE SIMPSONPUBLISHED: 14:49, Thu, Oct 18, 2018 | UPDATED: 14:55, Thu, Oct 18, 2018
Last month the official James Bond social media accounts revealed the new director of Bond 25 would be Cary Joji Fukunaga.
Following Danny Boyle’s departure, it’s not surprising that the hunt for the new director has meant filming has been pushed back from December this year to March 2019.
Details concerning Bond 25 remain heavily under-wraps, but now a franchise regular has let slip which country the shoot will begin in.
tefan Zürcher started as a stuntman in 1969’s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service and has worked as a production manager among other roles across 11 Bond films.
Most recently the Swiss film producer was an assistant director on Quantum of Solace and snow consultant on Spectre.
So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he’s involved with Bond 25.
Speaking with Berner Zeitung, he said: “Yes, there are discussions about cooperation for the next Bond movie.
“Recently, a director has finally been found, and shooting in Canada is scheduled for next March.”

However, the 73-year-old admitted: “I do not want to spend too many inches of my remaining life in an ice desert.”
Asked by Metro if she was concerned about Bond 25 after director Boyle and screenwriter John Hodge left the project, the producer seemed defiantly unfazed.
Broccoli replied: “Concerned about what? No, it’s film-making. We’re very excited about Bond and can’t wait.”
Broccoli has also confirmed that Bond would not be played by a woman in the future.
Speaking with The Guardian, she said: “Bond is male.
“He’s a male character. He was written as a male and I think he’ll probably stay as a male.
“And that’s fine. We don’t have to turn male characters into women.”
Bond 25 will be released in cinemas on February 14, 2020.
