Rumors say that the British actor Daniel Craig was filming in the village of Sæbø in Sunnmmøre last month and not unexpectedly got a lot of attention in Norwegian media. Producers of a satiric show for the national Norwegian Broadcasting Company, NRK, even set up an incredible prank that fooled the country’s newspapers. But facts are that the James Bond 25 has been filmed in Norway.
First-look footage from the filming of the new James Bond movie has shown a dramatic chase sequence with a mysterious new villain. Several vans labelled ‘Pinewood’ and ‘Movie Makers’ were in the village at the west-coast of Norway. Independent sources confirmed that the crew of 120 people was there to provide services in connection with filming.

After the new James Bond movie started filming in the country, all eyes have been on whether Daniel Craig, in the titular role, would actually be seen on that particular set.
James Bond 25 in Norway
Independent sources say that the working title of James Bond 25 is ‘Eclipse’. Facts are that scenes have been shot both outside the capital Oslo and on the west-coast of Norway. But when NRK stated that the star had been spotted in a pub in Oslo, it was fake news. ‘’I have no comment on what is going to happen here’’ said line producer, Per Henry Borch.
As it stands, the genuine Craig has not been spotted in the country.

Out on April 2020
Footage from the shootings shows a masked man, who appears to be injured, pursuing a young girl in the snow while shooting at her. The film will see Daniel Craig return to the role of 007, in potentially his last Bond outing, and Ralph Fiennes back as M. James Bond 25 is out on April 8, 2020, and no title or full casting details have been unveiled just yet. However, last month, it was reported that Bohemian Rhapsody star Rami Malek was in negotiations to play the film’s villain.
The film will be directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, who took over from Danny Boyle after he departed the project due to “creative differences” last August.
