2015, the new James Bond film , about the special agent 007, will turn to Rome.
The production will be in town by mid-February 2015 to film the location at night, with challenges in the car on the Nomentana way to the neighborhood of Montesacro.
The title of this new chapter is “Spectre”. Some scenes of the 24th film in the series 007, whose first appearance in the cinema dates back to 1962, will be shot in Rome. The filming has just started in London with actor Daniel Craig in the role of James Bond for the fourth time.
Directed by Sam Mendes ( photo below), Rome is one of the main location, between Mexico City, Morocco and the Austrian Alps.
During the first 2 weeks of March ,for at least five days, the Ponte Sisto, om the Tiber, will be transformed into a movie set and will not be feasible during filming for safety reasons.
March 12 will be the day that will focus the filming of “Spectre” around Ponte Sisto, so the traffic in that week, will be intense or paralyzed near the set.
