Following the not so good news about the plunged Aston Martin car used for "Quantum of Solace", an exhilarating news came from the superspy film's production. In a press conference held in Tremosine on Sunday, April 20, second unit director Dan Bradley explained that the first 15 minutes opening sequence of the James Bond's 22nd film will involve a dramatic car chase scene followed by gunfight.
The particular scene is going to expose Bond's Aston Martin DBS as well as the bad guy's Black Alfa Romeo 159 in a car chase along Gardesana which is the road around the Garda Lake between Malcesine, Limone and Tremosine. It involved 40 stuntmen, 6 Daniel Craig's doubles, many Aston Martin and a Black Alfa Romeo. The shooting in Gargnano and Limone will still continue until April 25. The details on the reports have been e-mailed by BadTaste.it.
Concerning whether Craig himself would be involved in the filming of the scene, the message noted that the 40-year-old actor has been resting in London. However, he will join the production to take some reverse shots if the weather is good. The co-star of Eva Green in "Casino Royale" also is expected to shoot important scenes, which is said to be involving a flying camera, in Carrara that will be taken in between April 25 and May 13.
Concerning the damaged Aston Martin, it has been clarified that the vehicle is not one of the cars used for the filming. Supposedly, it was prepared for the press conference. Hence, it won't generate any problems or delay on the shooting. "Quantum" will bow in theaters on November 7.
