There’s the calm before the storm as Daniel Craig has been filming the new Bond movie in the Caribbean. The James Bond depicter was spotted on the set of the movie, which is tentatively called “Bond 25”, in Jamaica, which producer Barbara Broccoli previously described as a “spiritual home” for the character.
Unlike his character’s signature suave looks, Craig dressed down during the filming in a gray T-shirt and blue shorts. In pictures obtained by The Sun, he’s holding a harpoon likely to catch fish while walking on the dock along the water, and was seen carrying his big catch. Seemingly feeling threatened by an imminent danger, he’s later seen trading his harpoon for a small gun and pointing at someone unseen.
In between takes, the 51-year-old hunk was chilling on the beach. He was puffing a cigarette and feeding a cat with the raw fish, while the crew gathered around him to prepare for the shooting. He was also seen heading to a boat.
A source says Craig wasn’t really friendly with the crew on the set. “The cast and crew have been working very long, exhaustive hours. Daniel seemed a bit glum,” so the source claims. “He kept himself to himself between takes – just hanging around with his security guards.”
Craig is joined by Lea Seydoux (as Madeleine), Ralph Fiennes (as M), Naomie Harris (as Moneypenny), Ben Whishaw (as Q), Rory Kinnear (as Tanner) and Jeffrey Wright (as Felix from “Casino Royale” and “Quantum of Solace”) in the returning cast. Rami Malek is cast as the villain, with Dali Benssalah, Billy Magnussen, Ana de Armas, Lashana Lynch and David Dencik taking other new roles.
Broccoli revealed Bond “is actually enjoying himself in Jamaica,” at the start of the film. “We start the story here and we built an extraordinary house for him,” she went on talking about the setting.

According to the official plot description, “Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.”
Cary Joji Fukunaga serves behind the lens in addition to writing the script. Michael G. Wilson also produces the movie, which eyes an April 8, 2020 release date in the United States.
