With filming on the next Bond film having begun only a few days ago, there is already a small flurry of information about the film hitting online.
First off is the official announcement of Gemma Arterton being cast in the film as a character simply named “Fields.” Rumors had been floating for a few weeks that she had been up for a part in the film, which will pick up shortly after where 2006’s Casino Royale left off. Although no details about her character were released, the Hollywood Reporter quotes a production company representative as saying “it’s a nice-sized role.” Bond fansite MI-6 has received word however that Arterton’s role is not that of the main heoine of the film.
MI-6 has also done a good job digging up paparazzi pictures from the film’s London exterior location shoot, getting good shots of both Dame Judi Dench, as Bond’s boss M and Daniel Craig as the suave secret agent James Bond.
Although filming got underway almost a month later than was originally scheduled, Bond 22 is still set for a November 7, 2008 debut.
