'Spectre' will feature a high-speed car chase through Rome between an Aston Martin and a Jaguar
The supercars of new Bond film Spectre are unveiled in a new behind-the-scenes video from the film’s set.
In the video, director Sam Mendes reveals that the 24th Bond film will feature a “cat and mouse game through the night-time streets of Rome at great speed between two of the fastest cars in the world”, one an Aston Martin, the other a Jaguar.
The scene will see Daniel Craig’s 007 in his Aston Martin being chased by Dave Bautista’s character Mr. Hinx in the Jaguar. “It’s one of those scenes that’s going to very iconic I think,” Guardians Of The Galaxy actor Bautista says in the video. Watch below.
Sam Mendes started shooting Spectre in December shortly after the title and main cast of the 24th Bond film were announced. Joining Daniel Craig’s 007 and Bautista’s Mr. Hinx are double Oscar winner Christoph Waltz in an unspecified role, former Sherlock star Andrew Scott as a member of MI6 called Denbigh, Blue Is The Warmest Colour‘s Lea Seydoux as a Bond girl named Madeleine Swann, Italian actress Monica Bellucci as another female lead, Lucia Sciarra, and Mexican actress Stephanie Sigman as a character named Estrella.
Also returning alongside Daniel Craig are his Skyfall castmates Naomie Harris (Moneypenny), Ben Whishaw (Q), Rory Kinnear (Bill Tanner) and Ralph Fiennes (M). The film’s official plot synopsis teases: “In Spectre, a cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organisation. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE.”
In February Craig injured his knee while shooting a fight scene for the film but he has since made a full recovery. Meanwhile, it was reported last month (March) that the Welsh Assembly recently turned down a request by the film’s producers to shoot scenes in the Senedd debating chamber in Cardiff Bay.
