The official synopsis for James Bond 25 reads:
“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.”
The 007 production will be based at Pinewood Studios in the UK, and on location in London, Italy, Jamaica and Norway.
James Bond Producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said: “We’re thrilled to return to Jamaica with Bond 25, Daniel Craig’s fifth instalment in the 007 series, where Ian Fleming created the iconic James Bond character and Dr No and Live And Let Die were filmed.”
Phoebe Waller-Bridge is co-writing the film with Fukunaga, Neal Purvis & Robert Wade, Scott Z. Burns
