Daniel Craig Speeds Down the River Thames in First Shots From New Bond Film ‘Spectre’

Bond Girls
Meet the sultry vixens of the James Bond series.
Daniel Craig started off his day speeding down the River Thames as he filmed the first scenes from the upcoming James Bond film Spectre this morning.

Craig, who plays the 007 agent, was joined by Rory Kinnear who plays MI6’s Bill Tanner.

Dressed in typical suave James Bond fashion in a heavy winter coat with leather gloves, the actor can be seen gripping on to a bar as the boat speeds up and down the river in front of London’s famous Secret Intelligence Service MI6 Headquarters.

Filming for Spectre (which stands for Special Executive for Counter-intelligence,Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion), started last week and sees Craig reprise his role as Bond for the fourth time alongside Andrew Scott, Lea Seydoux, Monica Bellucci, and Christoph Waltz.

The plot details officially released so far read: “A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. 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.”

An early version of the screenplay for the new James Bond movie Spectre was among the material stolen in a massive cyber attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment.

Filmmakers Eon Productions says it’s concerned third parties who have received the screenplay might seek to publish it.

Producers of the James Bond films said they learnt on Saturday morning that an early version of the Spectre script was among material stolen and made public by hackers who infiltrated computers at the Sony studio.
