Topic: Now's the time to start on a new Bond film!

Think about it. Cities in lockdown, strapped for cash. Deserted.

Time for the Bond team to roll up with a film crew in London, Paris, Rome or what have you and blag their way in with a super chase, or more simply, just film the empty vistas and - ah, this is a shame as he's no longer Bond - film Danny Craig ambling along without having to bar the crowds of gawpers.

They could still do this....  ajb007/amazed Though it's No Time To Fly, they could have Danny stroll along Trafalgar Square, no probs.

Maybe dub the extras in afterwards.

Admittedly the Rome chase in Spectre always did look like it was filmed in lockdown.

In most Bonds, the use of extras doesn't really work. See the Vegas car chase in DAF, where crowds line the route, or in Doges Square in Moonraker, where they've all turned out to see an anonymous secret agent. Piss poor.
Now they could get round that.

It reminds me of the Times Square opening of Vanilla Sky. A hell of a scene where Cruise goes on a run finding it deserted, but it's obviously filmed at dawn with no sun in the sky. They could reshoot that now and it would be okay.

They've already done this in Rome. Didn't you watch SPECTRE?  ajb007/lol

Darn! Note to self: Must read posts more carefully,  ajb007/crap
I'll try to reply seriously then. With no script this is playing with dice. Instead they should spend the time developing scripts and searching for the next Bond actor.
