If Bond were to go to Canadia he would meet the nicest villains and henchmen in the world...no doubt.... ajb007/biggrin

Re: Locations - suggestions, rumours and reports

But he has a point.  LA has been filmed so often it doesn't feel exotic to many people.  They would rater see Bond in Tokyo or Moscow.

Re: Locations - suggestions, rumours and reports

If Bond is going to go back to California, it should a city less seen on film, like San Diego. From photos I've seen it's a more beautiful and exotic city than LA (I've been to LA, and it's anything but exotic). It's also the second-biggest city in California.

Yeah, kind of.

I think that's the very reason it would be interesting to see Bond in LA. The city has been featured in so many other action movies but never in Bond. Seeing LA through Bond's eyes might be a fresh approach.

As you suggest down the line of this thread, though, I think San Diego would also be a great location for Bond.

I agree, NZ would be the place, he could be skiing down volcanoes, jet skiing, jet boating, mountaineering, and that all before lunch... cocktails in the Skytower before fighting hobbits.... also we would get the chance to enjoy the limelight for once down here in the land of the long white cloud

Three hotels that woud be perfect for Bond, especially in the company of a Bond girl:

Kakslauttanen Igloo West Village, Finland.

Manshausen Island Cabins, Norway. The man who runs the place is a former navy special forces soldier, and like most of them (it seems) his is also an artic explorer.

Re: Locations - suggestions, rumours and reports

I think the Iglo Village in Finland is the best candidate. It's easy to imagine Bond in the arms of some beauty in a location like this.

Re: Locations - suggestions, rumours and reports

Aparently Dubrovnik in Croatia is in advanced negotiations to be a location in Bond 25. Here it is:

You know when you see the shots like those from Number24 it makes you realise there are some truly beautiful places in this world even beyond the mainstream and the ones Bond has already introduced us too.

Totally agree I'd like to see Bond in a City he's never been too before.

I'm sure in the novel DAF Bond goes to Sacremento.  In the novel TMWTGG there is also a chase on the Everglades using Airboats.

I think Roturua, New Zealand could make a wicked Bond location.

The cable car would be a good location for an interesting take on the Moonraker cable car battle, if it's ever re-filmed.
