ROME – One of the most ancient cities of world has been included in the 24th James Bond movie and now Italian capital city will host the film crew in 2015, PakistanTribe learnt from international media reports.
According to the details, the seven hills of Rome will provide the backdrop to 007’s latest adventures.
In his fourth reprisal of the silver screen’s most famous secret agent, British actor Daniel Craig is set to get caught up in several high-speed chases around the city’s history-lined alleyways, main thoroughfares and river banks.
But the highlight of his trip to Rome will reportedly be a pinpoint landing, after parachuting out of a helicopter, on the Ponte Sisto, a narrow 15th-century pedestrian bridge across the River Tiber that is itself a replacement for an earlier walkway dating back to the fourth century.
Details of Rome’s cameo role in the upcoming blockbuster, which is due to start filming at London’s Pinewood Studios before the end of the year, were leaked to Italian media.
The film is to be directed by Britain’s Sam Mendes, the acclaimed theatre director responsible for the phenomenally successful 23rd installment of the Bond story, “Skyfall”.
