The first footage from the set on 007.com was released with an exclusive image of Daniel Craig in action in the Austrian mountains.
“We have to deliver an amazing sequence and this is going to be one of the major action sequences of the movie,” explains Associate Producer Gregg Wilson. “It’s going to be spectacular and Austria seemed to offer everything that we needed to pull it off.”
The behind the scenes footage includes Daniel Craig as James Bond 007, shooting another man after a struggle on a mountain in the snow.
The footage also features Léa Seydoux, Dave Bautista and director Sam Mendes.
“The thing Sam and I talked about was how we are going to top SKYFALL”, says Production Designer Dennis Gassner.
“We are going to continue the history of the Bond films, making things that are exciting for the audience to look at and what could be more exciting than to be on top of the world.”
Academy Award-winning Austrian actor Christoph Waltz is joining the cast, while Andrew Scott — Moriarty from BBC series Sherlock — will play a government official.
Seydoux and Monica Bellucci are the new “Bond girls.”
The film is due for release in November 2015.
