news of a
press conference to be held this evening in Prague, CBn is able to deliver
you some more exclusive pictures from the Bahamas sets of Casino Royale!
Harry Wyckoff, our own man at station B, has returned with more detailed
information and more explicit photos.
If you remember CBn’s
on the Bahamas locations, you will surely have memorized the set called "Royal
Bahamas Defence Force" (see map again
here). An abandoned hotel is now heavily fitted out with large cranes, and a
bunch of additional metal frames, about 100ft high. According to Harry, this set is now called Madagascar and will double for the
island nation in the Indian Ocean.
The set will be used in a fairly major sequence that has also been described
in the leaked
script summary a few days ago. The sequence that will be filmed there is a
chase through the ‘town’ (the set), followed by a chase through the jungle,
culminating in a pretty major stunt involving all the large metal frameworks
mentioned previously. These frames are the beginnings of a ‘hotel’ which will be
the basis for a ‘jumping from hotel window’ stunt at the end of the chase scene.
All 10 set pictures can be found in the
CBn image gallery.
Thanks again to Harry Wyckoff.
