    Yesterday, CBn
    reported that shooting of Casino Royale is currently taking
    place in the small community of Coral Harbour in the Bahamas. In yesterday’s
    article, CBn said that "the Defence Force, which is located on the site of the
    failed hotel has two large, highly mobile cranes, standing about 30 storeys high
    (whereas the hotel is about 15 storeys)".

    Thanks to Sam Cohen, CBn today is able to deliver more detailed
    information and exclusive spy shots from this filming location, plus additional
    pics from the already seen "Madagascar" set.

    The two cranes set up  that can be seen in the first picture are not
    only for camera panning shots, but are also to be used as props.
    Attention: Spoilers! Highlight to read!

    During the chase scene at the hotel, one character will run
    along the top of one crane and leap to the other, sans harness. The climax of the chase scene
    is going to takine place at the hotel and the "bad guy", most
    propably "Bomber", will get in a bulldozer and chase James
    Bond in that. Bond will end up pinned in between the wall of the hotel and the
    oncoming bulldozer, and the bulldozer will slam into the wall and cause the wall
    to crash down, making it appear that Bond has been crushed.

    leads to the conclusion that the scenes currently being shot at the Defence
    Force are going to double for Madagascar as well. Another hint are the signs on
    the construction sites (more images in the CBn Image Gallery), which are all in
    French. The French language is the official language spoken in Madagascar.

    As hinted above, CBn is also able to bring you more images from the already
    seen Madagascar set, showing mostly abandoned and broken-down slums.

    All pictures
    can be seen in the CBn Image Gallery!

    A big thanks to Sam Cohen. Stay tuned to CBn for more
    coverage from the Bahamas to come.
