    Disaster struck Pinewood back on 30 July 2006 when a massive fire burned down the famous 007 Stage. After being given the ‘OK’ to start rebuilding the stage, a completion date was set for ‘earlly 2007.’

    For the first time, pictures of the brand new ‘Albert R. Broccoli 007 Stage’ have been revealed here on James Bond Nederland.

    The 007 Stage is the same size as it previously was, but ‘modern building techniques and improved internal design have increased the usable area inside the stage from 45,424 square feet to 57,000 square feet,’ according to a report from September 2006.

    Initially constructed for 1977’s The Spy Who Loved Me, this was the second time the stage had to be rebuilt because of fire damage. It was previously destroyed during the filming of Ridley Scotts Legend. It was rebuilt in time for the 1985 Bond film, A View To A Kill.
