    The report claims the casting session occurred between 9:00am and 7:00pm at Teatro la Quadra. The article also reports El Casco Antiguo (the Old Quarters), la Bahía (the Bay) and Colón (Panama’s second-largest city) are among the shooting locations to be used.

    Candidates were reportedly required to dress comfortably and without accessories such as necklaces.

    The article also suggests Bond 22 is still without its Bond girl.

    Panama was first revealed as a Bond 22 location in September. Dame Judi Dench recently claimed her character would be headed there in Bond 22.

    In other Bond 22 news, the film’s director, Marc Forster, told the Huffington Post that he is looking forward to helming the next 007 adventure, particularly coming off the controversial movie, The Kite Runner. “It’s definitely a relief,” said the award-winning director. “It’s more about pop culture. It’s about entertaining. You’re not making an issue movie.”
