    Mexican newspaper El Universal reports that the James Bond crew will be headed to Machu Picchu in Cusco, Peru, this March to shoot scenes for November’s Quantum of Solace. The scenes will reportedly involve the spectacular 550-year-old Incan Citadel of Machu Picchu.

    Living in Peru states that filming will occur between 2 March and 12 March.

    The reports suggest a production crew of approximately 250 people will be required, while it is not yet known whether Daniel Craig, or any of the film’s stars, will be present for filming.

    Peruvian company Iguana Productions will apparently lend assistance during filming – reportedly with help from Peruvian director Luis Llosa.

    Meanwhile, La Tercera reports that location scouting is currently underway in Chile. Stillking Films, the Czech company that co-produced Casino Royale is reportedly visiting the Antofagasta region of the country.

    Shooting is said to commence on 23 March and should take no longer than 10 days.
