    Dr. Shatterhand's Botanical Garden has been updated with coverage and pictures from the Press Conference in Cádiz yesterday. So be sure to pay a visit to Dr. Shatterhand!

    OO7 rolled into Cádiz, Spain Wednesday as Eon Productions prepared to change the beautiful coastal town into another Bond historical location. Pierce Brosnan, Halle Berry, Rick Yune were on hand to answer questions, as well as producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.

    Brosnan, who looked dapper in his light colored sport jacket, sat next to his co-star Halle Berry. Speaking to the press about the developments of his character in the 20th OO7 epic, "Die Another Day".

    "Well thanks to Barbara and Michael I have always been allowed to speak to the screenwriters," said Brosnan. I think you will find in this film that we have gone into areas of the Bond character persona that we have never seen before. We have pushed the envelope out. We have a director, Lee Tamahori, who is, dare I say it, ‘cutting edge’, and has the same veracity of film making that Martin Campbell had in GoldenEye"

    Halle Berry, who plays Jinx, went on to say, "I hope to get some really good food. Because I have heard that Cadiz has the best seafood and fish here. And beside that I hope to learn about the city, get a little bit of culture. And, if I am brave enough, get to swim in the sea, maybe?"

    Brosnan gave a little smirk at Halle Spoiler Warning (Highlight To Read) since the scene she is referring to is where Bond and Jinx meet. Similar to the beach scene in Dr. No where Honey Ryder meets OO7, Bond and Jinx also exchange loving glances at each other in the surf. “You look at me and the fireworks begin,” said Brosnan referring to their love scene.

    Producer Michael G. Wilson, sitting next to actor Emilio Echevarría, also explained why they chose Cádiz. "We were going to look for a location in Spoiler Warning (Highlight To Read) Cuba, but unfortunately, we couldn’t film there. And we looked throughout all of Spain and Europe and even Mexico itself but we ended up coming here because this is a beautiful place and we can make it look like Cuba.

    Now the main question is Spoiler Warning (Highlight To Read) why Rick Yune has a shaved head? It has been rumoured that it may have something to do with the rumoured plot of “Die Another Day which includes a Facial Transformation, but this is just speculation. No doubt it is important as the pictures from the pre-title sequence did show that Rick had a full head of hair at the time..

    Feel free to discuss this news in this thread of the Die Another Day Forums.
