Daniel begins filming during the month of December, which is likely to last for a period of five months.
“We will begin shooting Bond 25 at Pinewood Studios in December with our partners at MGM and thrilled that Universal will be our international distributor.”
Previously, Daniel had stated that he would rather “cut his wrists” than making a comeback as Bond. However, after continuous refusals, he made his confirmation to make a comeback in the 25th Bond film.
Oscar-winner Danny Boyle, who is ready to direct the as-yet-unnamed movie, will make around £7 million.
“They’re [Bond movies] not really for me. The budgets are too big,” Boyle said in a conference with Collider during 2013. “I’m better working at a lower level of money really because I like that discipline of not having enough money to pull off whatever it is you want to pull off. So I wouldn’t be the best person to do those.”
A source in Los Angeles stated, “Daniel is raring to go out with a bang alongside Danny. They have been talking already about their visions and the practicalities once the cameras start rolling in December at Pinewood.”
“Daniel is worth every penny was given that Spectre made over $800 million and Skyfall over $1 billion before they sold DVD, streaming and TV rights.”
