Filming in Jamaica
"It has definitely been an honor to be chosen" to direct this 25th opus, said Cary Fukunaga, the first American to tackle a "James Bond" component, the majority of directors having been British. Stating that filming had already started in Norway and Jamaica, the director said that "the team would return, after Jamaica, to London".
Producer Barbara Broccoli said the 25th installment would begin with a James Bond "taking advantage of Jamaica".
