Istanbul to Host Secret Agent 007 on 50th Anniversary

As the clock ticks down to the 50th anniversary of 1962’s “Dr. No” -- the first James Bond film -- secret agent 007 is set to touch down in İstanbul for the filming of the latest Bond blockbuster.

Scheduled for a November 2012 release, the film’s producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson visited Turkey this week for discussions with Culture and Tourism Minister Ertuğrul Günay, the Anatolia news agency reported.

Günay revealed that one of the locations in which filming is to take place is the historical Sultanahmet neighborhood. “There are, however, a number of locations, including the waterside and shores of the Bosporus, in consideration for the 10-15 minutes of the movie that is to be filmed in Turkey,” he said.
