James Bond No Time To That star Daniel Craig is ready for action as he prepares to make his first scenes in southern Italy as an iconic secret agent
The spectators remained shocked and very miserable on Monday when Daniel Craig prepared to record his first scenes as James Bond in the Italian city of Matera.
The 51-year-old actor, who returns in the new film No Time To Die, wore a cream-colored two-piece suit as he found his way to the outdoor set, where he was accompanied by the upcoming film director, Cary Fukanaga.
Filming began in August in the southern Italian city, built on a steep rock, with the second unit of production featuring stunt doubles and drivers to photograph exciting chase scenes around the historic, winding streets.

But Craig was present to film his own scenes as the week began and his presence caused inevitable crowds among the locals.
The actor was surrounded when he worked with director Fukanaga for the first time since the completion of his scenes in London, where many fans wanted to document his arrival by taking photos.
His presence came on what seemed to be a busy day for the American filmmaker, who looked intense when he seriously discussed the daily schedule with his production team.

With a wide-brimmed hat that kept him cool, Fukunaga finally withdrew from his team before stepping on stone steps, where he seemed to be considering their next move.
Craig and Fukanaga are accompanied in Italy by leading lady Léa Seydoux – who returns as Madeleine Swann's love interest – although the French actress was not present because filming continued on Monday.
Instead, they were accompanied by Bond & # 39; s legendary Aston Martin, where the car driven by a stuntman while it was being filmed paves its way through a purpose-built tunnel.

The car, a vintage DB5, has been a prominent feature since production landed in Italy, where the Aston Martin was either chased or chased itself in other vehicles in many of the new movie's newest scenes.
No Time To Die was co-written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who was brought on board to scatter her magic for the 25th film in the film franchise based on Ian Fleming's hit novels.
The film was previously given the working title Shatterhand, but the title has since been adapted to Bond's more iconic film titles.
