MI6 is reporting that Bond 22 is set to start shooting this coming Thursday, January 3rd, 2008. Director Marc Forster confirmed the date in an earlier interview.

Forster went on to say that Craig's interpretation of Bond will pick up where the character left off in Casino Royale. The film will be more of a journey into the inner being than it will be about globe hopping around the world. Forster stated, "When Bond began in the Connery days, travel was a luxury not everyone could afford. Today, the world has become smaller. If Bond goes to a beach with palm trees it's almost banal now. The only interesting trip remains the journey inwards, deep in to the psyche".
