James Bond is heading to Jamaica after the island was first featured in the 007 films back in 1962.

The famous fictional spy will be landing on the Caribbean hotspot for Bond 25, which is also Daniel Craig’s last ever role as the moody agent.

According to the Daily Mail, the location has been confirmed as ‘principal filming will take place in Jamaica and at studios in the UK.’

It has also been reported that scenes will be shot in Italy and Greece too, but this has yet to be confirmed.

It won’t be the first time that James Bond heads to Jamaica either, with the island previously featuring heavily in the first ever Bond film back in 1962, Dr No.

Jamaica was also the chief setting for the debut outing of Roger Moore in the 1973 film, Live and Let Die.

As Bond 25 sets off to film in fancy locations, fans have been debating online over which rumoured working title they prefer.

Ever since we heard reports of the working title Shatterhand, Bond fans were left utterly disappointed. It was later reported that the movie will apparently be called Eclipse.

But now one rumour has replaced another, and it is safe to say we prefer the latter.

The new 007 film will enter production next month in Pinewood Studios in London, England, as well as Matera, Italy – but it’s the working title that has us a little bit rattled.

Could Eclipse really be it? Or will it just be another elaborate distraction away from the real title for Bond 25?

The news of the name came not long after it was announced that the release date of 8 April 2020 was pushed back from 14 February of that year following a major rewrite of the script.

And it’s not the first time the project has been delayed, after there was a slight hitch in production when director Danny Boyle stepped down and was replaced with Maniac director Cary Fukunaga.

To make his mark on the story and correct some perceived wrongs with what he was working with, Cary re-wrote the script and revealed a little about the full-circle story arc.

‘In terms of what I can bring to change the character, Bond is on a character arc that started with Casino Royale, and I will be carrying that on,’ he previously told Inquirer.net. ‘There will be changes, I am sure. As in any story, a character has to change in order [to have] a narrative.’

Bond 25 will be in cinemas 8 April, 2020.
