OO7 coming to Dubrovnik?

After the filming of Game of Thrones and Star Wars, one of the most famous film series in history could be the next major coup for popular Croatian city of Dubrovnik…

Whilst the Star Wars crew will be in Dubrovnik in two weeks to start shooting the follow-up to the blockbuster The Force Awakens, the city’s Major has revealed on Monday that negotiations are underway to bring 007 to town.

“We are negotiating at the moment. We would need to pay. Negotiations about money is going on, and it’s not easy to negotiate with James Bond, but we have started,” Dubrovnik Mayor Andro Vlahušić told RTL.

The James Bond spy film series is one of the longest continually-running film series in history, having been in on-going production from 1962 to the present (with a six-year hiatus between 1989 and 1995). In that time Eon Productions has produced 24 films with a combined gross of over $7 billion.

Last year the picturesque Istrian town of Rovinj was used as the setting for Heineken’s global campaign for the James Bond film ‘Spectre’. The high adrenaline ad saw the famous spy in a high-speed boat chase, with a montage of Rovinj featuring in some scenes. Soon the real thing could be coming to Croatia.
