    I would also like to see Bond in Bukhara in Uzbekistan . It's an ancient city and an UNESCO site, and I think it's time EON took more chances with locations.

    Middle East is a good idea. Israel could be a good location too, never been there. Other options:

    - Oslo
    - Kyoto
    - Osaka
    - Buenos Aires
    - Antwerp
    - Barcelona
    - Lisbon
    - Cape Town
    - Panama City
    - Edinburgh

    So many places still to go. I hope they squeeze in a skiing scene in there too. It has been too long.

    I just want a thrilling location for a well staged car chase. I want something like what we got in RONIN where the cars are driving at high speeds through Nice and Paris, barreling through tight streets and doing some fantastic drifts and turns. Do something like that in a truly exotic setting and it'd really be quite spectacular.

    It's really too bad that we don't still have John Frankenheimer around to direct a new Bond film as he could definitely stage a car chase (unlike Mendes).

    With Croatia as a possible location. In a recent episode of
    The Grand Tour. They went to an area of waterfalls in
    Croatia, which looked beautiful.

    I just hope they don’t do a roof top chase in Dubrovnik ; or yet another fight on a train ,there’s been a few over the years

    Could it be the waterfalls in Krka?

    One of the flak towers constructed by Nazi Germany would be a imposing location for a CIA field office or SPECTRE lair.

    I think Bond should stay out of Italy for awhile. Especially Craig's Bond since he's been there in three of his last four films.

    Surely a Venice boat chase would most recall Moonraker? It's disappointing that Italy is the only location they can film Bond these days.

    I want some truly glamorous locations with no color filters. And let's see some palm trees. I think they should lay off Italy, Austria, and London for a while.

    So Croatia is in the news again as a possible Bond location. The mayor of Zagreb runs this up the flagpole every year at about this time.

    It would be good if Bond went to a completely new country or one that has been rarely visited. Africa or Australia could be good choices I think.

    Or Italy! ;)

    Just kidding. Australia is the big one, since it's a part of the world he has never visited. I could definitely be on board for Africa too. He has only north Africa, and there is so much else on that continent, with many very different countries. I don't count Madagascar in CR because it's obvious they didn't go anywhere near Africa.

    Constantine in Algerie is pefect for Bond :007)

    At first sight I thought it was the Avon Gorge in Bristol UK with Brunel's Clifton Suspension Bridge !
    Try flying a plane under that ! Or a powerboat chase along the River Avon to sunny Avonmouth!

    I'd love to see a return to Japan. Considering that the Craig run of films is a reboot, consider rebooting Tiger Tanaka (from YOLT) and utilizing him in a similar fashion (maybe cast Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa as Tiger). I'd like to see an action sequence on the bullet train done right, kinda like we got in the Christopher Lambert movie THE HUNTED. I didn't care for the bullet train scene in THE WOLVERINE all that much (too much cgi), so I think we're due for another go of it.

    I guess I want to see Bond vs ninjas. Is that so wrong?

    Another thing I'd like to see: a really good car chase with twisty roads. We have a lot of lakes here in Minnesota with some really fun roads around them (these lakes are beautiful with great scenery and some huge, opulent houses) and I've always thought that a car chase around some of the interconnected lakes would be really stunning. It's pretty common to see high end sports cars (Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and the like) driving around those lakes so there'd certainly be a precedent for filming a high speed chase around them.

    FALCON HEAVY TEST FLIGHT:

    Surely this would make the basis of a superb Bond film, more like the Moonraker Bond novel than film.

    That was the highlight of my day yesterday :) And I would love an adaptation of the MR novel - change the title, make the rocket a space mission that’s to be sabotaged, or redirected to a major city - a nuclear-powered spacecraft, naturally. It practically writes itself.

    Soon Hotel Svart (Black) will be buildt near the Svartisen (Black Ice) glacier in Northern Norway. Hotel Svart will be the first hotel in the world that produces more power than it consumes. I post about it because both the hotel and the landscape is worthy of Bond :007)

    This is SVALSAT, an instalation on Svalbard/Spitzbergen that has NO military use ABSOLUTLY DIDN'T come in handy during Operation Iraqi Freedom. No, Sir. That would be against the Svalbard Treaty of 1920 (the only of the treaties set up after WWI still in effect.)
    It might look good in a Bond film:

    This would be the second Norwegian surveilance radar station in a Bond movie, the first one was in TSWLM (Mågerø, near Oslo):

    One of the cars parked outside has some history. It's a Chrysler Coronado Limousine and was used by Norwegian Prime Ministers in the 1960's. At least one Labour party PM felt uncomfortable being driven around in an American limosine. It was later bought by the band Vazelina Bilopphøggers ("vaseline scrapyard"), a band that played rockabilly songs from the 50's and 60's with comic lyrics in Norwegian. It was used for touring, promotion and album covers:

    There's a garden in Northumberland, that's full of poisonous plants. If Bond 25 were to be named Shatterhand, then they could use material from YOLT novel and use the garden as Shatterhand's garden of death.

    I would like to see Bond go to Africa, particularly South Africa. Not the usual Morocco we always see in films.

    How 'bout Wakanda? That's gotten very popular of late. . .
