Daniel Craig and Rory Kinnear braved the waters of London’s River Thames on Monday, shooting a scene for the 24th James Bond film, Spectre.

Craig, as 007, and Kinnear, as MI6’s Bill Tanner, raced along in the speed boat, possibly on their way to the Secret Service M16 Headquarters in the British capital. Looking dapper as usual in character as James Bond, Craig sported a black coat, gray pants, a navy scarf and leather gloves.

In addition to London, Spectre will be filmed in Rome, Mexico City, Morocco and the Alps. Other stars of the latest installment in the franchise include Monica Bellucci (Lucia Sciarra), Christoph Waltz (Oberhauser), Léa Seydoux (Madeleine Swann), Ralph Fiennes (M), Naomie Harris (Miss Moneypenny), Ben Whishaw (Q) and David Bautista (Mr. Hinx).

‘We’ve got an amazing cast and, I think, a better script than we had last time,” Craig said earlier this year, talking about Spectre. “We started something in Skyfall, it felt like a beginning of something. This feels like a continuation of that. We’re going to put all of those elements in, and much more.”

Referring to the title of the forthcoming Bond film, director Sam Mendes said, “Those of you who have some knowledge of the Bond franchise and of the legend of Bond will probably have some idea what that refers to, but I couldn’t possibly comment.”

As it happens, the title stands for Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion, an organization led by the villainous Ernst Stavro Blofeld.

Spectre is slated to hit theaters sometime in 2015.
