a little bit older but still interesting I think:

Rains thwart filming of Bond flick at Inca site
Producers for the upcoming James Bond movie "Quantum of Solace" said on Friday they have scratched plans to film near the Inca ruins at Machu Picchu -- Peru's top tourist site -- due to bad weather.
Filming for the 22nd Bond movie, starring Daniel Craig as the British super spy, had been set to start early this month in Cuzco, a city in southeastern Peru near the ancient Incan citadel.
"They decided not to come because of climatic conditions. They couldn't be sure it wouldn't rain and they have very tight time," said Margarita Morales, director of Iguana Productions, a Peruvian company hired to assist with filming....

It's a pity! Near Cuzco you can find the original condor who gave the inspiration for Daniel's tattoo.

'Quantum of Solace' Shooting At Chilean Paranel Observatory

Action will also take place at the Paranel airstrip in the Atacama Desert

Written by Devin Zydel on 24 Mar, 2008


A new press release announces that the 22nd James Bond film, Quantum of Solace, has moved into the Paranal Observatory located in the Atacama Desert in Chile.

The location hosts ESO’s (the intergovernmental European Organisation for Astronomical Research in the Southern Hemisphere) Very Large Telescope and will serve as a hideout for villain Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric). The full release:

A Giant Of Astronomy and A Quantum Of Solace

Cerro Paranal, the 2600m high mountain in the Chilean Atacama Desert that hosts ESO’s Very Large Telescope, will be the stage for scenes in the next James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace.

Looking akin to Mars, with its red sand and lack of vegetation, the Atacama Desert is thought to be the driest place on Earth. Cerro Paranal is home to ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT), which, with its array of four giant 8.2-m individual telescopes, is the world’s most advanced optical observatory. The high-altitude site and extreme dryness make excellent conditions for astronomical observations.

“We needed a unique site for a unique set of telescopes, and we found it at Paranal,” said Andreas Kaufer, ESO’s Paranal Director. “We are very excited that the Bond production team have also chosen this location.”

The excellent astronomical conditions at Paranal come at a price, however. In this forbidding desert environment, virtually nothing can grow outside. The humidity drops below 10%, there are intense ultraviolet rays from the sun, and the high altitude leaves people short of breath. Living in this extremely isolated place feels like visiting another planet.

To make it possible for people to live and work here, a hotel or “Residencia” was built in the base camp, allowing them to escape from the arid outside environment. Here, returning from long shifts at the VLT and other installations on the mountain, they can breathe moist air and relax, sheltered from the harsh conditions outside. The Residencia’s award-winning design, including an enclosed tropical garden and pool under a futuristic domed roof, gives its interior a feeling of open space within the protective walls - this is a true “haven in the desert”.

It is this unique building that serves as the backdrop for the James Bond filming.

Quantum of Solace producer, Michael G. Wilson said: “The Residencia of Paranal Observatory caught the attention of our director, Marc Forster and production designer, Dennis Gassner, both for its exceptional design and its remote location in the Atacama desert. It is a true oasis and the perfect hide-out for Dominic Greene, our villain, whom 007 is tracking in our new James Bond film.”

In addition to the shooting at the Residencia, further action will take place at the Paranal airstrip.

The film crew present on Paranal includes Englishman Daniel Craig, taking again the role of James Bond, French actor Mathieu Amalric, leading lady Olga Kurylenko, from the Ukraine, as well as acclaimed Mexican actors, Joaquin Cosio and Jesus Ochoa. This cast from across Europe and Latin America mirrors the international staff that works for ESO at Paranal.

After leaving Paranal at the end of the week, the film crew will shoot in other locations close to Antofagasta. Other sequences have been filmed in Panama and, following the Chilean locations, the unit will be travelling to Italy and Austria before returning to Pinewood Studios near London in May.
The top notch acting in the Weisz/Craig/Spall 'Betrayal' is emotionally true, often v funny and its beautifully staged with filmic qualities..

it talks about one of the locations, cobija, and that is being ready for DC and the rest of the staff to arrive. also they interviewed a woman who lives there, and she talked about her difficulties and so. also they're going to re-build (?) some houses and use a football 'field' as a cemetery...
