James Bond is back in London.
BBC News reports production for the upcoming film “Spectre,” the latest iteration of the James Bond franchise, took over the famed River Thames this past weekend.
In what is promising to be another globetrotting adventure for the fictional spy, the cast and crew put together what looks to be a high-speed boat chase of some sort.
The report actually states, “Some bridges over the Thames were temporarily closed to the public as film crew warned pedestrians from getting too close to the action on Sunday night.”
Twitter was of course all over the event, which offered brief glimpses of actor Daniel Craig who seemed to be in great spirits despite what we assume will be a scene featuring your usual aquatic bedlam:

And BBC Newsbeat also covered the shoot in various images:
The next chapter of Bond, like those before it, will feature various locales around the world. While the latest shoot may have been a homecoming of sorts for the character, “Spectre” has taken the crew all around the world on what has been a tumultuous production.
Previously we brought you word that the crew was taken to task for its behavior on a flight en route to Mexico.
On a far more sublime note, production afforded Internet denizens a glimpse of a high-speed chase throughout Rome, which featured a road battle between an Aston Martin and a Jaguar.
We will have to wait patiently until Nov. 6 to see how each scene unfolds, but so far we have an inkling that the movie will cover a wide swath of the world.
And, as Bond fans are well aware, each location will serve as a backdrop for action-packed sequences of just about every variety.
From Mexico to Rome and back to London, James Bond will serve as the most captivating tour guide in modern cinema.
