Millennium Dome may home Bond pic

$1.2 bil complex could be part of 007 plot

LONDON — The U.K.’s Millennium Dome may figure in the next James Bond film, perhaps even as a central element to the plot.

Both the 007 production company, Eon Prods., and the New Millennium Experience, the company in charge of building the giant millennium project at Greenwich in South London, have confirmed that the dome is under consideration as a site for the 19th Bond pic, which is skedded for release in November 1999.

Some industry insiders say the script of the next Bond entails Pierce Brosnan as 007 saving the $1.2 billion dome — and the tens of thousands of guests inside — from a terrorist attack on New Year’s Eve 1999.

An Eon spokesperson, however, said that the dome was “not the theme of the next Bond” film and that the script was still being formulated. A rep for the New Millenium Experience added that nothing was certain but “we’d love to get involved.”

The next 007 feature — to be directed by vet Brit helmer Michael Apted — will begin shooting at Pinewood studios outside London in January.
