Egypt opens two ancient pyramids, unveils new finds Egypt on Saturday opened two ancient pyramids south of the capital Cairo and unveiled a collection of newly found sarcophagi, some containing well-preserved mummies. Antiquities Minister Khaled al-Anani told reporters the Bent Pyramid of King Sneferu, the first pharaoh of Egypt's 4th dynasty, and a nearby pyramid would be reopened to visitors for the first time since 1965.

It is estimated that the 400-strong film crew, hundreds of extras and a predicted increase in tourism could boost the town's economy by as much as €12m (10.7m), according to the mayor, Raffaello De Ruggieri.

It is an "incredible opportunity", he told The Times.

The centre of Matera is based around cave dwellings, and has been used for biblical films including Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ, released in 2004.

Head of the local film board, Ivan Moliterni, said the presence of Daniel Craig and his co-stars showed "we can do James Bond as well as Jesus - we can do action movies as well as costume dramas".

"Matera is over the moon about Bond," he added.

Daniel Craig - said to be in his last outing as the MI6 spy - has been pictured covered in fake blood during filming.

The movie - due in cinemas next April - begins in Jamaica, where Bond is living after leaving active service.

But his old CIA friend Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright) turns up asking for help finding a kidnapped scientist, and Bond is soon on the trail of a mysterious baddie armed with dangerous new technology.

Oscar-winner Rami Malek has been confirmed to play the villain, with Fleabag writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge due to add a bit of comedy magic to the script.

Other new cast members include Captain Marvel star Lashana Lynch and Game Night actor Billy Magnussen, while Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear and Naomie Harris will all reprise their roles.

The title of the new movie was confirmed only last month.

With Craig, 51, due to bow out, former 007 Pierce Brosnan has called for a woman to take on the role of Bond.

Brosnan, who played the spy in four films between 1995 and 2002, said the idea of a female Bond was "exciting" and "exhilarating".
