An article on Yahoo Movies suggests that the new Star Wars movie and the upcoming James Bond film might shoot in Iceland in the coming months:

Rumour suggests ‘Episode VII’ will shoot at least partially in the country. And tips have suggested that James Bond, who last visited in ‘Die Another Day’, might yet make a return visit with his next film, helmed by ‘Skyfall’ director Sam Mendes.

The article, which is mostly about why a lot of Hollywood movies use Iceland as a backdrop, can be seen here: Why Hollywood Studios Can’t Get Enough Of Iceland – Yahoo Movies UK.
