Red tape could relocate Bond to SA
Cape Town – The producers of James Bond 23
are considering moving filming from India to South Africa if permission to shoot a high action train stunt is refused, reports The Times of India
Producers of the 23rd James Bond film have reportedly asked that sections of railroad in both Ahmedabad and Goa be cordoned off in order to film a massive action sequence with the film's lead actor Daniel Craig and his stunt double.
Take One Productions are said to have become vexed at lengthy bureaucratic procedures to acquire permission to film at the locations and are now threatening to move the shoot to South Africa instead.
Pravesh Sahni of Take One Productions told the Daily Star that they are waiting on South African authorities to provide them with "everything that is required to support this movie.
Sahni added: "If we can't get this co-operation from India, the film will no longer be shot here."
