Sam Mendes Will Shoot New James Bond Film in India

Sam Mendes Will Shoot New James Bond Film in India

The Indian government has approved director Sam Mendes to film the latest James Bond feature in locations including Delhi, Goa and close to Ahmedabad, reports THR. The scene in Delhi, India’s capital, is rumored to take place among the crowded bazaar Daryaganj and the famed flea market Sarojini Nagar. The Times of India reported that these areas were approved, excepting some railways because of concerns about security, but the Bond production team is talking with the Railway Ministry, because clearly Bond needs an action sequence on the rails.

Mendes’ film, starring Daniel Craig as the sangfroid hero, will be the 23rd in the James Bond series. It is set to be released in 2012, to mark the 50th anniversary of the franchise.
