http://movieweb.com/bond-23-plans-huge-action-sequence-involving-trains/Last Week, it was revealed that director Sam Mendes is planning to shoot an involved stunt sequence on a train in India for his upcoming sequel Bond 23. At the time, he did not have permission to utilize the train system in the country and was considering taking his production to South Africa.
Today, it has been revealed that the Union information and broadcasting ministry of India has approved Sam Mendes for shooting inside the country. This will be the second 007 adventure, after Octopussy, to take place in India.
The government has given Sam Mendes and his crew permission to take their equipment into Sarojini Nagar Market, Daryaganj street and Ansari Road in the national capital. Bond 23 has been delayed while trying to acquire access to these locations. Principle photography is expected to begin soon, with officials also okaying shoots in Mumbai and Goa.
However, Sam Mendes is still awaiting permission from the railways and the respective state governments to take his team on the trains in Ahmedabad, and Dudhsagar and Zuari Rail Bridge in Mumbai and Goa respectively. It is still possible that this portion of the film will be shot in South Africa.
