India filming location approved
EON finally have permission to film the dangerous train sequence from the new film in India. Slight changes have been made to ensure passenger safety during the shooting of the scene. "When the Indian line producer came for discussions, I said Bond will have to promote Indian railways and be its brand ambassador. They agreed. We will soon have a written agreement," said Dinesh Trivedi, the railway minister. In the scene, James Bond will jump onto a moving train whilst on a motorbike, then leap onto another passing train and drop below the tracks and into a large dip of water. The final stunt will not be shot in India because of a highly dangerous risk. This stunt will be shot elsewhere.
EON denies that the new film will be called 'Carte Blanche'.
- Carte Blanche is the new James Bond novel written by Jeffery Deaver. None of the James Bond films have been based on any non-Ian Fleming novel. "The new film is not going to be called Carte Blanche and will have nothing to do with the Jeffery Deaver book." said EON Productions.
"It's going to be a great movie, We've got a great director and I'm very excited about the script. I'm going to be very suave in it." Daniel Craig
