Trains will Play a Major Role in BOND 23

According to a recent description of a possible action scene in director Sam Medes' James Bond 23 the story is going to revolve around trains. The news was revealed in a report from The Times of India. The report says that the train scenes are supposed to be filmed in India, but might just end up moving to South Africa because the production not hearing back from India to see if it's OK to film the scene. Here's an excerpt from the article, which gives a description of what is being done. Pravesh Sahni of India Take One Productions had this to say,

This could be one of the biggest Hollywood movies shot in our country. Trains are the backbone of the film. We'll pay for the shooting and also mention Indian Railways in the credit line. The shooting was supposed to happen in October-November. Now, we've postponed it to January-February. For the past three months, we've been trying to get things in order. The film has Daniel Craig doing stunts on a freight train. While the Indian Railways has given us permission to shoot, I need to meet someone and explain how important it is for us to block two tracks for eight hours a day over five to six days. For the past 15 days, I've been trying to get someone to hear me out. South African authorities are waiting to provide everything that is required to support this movie. If we can't get this cooperation from India, the film will no longer be shot here.

It awesome to here that trains are going to play a huge part in the film, I enjoy action thrillers that take place on trains. There's just some much you can do in such a confined space that is constantly on the move. According to the report trains are the backbone of the movie, and James Bond is going to be doing a few stunts on them. 

The movie is scheduled to hit theaters on November 9, 2012.
