A historic bridge in southern Turkey is to be used in filming due to take place in February according to a report by the Anatolia News Agency. The Varda Railway Bridge is close to the village of Hacıkırı in the province of Adana and the production team will spend a total of three months in Turkey, arriving in January. According to the report:
The 172-meter-long and 98-meter-high bridge, which was built in 1912 by Germans, will feature in the opening 15-minute part of the series’ 25th film along with Istanbul’s Hagia Sophia Museum and the Aegean province of Fethiye.
The article also says then bridge will appear in a 10 minute sequence, which could well be the railway sequence originally planned for India but cancelled due to red tape and so while unverifiable at this stage does at least have a ring of truth.
