Principal photography on Bond 23 is set to take place in a studio close to Mumbai this November, according to a report in India’s Mid Day.
The article states that the three week shoot will take place at Big ND Studio located in Karjat, going on to say that director Sam Mendes visited India in April along with production designer Terry Bamber; it is known that Bamber has recently returned from India but unable to confirm for what film due to a confidentiality agreement. The article also says:
“In the ND Studio, South Mumbai setting of the main road with shops, bylanes and the main traffic signal will be expanded to include the historic Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus and Crawford Market, too,” revealed our source, reiterating that a chase sequence full with cars, etc. blowing up will serve for a apt opening for the film, similar to Craig’s parkour-style action sequence in Casino Royal (2006).
