The last piece in the ongoing puzzle that has been playing out in Indian newspapers this month appears to be complete. According to MI6 James Bond will be leaping from train to train in a daring stunt sequence.
In exchange for permission to shoot on Indian rails, Daniel Craig has been asked to be a ‘brand ambassador’ for the Indian train company.
MI6 also has spoilers about what other vehicles are expected to be involved in the chase.
“Whatever help is needed by them will be given,” Chandralekha Mukherjee, executive director, information and publicity, railway ministry, told reporters Thursday.
The train top stunt sequence is scheduled to be filmed in Goa, India, in February 2012. Other locations in the country will include Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad, and Mumbai.
