If Bond movies are known for anything, it’s probably their sexy ladies and over the top action. But if they’re known for anything else, it’s got to be globe-hopping adventure. It seems appropriate, then, that reports are coming in about location scouting for Sam Mendes’ upcoming 23rd film in the franchise. According to sources in Mumbai, at least part of Bond’s newest adventure is going to take place in India.

Local newspaper “Mid-Day” quotes a source that is claiming, “Director Sam Mendes recently made a hush-hush visit to Mumbai along with production designer Terry Bamber in mid-April for the film’s recce. The movie will be shot in Mumbai and Goa during the monsoon season on a month-long schedule.” In addition to this, the paper reports that local production company India Take One Productions, which did the work on Slumdog Millionaire, will be working on the film.

If this comes to be, it would be the first time that Bond has wooed the ladies of India since 1983’s Octopussy, but despite the local reports, the suits behind the film aren’t showing their cards. A spokesperson for EON Productions says that, “nothing has been confirmed yet.” Perhaps they have declined to confirm because they just aren’t ready for details about the film to be made public. Or maybe they’re not sure about shooting in Dubai because of monsoon season. Who in their right mind would schedule a film shoot during a monsoon?
