Next Bond Film In Afghanistan – Maybe but Definitely

The as-yet untitled next Bond film is well in motion according to MGM and EON, who are behind the Bond Franchise. They have announced the writing team for the new pic which include Neal Purvis and Robert Wade who have been writing Bond movies since The World Is Not Enough. In addition to Purvis and Wade, they have added Frost/Nixon writer Peter Morgan (replacing Paul Haggis) in order to pump up the classiness of the new flick.

However, this has not yet been confirmed but speculations are that at least some of the next Bond adventures will take place in the southern province of Afghanistan. Although this is not the first time Bond is filmed in Afghanistan, in the 1987 The Living Daylight with Timothy Dalton’s Bond was imprisoned in a Russian camp in Afghanistan, it will not depict the actual day to day life of British officials stationed in Lashkar Gah, capital of Helmand in current times, with bodyguards and bomb-proof vehicles and fortress like buildings.

A start date on the new Bond film has not yet been announced. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
