James Bond Returns To The UK

007 is coming home. Eon has informed Prague’s Barrandov Studios, where much of “Casino Royale” was shot, will not be used for the next film in the series reports Variety.

Instead the franchise’s old home of Pinewood Studios in the UK will be utilised as the film’s main production base when shooting begins in December on the twenty-second feature in the more than four-decade old series.

Lack of financial incentives in the country is being cited as the reason for the non-return, combined with the loss of the “Hellboy” sequel and competitive shooting locations in Hungary, Bulgaria and Serbia are making the Czech film industry nervous.
