London Too Expensive For James Bond

Long-time James Bond producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli told Screen Daily that London is again looking too expensive to shoot much of the next 007 film.

Wilson says "London is the most expensive city in the world right now. To bring talent here and put them up here for long periods of time and the cost of doing business here is a factor. Whether the new tax incentives will balance that out or not is something we still have to calculate".

Meanwhile, from a cultural standpoint this is fascinating - Youtube has posted up all the trailers for all twenty-one official James Bond films from 1964's "Dr. No" through to 2006's "Casino Royale" (there's even the two unofficial ones as well).
