Spectre - James Bond Does Mexico A Favor

For Some Money: Script Changes to New 007 Movie

In the late second half of 2015, the newest James Bond film called Spectre will hit theaters worldwide and after the mega success of the direct predecessor Skyfall - which was the first entry of the franchise to break the billion Dollar mark at the box office - the production wants to go all in. The budget is said to be somewhere in the $300 million region. In order to make the balance sheet look a little prettier, a $20 million deal with the Mexican government was reached. That deal demands some alterations so that the country has a more favorable presentation.

SPOILERS AHEAD!

Mexico wishes that the killer Sciarra is played by a well-known Mexican actress but ironically she can't play a Mexican. Also, her target was initially intended to be a Mexican governor but will now have to be an international character (an ambassador became of him, apparently). Instead of the normal Mexican police, a scene will now feature a special unit.

Another important aspect is that Mexico City is depicted in a beautiful light by showing it with skyline shots.

The script apparently addressed these wishes in a satisfying manner and relocated the key scene of the film's opening from a cage match to a chase scene during the "Day of the Dead" festival.

Since more and more productions take place in regions where the most subsidiaries and tax cuts are available, that's nothing really new. Certainly many film productions respect special wishes for these benefits without the audience knowing about it.

James Bond 007: Spectre starts in UK cinemas on October 23rd, 2015, and in the US on November 6th, 2015.
