Skyfall runs into bad publicity in Turkey

Production of Skyfall, the next James Bond film, has now moved to Turkey where the film makers have attracted quite a lot of unwanted publicity from local media organisations.

The producers have been accused of damaging valuable historic artifacts in Istanbul and misrepresenting the country in the film that is due out at the end of October.

However, film making being film making, it has now been reported that all is not what it seems. A press conference was staged by Michael G Wilson, one of the producers of the James Bond films and step son of Albert “Cubby” Broccoli, who with partner Harry Saltzman made the first 007 movies.

In the press conference Wilson told journalists that damage that appeared to have been sustained at the entrance of the Grand Bazaar was caused to a prop entrance that was shielding the genuine article from damage.

He also said that the motorbike roof chase over the tiles of houses in the area was done on a protective covering of fake tiles to prevent damage.

However, it does appear that a shop front was damaged when a motorbike crashed into it while filming earlier this month. The shop sustained broken glass but not much more appeared to have been damaged.
