Daniel Craig will be returning to the big screen as James Bond in the as-yet-unnamed 23rd film in the series. Production has taken the crew to India, where a scene involving Bond, a motorcycle and a train reportedly has to be rewritten.

Originally, the scene called for Bond to jump a motorcycle onto the roof of a moving train, which was packed with folks riding the rails illegally. India is working hard to stop this practice, and the local government asked the production team to remove the roof riders from the film (don't tell the boys from Slumdog Millionaire...).

The crew has obliged, and passengers will sit safely inside the train while Bond roars over their heads on his bike. Either way, we know for sure that Bond will wind up killing a lot of bad folks and bedding a lot of hot women. We call that a win-win-win situation.

      Thank goodness there's a country where you can still legally ride a motorcycle on a moving train. We're losing our freedoms daily here in the States.

      India, why fix a problem when we can just hide it

      Isn't killing someone also illegal? There is plenty of that in James Bond movies, but I don't see that rewritten out of the movie script. Truth is that people are still doing this in India, and just because it looks bad, it doesn't mean that it should be censored. The truth hurts.

      Boo Censorshit!!! If India doesnt want to look unregulated, overcrowded and poor, that is their fault they are. Don't try to cover it up if you have no real intentions of fixing it. Pity the filmmakers had no backbone and agreed to neuter a potentially amazing scene, just to make India look good. Pretty soon, I bet the only India scenes in the movie will end up being ones showing only prosperity and state of the art metropoli, not any of the slums where 90% live, or the utter lack of road rules, or train hopping (oh wait), and there wont be a beggar in sight. Yes, I am Indian, and yes, I have been to India recently.

      Meh. It would've been interesting. Now it sounds like a typical movie cliche with an empty, rehearsed chase scene.

      Years ago India would not have even entertain the idea of telling a movie company to change the script.Now thanks to Western nations giving technology and ******* up to a huge potential market these nations are dictating the terms. India knows it has a lot of consumer power but it is still an nation of massive class disitinctions,treats women like slaves and annoys the world with their phone marketing/sales.I can also confidently say that it also leads the world in unsafe work practices. Unfortunately all this economic activity also fuels India's arrogance.

        I agree. Craig doesn't have the same class.

      Hot in India. And the trains are from the nineteenth century. Who wouldn't want to ride on the roof?

        Trains are very much 21st century when done properly - ask in Japan or in Europe. I could take a Eurostar train from central London to central Paris or Brussels and arrive in 2-2.5 hours. It's cheaper and MUCH faster than taking a plane. Speaking of Eurostar, that's the only train in the UK that works, being owned by a French company. Train transport in the UK sucks, which in a way explain the sorry state of trains in the former colony.
