London, Jan 18 (ANI): Producers of the latest James Bond movie 'Skyfall' have had to slash their budget and are shooting in Bognor Regis after scrapping plans to head for six different exotic countries.
Instead of filming in distant locations such as India, China and Bali, they are using various UK beaches for the flick.
'Skyfall' will also rely heavily on special effects and advanced sets at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire.
"To say some of the cast and crew are a bit gutted is an understatement," the Mirror quoted a source as saying.
"Originally six different countries were selected to film certain scenes but after several technical and financial problems, it was decided to scale back and just use Turkey as the sole foreign location.
"As well as Pinewood's incredible facilities, the UK has an array of amazing, untapped resources, and some stunning beaches particularly along the south coast and parts of Wales.
"While Bognor is hardly the most exotic of locations, it is important for the franchise that they support British industry, and give something back.
"Everyone is confident this will be one of the best Bonds ever," the source added.
After repeated delays, filming began two months ago with Daniel Craig as Bond for a third time, and is due for release in November. (ANI)
