James Bond will not come back to the Czech Republic

Casino Royal Even though the film-makers of Casino Royal praised the cooperation with local specialists in the Czech Republic, they won’t come back here to shoot the 22nd Bond movie. The reason is very simple: money.

Other countries offered tax relieves. The film-makers will get 20% of what they have invested back. Unfortunately, there are no tax relieves for film-makers in the Czech Republic and shooting is therefore more expensive here.

Among films, that were about to be filmed in the Czech Republic, but finally moved somewhere else are (besides the new Bond movie) also Hellboy 2 with John Hurt and Selma Blair, Watchmen with Jude Law and Billy Crudup or Valkyrie with Tom Cruise and Bill Nighy.
