Is Spielberg Set To Film In India In November?

Is Spielberg set to film in India during November and into December?  The Times of India think so (or more specifically, his unit.  This could involved Spielberg but likely to be a second unit) with this article, stating that the director is moving to India to finish shooting The Hundred Foot Journey.

The last time Steven Spielberg was in India, it was a whirlwind trip during which he had met the top brass of Indian cinema. He had even conducted a master class on cinema then, with Amitabh Bachchan playing the emcee. Now sources tell us that Spielberg's unit will be in Mumbai from November 24 for the shoot of The Hundred Foot Journey, based on the book of the same name by Richard C Morais.

The film, co-produced by Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey, has Om Puri and Helen Mirren in the lead. A large portion of the film, directed by Lasse Hallstrom, has already been shot in France. And, now the makers will move to India. Since Om plays an Indian living in Paris, his portions needed an Indian backdrop. Sources says instead of recreating this in a studio, Spielberg has asked his unit to shoot at real locations in Mumbai. Whether or not, the maverick filmmaker chooses to accompany his production unit is still being kept under wraps.

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history. UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company.
