Never say never: James Bond goes to Kabul

Never say never: James Bond goes to Kabul

The poppy fields and drug barons of Helmand are likely to star in the next James Bond film after scriptwriters sought technical advice from the British embassy in Kabul.

Speculation that at least some of the next Bond adventure will be set in the volatile southern province of Afghanistan has been running high since a member of the Foreign Office's drug-busting team in the country began acting as a consultant for the Bond franchise last summer.

The official involved, who has since left the Foreign Office and Afghanistan, is believed to have signed a confidentiality agreement with the filmmakers preventing any discussion of the project.

UK diplomats have long joked about the need for a Bond figure to turn round the situation in Helmand, where thousands of British troops have struggled against a resilient, drug-funded insurgency.
