James Bond fansites speculate next film to be set in Afghanistan

The 23rd Bond film may be set in the Helmand province in Afghanistan, according to online reports on James Bond fansites. Speculation arose after a member of the Afghanistan Foreign Office’s drug task force signed on as a consultant for the franchise. Daniel Craig will reprise his role as the British secret agent following the blockbusters Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace. The Afghani official is believed to have signed a confidentiality agreement to stay mum, keeping fans in the dark as to whether or not the rumors are true.
