Mexico officials are offering Sony Pictures Entertainment and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. up to $20 million to portray a positive image of the country in the upcoming ‘James Bond’ film, ‘Spectre.’
Among many private documents leaked by hackers in the recent Sony hack were emails between Sony and MGM officials regarding the upcoming ‘James Bond’ film, looking for ways to save money, according to Tax Analysts.
As part of, what the e-mails referred to as, the ‘Mexican Deal,’ producers are making several changes to the film to secure up to $20 million from Mexican officials including script rewrites and casting changes.
In one email, Jonathan Glickman, president of MGM’s motion picture group, wrote that producers are facing a budget for ‘Spectre’ far beyond what was expected.
