James Bond to take on Taliban in new film

London, June 14 The 23rd edition of the James Bond franchise will see the super spy taking on the Taliban and heroin barons in Afghanistan.

Newsoftheworld.co.uk reports that scriptwriters have been quizzing British Embassy staff in Kabul about life in the war-torn country for the next Bond instalment.

An ex-member of the foreign Office's Afghan anti-drugs team is also giving an insight into the British operations there.

"They (producers and writers) are trying to get an accurate picture of the military situation (in Afghanistan)," said an insider at Eon Productions, the producers of the franchise.

The film, starring Daniel Craig as 007, is earmarked for release in late 2011.
