That’s 8,400 gallons, by the way

It's no surprise that the upcoming James Bond film has a big budget, but we didn't think it would be this large.

Today we found out that the producers behind 'No Time To Die' have spent a whopping £55,000 on 8,400 gallons of Coca Cola. Now, this isn't to quench the thirst of the crew but actually to help film a car stunt.

According to stunt boss Lee Morrison, Daniel Craig came up with this idea to allow his stunt double driver Paul Edwards hit a 25ft ramp at 60mph, clear a wall and land on cobbles with no problems.

So, the film crew went and bought almost 9,000 gallons of the soft drink that, once dried, left a sticky residue on the stones so the vehicle wouldn't slide around the place. But to be fair to the team, once cleaned off, it should leave the cobblestones of Matera, Italy looking cleaner than ever.

Unfortunately, you won't be able to see this stunt for a while as the film has been delayed yet again until April 2021, so fingers crossed everything goes to plan.

Are you shocked at this fact?

  • A 55000 pound " coke" bill on a movie set seems like the norm,not an aberration.

  • Most Americans consumer that in a month. I don't but it sells. Keeps broke people broken and broke. Great for car stunts though or cleaning metal.

  • Crikey. If they were going to do that, then surely they could have used some supermarket own brand Coke - the sort of stuff that makes drinking Cillit Bang sound appealing - and saved £50k?

  • I was about to comment, £55,000 for 8.4 gallons seems somewhat excessive... But then I noticed that you already corrected yourself right below the headline :-)
