Default Re: The IRON MAN 3 News & Speculation Thread - Part 5

Here's the relevant info about the India shoot, which will take place in Hyderabad and/or Bangalore (Bengalaru):

The latest news is that makers of the Robert Downey Jr superhero film — Iron Man 3 — will soon be location scouting in India. They are also looking to take things a step further, by having Indian techies in the two IT hubs — Hyderabad and Bengaluru — sort out some technical glitches for Iron Man.

A trade source reveals that a contingent of about 12 people, led by director Shane Black, is set to fly down to India by this month-end for a recce. “They will be here between January 20 and 24 for an extensive location hunt for certain scenes of the film,” says the source.

In the film, protagonist Tony Stark’s company dealing in cutting-edge technology, and with USA outsourcing work to India, the makers plan to utilise this in their storyline. “They will be visiting Hyderabad and Bengaluru to see how they can use this,” the source says, adding, “In the film, supposedly, Stark will be in India, and the techies here will help him with his technological problems.”

When contacted, distributors Walt Disney Studio Motion Pictures remained unavailable for a comment. Iron Man is a Marvel Comics character being made into a film franchise by Marvel Studios, and distributed by Disney. The third installment will release worldwide on April 24.
