James Bond movie 'Skyfall' is to shoot almost entirely in the UK.

The forthcoming 23rd instalment of the franchise - starring Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem and Dame Judi Dench - was expected to shoot in locations across the globe including Bali and China, but budget cuts means Turkey is now the only other country the movie will go to.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Six different countries were selected but after several technical and financial problems, it was decided to scale back and just use Turkey as the sole foreign location."

British beaches will be used - including Bognor Regis on the south coast - in addition to Pinewood Studios.

The source added: "As well as Pinewood's incredible facilities, the UK has some stunning beaches, particularly along the south coast near Bognor and parts of Wales."

'Skyfall' has already begun shooting on location in London including Canary Wharf and Charing Cross, and the film - being directed by Sam Mendes - is due for release in November.
