    Mexico gets to make casting and script decisions in this James Bond movie? Is that what I read?

    "Shooting this month in Mexico City, Spectre will receive at least $14 million, and up to $20 million for script rewrites that portray modern Mexico City buildings and a generally favorable image of the country. Among Mexican officials requests, the villain cannot be Mexican, according to Taxanalysts.

    Taxanalysts says that permitting Mexican authorities to make casting decisions, dictate characters ethnicities and change the occupation of an unnamed character "goes well beyond" the normal strings attached to qualify for film incentives."
