Bahrain has been chosen as the location for part of the filming of a British spy movie, the Manama-based Gulf Daily News reported last Sunday.
The movie, ‘Bulldog Drummond: Hero for hire’, is based on a series of British novels published between 1920 and 1954. It will be produced by the London-based Twickenham Film Group.
“We are even planning on shooting parts of Bulldog Drummond: Hero for hire in Bahraini waters… It will be a James Bond style action movie,” James Black, founder of TFG, said.
Earlier in the year, TFG reveled plans to launch a film academy and studio in Bahrain and Black confirmed that his firm is looking for land in the Gulf state for the proposed project.
“The Bahrain Film Studios and Academy will have four sound stages of different sizes. We are ready to make a move to Bahrain and are just looking for any Bahraini company or person that has 30,000 sq. m. of land to sell that is not near (Bahrain International) Airport,” Black added.
According to Gulf Daily News, US-based construction corporate Sprung is reportedly in talks with TFG to build the Bahrain complex.
Sprung has previously constructed studios for both Sony and Universal Studios.

It can be authoritatively reported that the Jama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati Wal-Jihad sect, meaning “people committed to the propagation of the Prophet’s teachings and Jihad”, popularly known as Boko Haram has claimed responsibility of the killings that occurred during the weekend in Plateau State which climaxed with the killing of a serving Senator and a Plateau State House of Assembly.
The sect, according to a source who speaks exclusively to SaharaReporters on the condition of anonymity carried out the attacks.
The source also claimed that the sect debunks all statements credited to National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki of having their contacts and any discussion of sort going on with it on cease fire.
“The Jama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati Wal-Jihad carried out attacks against the continued injustices against Muslims in Plateau State, and Nigeria at large. This is what I can tell you for now. They also countered proclaiment of the National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki. You people have a shallow understanding of what they stand for. They are working for Allah’s work and not human and they have done it, and it is a big success in the course of Allah’s work. Give me some hours and I will give you more details but for now this is the fact. They have acknowledged and affirmed it.”
Brig. Gen. Sylvester Iruh (retd.) left Ilorin, Kwara State, on Friday, July 6, with the hope of joining his family in Akute, Ogun State, Having left them for a day to attend a burial in Ilorin.
But his hopes were dashed when he was attacked by suspected herdsmen on the Long Bridge on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
Iruh’s wife, Christiana, told our correspondent on Monday that she was expecting her husband when she received call that he had been attacked.
She said, “When I got to the Lagos State Emergency Hospital where he was rushed to, I was told he was dead.
“I asked the other occupants of the vehicle – two men and a woman – what happened to my husband and they said the tyre of the Hilux vehicle he was driving had problem. So, he had to stop on the bridge to change it.
“They said other motorists going on the road kept warning them that the place was dangerous. So, he decided to leave the place and change the tyre when they got to a safe spot.”
Our correspondent learnt that Sylvester asked the other occupants to get into the vehicle quickly so that they could leave the place.
But before Iruh could join them, two men came out from under the bridge and immediately shot him with an arrow.
Christiana said, “I was told they immediately pounced on him after that and stabbed him all over his body and face. One of the daggers stuck to his back.
“The dagger was removed at the mortuary. The men who attacked him were said to be carrying sticks like Fulani nomads with bows and arrows in their bags.”
