"before we could jump in a taxi"

TV Illuminations are in pre-production for filming this summer's RSC production of Julius Caesar, scouting locations. In his new production diary, producer John Wyver describes what could have been a delicious prospect:
"There was an hour or so when the old News International offices in Wapping came onto the books of a location agency. Even before a visit we thought that might well be the place for our modern-day African ‘Rome’. But sadly the possibility was withdrawn before we could jump in a taxi."
Perhaps the metaphoric implications of that would have been just too complex.
