PostSubject: Daniel Craig on QUANTUM OF SOLACE: "We were f*cked"   Thu Dec 01, 2011 10:01 am

Quote :
Turning his mind to Bond, Craig admits that ‘Quantum of Solace’ (2008) was a frustrating experience, not least because the Hollywood writers’ strike meant they ended up filming with an incomplete script. ‘We were fucked,’ he says. ‘We had the bare bones of a script and then there was the strike and there was nothing we could do. We couldn’t employ a writer to finish it. There was me trying to rewrite scenes – and a writer I am not. We were stuffed.’

n contrast, Craig says he could not be happier with the script of ‘Skyfall’, which he is filming now with Mendes until the end of next May. ‘I’m genuinely really excited because we’ve got a script. I think this one is better than “Casino Royale”. I really do. It’s a totally original story. There’s a long thought process that’s gone into it. I read it and it just works as a story.’

Craig believes that the fact that both he and Mendes are British, roughly the same age and share the same memories of growing up with Bond, has greatly helped the planning and execution of ‘Skyfall’.

‘Early on, we sat down and we just rabbited for hours about “Live and Let Die” or “From Russia With Love”, and talked about little scenes that we knew from them. That’s how we started talking about it. That’s what we have tried to instil in the script.’

Hehe... ahh, Craig! I wonder which lines in QOS he wrote? Not the "stationery" scene, by any chance?

The praise for Skyfall's script is predictable, but it's curious to read that Mendes and Craig "rabbited for hours" about LALD and FRWL. Here's hoping that there will be sufficient humour and ironic wit in Skyfall.

I wonder what Craig means when he mentions the importance of he and Mendes being Brits of the same generation. Could mean that they simply developed a rapport because of that, or it could mean that British history in the 70s and 80s figures heavily into SF. Perhaps both.

I admire Khan for managing to avoid saying that Craig and Mendes Bonded.

Phone hacking is in my blood.

If Mr Craig had a hand in the dialogue he must have really tested the BBFC's language code.
