Craig shows Defiance

05.16.2007

Daniel Craig doesn't seem to have to worry about being typecast as James Bond. The actor has a number of non-Bond roles on the way (THE GOLDEN COMPASS, I, LUCIFER) and has now signed on for yet another. Craig will star in the upcoming Ed Zwick (BLOOD DIAMOND) film DEFIANCE. The film follows four Jewish brothers who flee Nazi Poland and take up with a group of Russian freedom fighters in Belarus. Craig will play one of the brothers, James Bondstein. It's unclear whether DEFIANCE would film before BOND 22. Craig also has the thriller BLINDNESS with Julianne Moore on his to-do list. Given that BOND is already set for a November 2008 release, it probably won't start until later this year allowing Craig another project this fall after I, LUCIFER wraps.

Extra Tidbit: Zwick produced the short-lived but long-loved Claire Danes series "My So-Called Life" for ABC.

Bond 22 is one of my most wanted films next year..Craig is awesome as Bond IMO. You really get the feel that he's a deadly agent..something I didn't get from Connery or Brosnan. I hope he does at least 3 or 4.

I just found out about him being in The Invasion, which comes out in August. I wonder when we'll get a trailer..

My guess is that Craig

does a Timothy Dalton with two Bonds and out. And Casino Royale was a good Bond flick, despite the end and M being a woman. Bring back the stern father M and I'll be happy. Bob Hoskins maybe?

Yuck.


I can't believe that Bond 22 is set for fall '08. That screams god-awful, rush job to me. Though it can't be much worse than Casino Royale. Unless it's Die Another Day...or the World is Not Enough.

Bondstein?

Is that, like, the Jewish James Bond?

Hey, sounds great to me. Ed Zwick rules.

Can't wait for the other movies, too!
