Daniel Craig says he'll play Bond until someone tells him to stop

3 years agoby:

SkyfallBanner

SKYFALL is set to release this November, barely a month after the formal 50th Anniversary of the James Bond franchise. The BBC was recently on set as SKYFALL films in London (after finishing up in Shanghai and Turkey), and while there they managed to glean a few insights and hopes from star Daniel Craig.

We all know about the financial troubles that beset MGM in the recent past, and for a while filming on SKYFALL was suspended as matters were sorted out.  But even so, "we haven't been resting on our laurels, we've been plotting what to do with this film," Craig said of the delay.  And as for his experience with making Bond films thus far? "The first one was a whirr - it was a new experience and flew by - the second one was the tricky second album, but this one we've really planned and got a great script.  It's going to be different from the last one, but it will still be a great Bond movie... [we're] going to put on a good show."

Sounds solid to me.  See you on November 9th, Mr. Bond.

And you too, SKYFALL co-star Bérénice Marlohe (aka "she who I will never want to stop posting pictures of")...

Skyfall seems to be on its way to right the wrong that was Quantum of Solace. I'm especially relieved by the fact that Craig has now, more than once, stated that QoS was rife with faults.

Though I still don't get why they decided to choose Olga Kurylenko's doppelgänger as the next Bondgirl. Every time I see Marlohe I'm reminded of that fucking Dacia commercial.

3 bond films in 6+ years isn't really all that bad. If they keep this pace he could easily play Bond into his mid 50's, which would give us five more Bonds with Craig in the saddle. 8 Daniel Craig Bonds ain't bad. He'd also hold the record for number of times playing Jimmy B.

I am down!

Connery was THE original Bond. Brosnan shoulda been Bond sooner than he was, but I liked Dalton and his take on the 2 he did. Craig is flat out THE best Bond and I hope he plays Bond for the next hundred years. I don't care if they have to keep him frozen in carbonite and continually thaw him out when it's time to make the next ones.

I agree, Dalton didn't get enough respect for his take on James Bond.

I'm also a fan of Dalton's comedy chops: I still ROTFL when I see him in Hot Fuzz.

I generally dislike Sam Mendes movies, I find them two-dimensional, overwrought, and generally dismissive of humanity (yeah go ahead and neg me.)

But the man makes GORGEOUS visuals. So I'm massively looking forward to if he can bring the right scale and timeless feel to a proper Bond film. That is unless he fills it with a lot of wannabe Holden Caufield BS about how everyday people are all weak, unoriginal rat-race phonies...

American Beauty is one of the worst Oscar winning films of all time. It is utterly melodramatic.

That said, I like Road to Perdition well enough, liked Jarhead (though it is very uneven), and enjoyed most of away we go. None of these are great movies, but they have great parts. Hopefully they have had long enough to work on this that Mendes brings only his best to the Bond franchise. He fucking well better. Craig is the greatest Bond of all time.

Loved Road to Perdition, and Jarhead was good in parts but still had the problems listed above.

Hated, hated, HATED American Beauty and Revolutionary Road (which is essentially the same movie.) And 'Away We Go' turned me off quickly for the same reasons, but the chemistry between Krasinski & Maya Rudolph at least carries you through it.

..And LoL at thinking the narrator was white. Boy was I surprised when I found out otherwise. lol
