Quantum of problems

Apr. 25, 2008by:

<a href=QUANTUM OF SOLACE" /> Production has had to shut down on the 22nd James Bond adventure, QUANTUM OF SOLACE, after a series of dangerous accidents occurred both during and in between filming, one of which has left a stuntman in critical condition at a local hospital in northern Italy, leading many to speculate on exactly what the f**k is going on. Are these simply a series of coincidences? Is this divine intervention for the filmmakers sticking to such a frustratingly cryptic title? Or has the film joined the ranks of similar productions deemed "cursed" - THE CROW, for example, which claimed the life of Brandon Lee. Read the details over HERE. Bond continues his intense brood on November 7th.

Extra Tidbit: Apparently, even Bond's Aston Martin has been wrecked.

Casion Urban Legend

No one died on the set of Casino Royale. There were a few injuries - none life threatening, which is expected during a shoot with so many stunts. It's that or more horrible CGI! Quantum is still filming and due out on time.

this sucks

This sucks because I'm in Italy studying this semester. A few weeks ago I went to Siena to watch some filming, ended up talking to the Head Rigger, and got invited back to the set when they come back to Siena in mid-may, just before I go home. Obviously, I want everyone to be safe, but I hope that the shut down doesn't shift their schedule to after I'm gone. That would suck major ass.

Article Correction

To clear up confusion from this article, only the 2nd unit (action unit) has halted production. They were re-shooting footage that Gary Powell(2nd Unit Director) was unhappy with. Daniel Craig and the gang are still filming elsewhere in Italy. They'll be in Tuscany through tomorrow.
As for the absurd comment of people "dying" during 'Casino Royale', that never happened. A lot of the other stupid reports of problems from that set were exaggerated or made up by tabloids because they didn't like

poor craig

Didn't a bunch of crap happen on Casino Royale? Like Daniel getting his teeth smashed out, not knowing how to handle the Aston Martin and the rumors he couldn't do certain stunts. Hmm. Bond is cursed.

Good idea

I think this is a good idea. It's obvious that something isn't going right and they just need to stop what they're doing, take their time... and do it right. I find it similar to when a Jet crashes at my Air Force Base... the base usually stops all maintenance and flying for the next 24-48 hours. Take time to relax, and realize how critical everyones job is, and to do it right the first time.
