"Bond" Makers Discuss the "Casino Royale" Facelift

by | August 14, 2006 | Comments

I finally go to see a widescreen and very clean version of the "Casino Royale" trailer (it was on the "Silent Hill" DVD), and you can now color me officially psyched for the 21st James Bond adventure. Series producer Michael G. Wilson and new Bond Daniel Craig recently shared their thoughts on the 007 kick-start with Entertainment Weekly…

…and IGN FilmForce was kind enough to turn the EW piece into a handy little news item: ""After the last film, we spent eight months trying to come up with a story, but just couldn’t," veteran Bond producer Michael G. Wilson revealed in the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly. "The movies had become so fantastical—with invisible cars and stuff like that—there was just no way to continue in that same vein. There was nothing new left to do. So we decided to start all over with the story we’ve always wanted to tell — how Bond became Bond in the first place."

"To prepare for his role, Craig said he "watched every single Bond movie three or four times, taking in everything I could about how the character had been portrayed in the past — then threw all that away once I started doing the role. There’s no point in making this movie unless it’s different. It’d be a waste of time unless we took Bond to a place he’d never been before."
