New SKYFALL Set Photos & Daniel Craig Talks About His Frustrations with QUANTUM OF SOLACE

Daniel Craig is seen filming scenes for the new James Bond movie at the Four Seasons hotel in Canary Wharf. Also, Mendes and Craig looked for inspiration from “Live and Let Die” and “From Russia With Love”.

In an interview with Craig talks about the problems that plagued his last Bond movie. He also gushes about the new Bond film, and talks about which past Bond movies inspired him and Sam Mendes.

On Quantum of Solace:
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.’

On 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.’

The website has the scoop on the nighttime shoot from yesterday. According to them the windows on the rooftop set were blacked out as the scene will actually be doubling for a Shanghai location. Which makes sense since we learned a few days ago that another scene will double as the Shanghai International Airport.

What we cannot see in the Splash set photos is a martini bar that says will be featured in this scene. But, you can see the martini bar in the official set photo that was released just a few days ago.
