Dave Bautista has shared his experience of filming as news broke that he will be starring opposite Daniel Craig once again, but this time in his 'Knives Out' sequel.
THR: Bautista is also eager to reunite with Daniel Craig on a project that is far less rigorous than their experience together on Sam Mendes’ Spectre. During a fight scene between Craig’s Bond and Bautista’s Hinx, Craig suffered a torn meniscus that halted production for a short while. And once filming resumed, Bautista suffered a nose injury during reshoots for the very same fight scene.
“I lost a nose and he lost a knee. Yes, I am excited to be working with Daniel again. And I’m excited that it will be in a much, much less stressful environment because being on a Bond film is just hard. It’s just stressful,” Bautista shares. “But I think [Knives Out 2] is just a much more lighthearted film, and the environment that we’re shooting in is going to be beautiful, warm and sunny. So anyway, every time I’ve run into Daniel, it’s always been a good experience, and I’m looking forward to reuniting with him and actually having some dialogue on-screen with him.”
