New Daniel Craig interview in Dujour magazine
Director Martin McDonagh interviewed Daniel Craig for the current issue of Dujour magazine.
How involved do you get in the scripts?
As much as I possibly can without treading on toes, although you have to offend some people sometimes to move on. I wanted desperately for Sam Mendes to do this movie, but at the time he had other commitments. I said heâs got to do it. We started something with him on the last movie, the beginning of a relationship with a director I havenât had in a long time. Then there was that added pressure because the last movie was huge and everyoneâs asking, âWhat are you going to do now?â Weâve got to make a better movie, thatâs what weâre going to do!
Does that involve making it a bigger money-making movie?
Not for me. The idea that weâre going to make a lot of money from these, even now, is a strange one. Thatâs not how I started out. If they got into a cinema, âYay! Success!â
And you probably canât put your finger on why the last one made so much more than the previous ones.
Hollywood would disagree, wouldnât they? Theyâd say going big is how you make lots of money, but I think, How many times have you watched that fail?
When you start a Bond movie, do you know where youâre going to on day one: Thailand, Morocco, wherever?
Not definitely, no. On this one Mexico City opened up and offered to let us film there.
Whatâs Mexico City like?
It ended up being one of my favorite cities Iâve ever been to, but you can get into an awful lot of trouble there.
Anything you fucking want!
