'Quantum of Solace' was cobbled together, says Daniel Craig

30-Jul-2011 • Quantum Of Solace

In a revealing interview with The Telegraph, conducted to promote his latest film "Cowboys & Aliens", Daniel Craig reveals his feelings about "Quantum of Solace" and who Bond 23 is shaping up in pre-production.

When asked about whether the delay in starting his third James Bond adventure, due to the MGM financial debacle, has affected his outlook on 007, Craig said: "“The hiatus may prove to be a good thing, because I’m itching to have another crack at it, particularly after Quantum of Solace. We had to cobble that one together because it was made in the midst of the writers’ strike, and it had an effect on the finished product, no doubt. With this one, the right things are in place – Sam [Mendes] is on board and we have the bones of a really good script.”

Will he be doing more after that? “I think so,” he says, somewhat guardedly. He doesn’t know? “I take it one job at a time. Put it this way, if we mess it up, I won’t be asked to do another. The contract goes both ways. I can walk away from it or they can sack me.”

Thanks to `danslittlefinger` for the alert.
