Speaking about the daunting task of bettering the record-breaking "Casino
Royale", director Marc Forster said, "What I loved
about the last Bond was that it was Daniel Craig's reinvention
of the character. People now have huge expectations with this
being a follow up to Casino Royale. It is scary, you know? It's
a hard thing to do".
Three weeks in to filming, Daniel Craig talked about how things
were shaping up, "It's falling into place, you know, it's
a big piece of machinery to get going and we've got to make this
one better. We've got expectation against us now. There's a lot
more work to do on this one, or it seems that way. Maybe I've
just got selective memory about the last one because it seemed
like a walk in the park compared to this one now. We've shot
a few of the dialogue sequences which is kind of unusual, but
it was nice. It was nice to start with some meaty dialogue sequences."
Producer Michael G. Wilson reinforced comments made at the press
conference that this film will feature more action that the previous
outing, "In the last film, Daniel was amazing in the action
work and this film has more than doubled it. There's a lot of
different action sequences. He's had to do a lot more extensive
training than he did in the last film".
Craig rounded off the interviews, "We're two or three weeks
in and, you know, we've barely started yet. We've barely scratched
the surface. I’m loving it, I really am. Who wouldn't?"
Snippets from the B-roll show a fight sequence, Craig undergoing
stunt training, and practice sessions for the power boat and
stunt driving scenes.
