James Bond: Daniel Craig Teases How No Time To Die Will Finish What Casino Royale Started

Recent articles

It’s been nearly six years since Daniel Craig’s last James Bond film Specter was released. According to 007 producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson in a new interview, “He was so exhausted after that movie. We’d had our own trials and tribulations on Spectre, and [Daniel] had a serious injury.”

Speaking to Total Film, the Bond producers added: “It was very difficult. So he just needed some time.”

But after some much-needed rest with his family, Craig realized how Bond 25, which soon became No Time To Die, could finish the storyline that began in his 007 debut in Casino Royale in 2006.

The 53-year-old said: “We started talking about it and I said, ‘There might be a story we need to finish here – something we started in Casino [Royale].

“’Something to do with Vesper and Spectre, and something connected in some way.’ It started to formulate. And I thought, ‘Here we go.’”

The Bond producers see Craig’s five-film era as “a small miniseries within the series”.

They added: “This film feels like a good bookend for Casino as its emotional evolution reaches a place where we’ve never seen Bond before. So that’s pretty exciting.”

The incumbent star shared how interesting it was to explore Bond’s emotions as such a cut-off character.

He said, “He doesn’t feel like other people because he’s a murderer.”

Craig continued: “At Casino he loses the love of his life, and then the shutters go down.

“In Quantum, the flawed movie it is, it’s about revenge. And Skyfall is about M. It’s about loss. T

“These are big themes. And I think, ‘Yes! Why not big themes?’”

And as for the themes of his grand finale No Time To Die, he replied, “Love and family.”

Craig added: “Because what could be bigger than that? Bond’s ‘family’ are Moneypenny and Q and M.

“And then Lashana [Lynch] comes in, and she’s like a distant cousin you’re not sure about.

“I’ve always said, in Bond movies, the world has to be saved in the first frame, and in the last frame he saves the world. OK. But in the middle – what the f***? It has to be emotionally engaging.”
