Daniel Craig Makes A Quantum Leap

Daniel Craig returns to the role of James Bond in 'Quantum of Solace.'

Daniel Craig returns to the role of James Bond 007 in Columbia Pictures’ new action-thriller “Quantum of Solace” after the smash hit success of 2006’s “Casino Royale” which saw his debut in the role.

“It’s like I’ve never been away, I was involved for a little longer this time and was working on `Quantum’ for about three months before we started shooting. A Bond film is a big piece of machinery, to get it going takes a lot of momentum and a lot of pushing. We kicked off straight away after Christmas and everything started falling into place.”

“Quantum of Solace” represents the first direct sequel in the James Bond film series, Craig explains; “We felt we needed to tie up the loose ends from `Casino Royale’ and make sure people realize we are back making Bond movies. For me it’s about creating something that is going to stand alone but if you put the two films together, you’re going to have an incredible experience because you will see one continuous story.”

“Quantum” was filmed in more countries than any other film in the franchise, Craig explains why; “I think the remit for the Bond movie is that we have to be taken somewhere. It is important that we see this character go places that excite you and make you look at the world in a different way. For me, as a kid, the Bond movies transported you to another world. If that was the only reason to make this film, we have fulfilled it.”
