But I guess different strokes for different folks.
Director Mendes says Craig brings complexity to 007 role
Sun Apr 29, 2012 3:59pm EDT
ISTANBUL (Reuters) – Oscar-winning director Sam Mendes said on Sunday he would not have made the latest James Bond film “Skyfall” without Daniel Craig playing the MI6 agent because of the complexity the British actor has brought to the character.

Mendes, who won an Academy Award for directing “American Beauty” in 1999, has depicted troubled men with ordinary lives -a far cry from 007, the ultimate action hero.

Bond’s playboy image does not reflect the flawed hero in novelist Ian Fleming’s books, first published in 1953, Mendes, 46, told a press conference in Istanbul, where “Skyfall” is being shot this month.

“What Fleming created was a very conflicted character,” the British filmmaker said. “Some of those things are explored in this movie, because Daniel as an actor is capable of exploring them.

“That was a big thing for me, having a Bond who I believed in, who I felt could take the character to a new level. I could imagine another actor and I wouldn’t have wanted to do it.”

Craig, 44, reimagined Bond as a dark figure when he took over the role in the franchise’s last two films, “Casino Royale” and “Quantum of Solace”.

He and Mendes worked closely to develop the story in the latest film. They were afforded extra time to discuss it when production was suspended in 2010 because of financial troubles at MGM, which nearly filed for bankruptcy.

“We were in continued conversation, once Sam agreed to do it,” said Craig. “We weren’t supposed to talk to each other because MGM hadn’t done the deal.
“But we couldn’t shut up. It was a chance for us to reread Ian Fleming, and we started emailing each other, ‘What about this and what about this?’, and that’s how it snowballed.”

Mendes, 46, said he had long wanted to direct a thriller.

“If I didn’t feel I could have made something that was both part of the Bond story and at the same time personal for me, I wouldn’t have attempted the movie. I feel like we’ve found a story that speaks to me,” he said.


While the plot of the 23rd film in Hollywood’s longest-running franchise is still a secret, Sony Pictures has said it is about a potential rift between Bond and his boss M, played by Judi Dench, when the past returns to haunt her.

The film has a “very rich” romance, said Craig, 44, and hinted that Bond may reprise the humor that some of his predecessors brought to the role.

“He’s funny as hell in this movie,” Craig said.

“Skyfall”, which also stars Ralph Fiennes as fellow agent Mallory and Javier Bardem as the villain Silva, was shot in Istanbul and the southern Turkish towns of Fethiye and Adana, as well as in Shanghai.

Shooting in Istanbul was a deliberate choice to mark almost 50 years since a Bond film was first set in the ancient city that straddles two continents, said producer Barbara Broccoli, who described Istanbul “as Ian Fleming’s favorite city”
“To Russia With Love” with Sean Connery in 1963, included a scene in Istanbul’s 6th-Century Basilica Cisterns. The Byzantine-era Leander’s Tower on the Bosphorus Strait appeared in “The World is Not Enough” in 1999 with Pierce Brosnan.

“What we’ve got in store will hopefully combine the best of Istanbul and Turkey without falling into clichés,” Mendes said.

“It’s an ever-changing, evolving city and we’re very much trying to capture the city as it is now, and not as it was 49 years ago.”

Earlier this month, a stuntman lost control of his motorcycle and smashed into the window of a 330-year-old shop in the city’s historic Grand Bazaar.

“Damage was very minimal,” Mendes said. “We’ve at no stage wanted to harm anything in Istanbul and hope we have been incredibly respectful.”

Naomie is so beautiful!

When he shot CR/QOS, he tanned. Probably he cannot tan to play Blomkvist after this.

“Daniel Craig” and his Turkey Call??? Damnn–whaaa? I am right HERE Dan!!!! Heres yo Turkey!!! I will Gobble your ——————

woah–I was feeling a little looney there for a second!

Dan is looking sharp. Those thighs fit fantastic in those denim. thighs. damn dan. And I will “hand-wash” your sweater for you anywhere in the world. hellll, I will “hand-do” anything for you anywhere. and, I know there are other people with him that probly look spectacular, but. mine eyes are trained on the sexiest person in those photos!! And, again, his jeans probably cost as much as the dresses, how come he is allowed to wear jeans when the girls are so dressed up? He has come a long way baby!

oh, great. i wrote come. and long. in 2 diff sentences.. but describing Dan. and I thikkk ishoudl go know.

oh–hi Mendel–seen Fio? happy sunday! Get to work Fio, Dan’s on the move. Doing Turkey calls!!

Ya know, there are competitions for that–the best Turkey Calls, ‘specially in New Hampshire–the Turkey is our State bird. uh, yeh. “what a world, what a world,” so, Dan–call me, I will “put you up”!!!

~and no word if Guinness is going to meet George & Obama. but i havent checked my email.

And Daniel LOVES that shirts, doesn’t he? I think a lighter color will look good on him.

I have a man crush on daniel, can’t wait to see skyfall!

@Bond Back In Turkey:
Thank you for the video! Daniel looks very dapper in everything! (and so handsome – my biased)

for those who have never been; Istanbul is a gorgeous city. you can live in Europe and go to work in Asia without even leaving the city and vice versa. so, i can’t wait for Skyfall to come out not only because it’s Bond but also because i’ll get to see some of the sights again. and of course there’s Daniel Craig.

I’ve always thought…
Daniel photographs badly sometimes, the original is better than the photograph―the photograph does not do his justice! And he looks still more handsome when he does his act, I mean, he is a sensitive actor, to perform an artistic work skillfully. He is NOT a cheap underwear model!
