One of, and perhaps the most important scene (apart from the introduction of Daniel Craig as James Bond) in Casino Royale will be the torture sequence involving a vulnerable 007, Le Chiffre, and a carpet-beater. When it was previously announced that the standout scene of Ian Fleming’s novel would indeed be featured in the film, fans put forth many ideas and thoughts as to how the scene would be carried out.
LSE reports that according to new James Bond, Daniel Craig, the sequence will be filmed on the last day of shooting, saying: ‘The scene should feel tough. There’s a definite wow factor. The men will be wincing… though I’m sure some women will be applauding.’ The director of Casino Royale, Martin Campbell also says that some of the shots are ‘horrific,’ making this Bond film one of the darker ones in nature.
