Official ‘Casino Royale’ Teaser Poster
The official Casino Royale website blog has been updated by ‘Yarborough.’ Coverage this time centers on the intense Madagascar construction site chase scene in the film between Daniel Craig’s 007 and Mollaka (played by free-runner Sebastien Foucan).
The site of land in question belongs to Bahamian Ministry of Defence. According to the report, construction of a hotel was set to take place on the site, but it was left unfinished. Thanks to some further work from the James Bond crew, it works perfectly as their construction site location.
According to stunt co-ordinator Gary Powell, Bond fans have been ‘swamped over recent years with CGI stuff and I think they are actually getting bored of it now. So to go back to the route of actually doing it for real is definitely more satisfying, and hopefully for the public too … they are actually seeing real people taking real chances.’ Read the entire report here on the official James Bond website.
