    Following up the recent reports by Extra TV, Entertainment Tonight, the BBC, and other news sources, comes this new Casino Royale set visit video from Moviefone.

    The video opens up with an interview with new James Bond Daniel Craig talking about the new film and his role. ‘We’re given a bit more sway with it, because we’re telling a story (Casino Royale) from the beginning,’ says Craig. Bond girl Eva Green (Vesper Lynd) is also interviewed, as she throws in her support for the new Bond. Saying that she’ll be shooting her first scenes in a week, Green explains how the character of Vesper is an ‘enigma’ and different from many of the other Bond girls. Catarino Murino, who plays Solonge, also backs the new 007, saying ‘you will be a great Bond… [he’s] not only a lover… he can be very rude.’ Unlike Green, who has yet to begin filming, Murino only has one scene left to be filmed–which entails her riding on the horse she has previously been seen with in shots from the film.

    The video also includes a short scene from the new film between James Bond and Judi Dench’s M in the Bahamas. Additionally, Sebastien Foucan (Mollaka) explains how Parkour, an art of free-running, will be an essential part of his performance in a chase scene, saying, ‘free-running is about composing with a particular environment.’
