    By Devin Zydel on 2006-05-15

    As shooting continues on Casino Royale, a brand new video has been uncovered which features some behind-the-scenes footage in the Bahamas and interviews with several key cast and crew members.

    The video, which runs for about five minutes, is entitled Bond in the Bahamas, and can be viewed on Cinebel. It starts off with Dame Judi Dench as ‘M’ being awoken by a phone call informing her that ‘he’s in the Bahamas.’ A chase scene and a conversation between James Bond and M are two other scenes from the film featured.

    Daniel Craig, Judi Dench, Caterina Murino, producer Michael G. Wilson, and director Martin Campbell are all interviewed. Things have apparently ‘settled down,’ according to Wilson, as the crew is ‘in week six and out of the frozen wastelands of Prague and into the sunny Bahamas.’ According to Murino, who plays ‘Solange’ in the film, ‘it’s like home for James Bond.’ On the many stunts in the film, one in particular, Craig had to say: ‘no time to have a fear for heights…you gotta get up there and do it.’
