1. Casino Royale – Update #2 on Official Website

    By Devin Zydel on 2006-05-25

    The official Casino Royale website blog has been updated by ‘Yarborough.’ Coverage this time centers around the ‘beginning of term’ feel that accompanies every James Bond film and the action and stunts that Daniel Craig is getting involved in.

    This second official report from the website starts off on the production move from Pinewood Studios to Prague, and the changes and reasons that accompany it. The blog also reports on Daniel Craig and his involvement in the action scenes (with stunt co-ordinator Gary Powell) right from the very start.

    The accompanying two-minute video mostly covers the action and stunts of this newest 007 film, and how Craig and director Martin Campbell wanted to get ‘right into the [action scenes]’ from the beginning. According to Craig, ‘Martin [Campbell] just wants to … get as much energy into it as possible.’
