    The official Casino Royale website blog has been updated by ‘Yarborough.’ Coverage this time centers on Daniel Craig and stunt co-ordinator Gary Powell in Prague.

    The third official report takes us to Prague on the eve of shooting (in a ‘bitterly cold’ January). ‘Starting with a bang,’ Daniel Craig and Sebastian Foucan (Mollaka) begin their first day at the Nambutu embassy. According to Craig: ‘It just helps everybody, focuses everybody’s mind. It is a big sequence but actually it’s not by far the biggest so we’re kind of breaking in gently, I think.’

    Much of the training is creating a very ‘aggressive looking … [and] physically confident’ new James Bond according to the report. Director Martin Campbell could only praise the new 007, saying: ‘He’s pretty terrific you know, he looks fantastic…’
