    As reported on The Scotsman, Daniel Craig has said that Casino Royale, while still a James Bond film, but with a love story that makes it a little bit different…

    ‘First and foremost this is a Bond movie,’ he said. ‘Every box is ticked, everything is there. We have Aston Martins, we have beautiful girls, we have great locations, we have fantastic action sequences.’

    However, the thing that sets Casino Royale apart from other James Bond films is ‘a love story of depth and reality.’

    I didn’t want to be in a movie where the world needs saving in the first scene and it’s saved in the last scene, and all you are doing is filling in the gaps,’ Craig said. ‘I don’t think it’s interesting unless you see character development. The real heartbeat of this movie is the love story.’

    ‘We have taken risks and we have changed. If you don’t change you die,’ said producer Barbara Broccoli on the changes from 2002’s Die Another Day to Craig’s debut 007 film.
