CBn previously reported that Casino Royale‘s Daniel Craig and Eva Green would both be starring in The Golden Compass, a movie adaption of Phillip Pullman’s His Dark Materials.
A new two-minute making-of video has started to appear online and features interviews with the actors, including Nicole Kidman, Craig, and Green, as well as many scenes from the film.
Taking a small break from the James Bond role, Craig plays Lord Asriel in the film. ‘All the characters in the Pullman books are so rounded and rich and fantastic,’ he comments.
Green will be playing Serafina Pekula; Queen of the witches. ‘She’s not like the traditional evil witch; she’s very maternal and very nurturing towards Lyra [played by newcomer Dakota Blue Richards].’
The Golden Compass is written and directed by Chris Weitz and set for release on 7 December 2007. ‘It’s a fantastic story. It’s about things that matter: the human spirit, loyalty, kindness, and free will,’ he says.
