    Daniel Craig is James Bond in Quantum of Solace

    Late last week, British tabloid paper Daily Star ran a report alleging that the Panama filming for the newest James Bond film, Quantum of Solace, was currently in a state of turmoil.

    The crew was ‘reportedly’ being robbed by locals. The film-makers ‘reportedly’ asked a rival gang for help(!). The film’s stars, including Daniel Craig, were supposedly dodging bullets fired left and right from rival gang mambers. And so on…

    Any truth to this? Not so, according to producer Barbara Broccoli.

    ‘It’s not true that we have had some big problem in Panama,’ Broccoli stated, as reported at Panama Investor Blog.

    Broccoli, along with producer Michael G. Wilson and executive producer Callum McDougall went on to say that the Quantum of Solace cast and crew were not attacked by any gang–despite the contrary reports from the Daily Star.

    Wilson joked that the only thing he had lost in the last few days was ‘cheese.’

    Broccoli went on to state that filming in Panama was going smoothly so far. ‘Everyone is very friendly and helpful… it’s a beautiful country, and the government has offered us its collaboration.’

    Another rumour bites the dust.
