Daniel Craig Won’t Recreate the Old Bond Movies

Daniel CraigDaniel Craig doesn't want to try and recreate old Bond movies.

The actor is to play 007 for the third time in the 23rd Bond movie, Skyfall, and while he has looked at old films to give him inspiration, he wants the suave spy's latest outing to be something new.

"I reread the books, he read the books, we watched the movies, we talked about the Roger Moore movies, the Sean Connery movies, the whole thing. There's a sort of tone that's in all those movies that you can't try to recreate. If you do, then it's a pastiche. Neither Sam [Mendes] nor I want to make a pastiche of an older movie. But you have flavors of it."

Daniel also revealed the recent problems with studio MGM - which put filming back - helped Skyfall, as it gave everyone more time to work on a better script: "The MGM thing was a silver lining situation where, for the first time, we had a lot of time to work on the script. We weren't publicly allowed to say we were doing anything, but we were secretly meeting. It wasn't full bore until everything was given the green light, but we were very optimistic it would happen."

Skyfall opens later this year.
