DIRECTOR AND STAR FINISHED SCRIPT FOR BOND FILM

Daniel Craig has acknowledged that he was frustrated by the mediocre script for the 2008 James Bond movie Quantum of Solace. “You swear that you’ll never get involved with s**t like that. We were f****d,” he told Time Out magazine. “We had the bare bones of a script and then there was a writers’ strike and there was nothing we could do. We couldn’t employ a writer to finish it. … There was me trying to rewrite scenes — and a writer I am not.” Since the company was barred from employing other writers, Craig said that he and director Marc Forster were forced to patch up the screenplay themselves. “We got away with it, but only just. It was never meant to be as much of a sequel as it was, but it ended up being a sequel, starting where the last one finished.” Reminded that the film turned out to be a huge commercial success, Craig agreed, but remarked, “For me personally, on a level of feeling satisfied, I would want to do better next time. That’s really important to me … For f****’s sake, it’s a Bond movie. You want people to go, ‘Whooah!’ — a sharp intake of breath during a movie is never a bad thing.”
