Daniel Craig: Skyfall not about emotions

2012-04-13 19:07
 
London - Daniel Craig claims Skyfall will not be an "angst-ridden" movie.

The actor - who is reprising the role of British spy James Bond for the third time with the movie - has confirmed director Sam Mendes is not out to create anything dramatically different from the previous films and is hopeful it will be "exciting to watch".

'Very serious movie'

He said: "I sat down with Sam Mendes two years ago, three years ago - now it's getting on four - and we discussed what we wanted to do and how we wanted to do it, and he's one of the biggest Bond fans around.

"He's not out to do an angst-ridden movie, some chamber piece about people's emotions. It's a Bond movie. But we both agreed that if he cast the film, which he did really well, and we brought in older characters and new characters, that we'd have something really rich and sort of exciting to watch."

Co-star Javier Bardem, who is playing a bad guy in the movie, admits he was delighted to have been asked to take part.

He told MTV News: "I've seen many, many James Bond movies. It's fun to be part of one of them. It's really good, again, but again, it's also about the people around this movie that is really exciting to work with; amazing cast, a great director and great character to play. It's a very serious movie, it's very solid."

Skyfall is due for release in November.
