Daniel Craig’s Bond drama

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Daniel Craig and Sam Men­des re­port­edly had a num­ber of cre­ative dif­fer­ences on the set of ‘Spec­tre’. Al­though the paid had a good per­sonal re­la­tion­ship, they are said to have had very dif­fer­ent ideas on the James Bond movie, which led to ten­sion on set. A source told The Sun on Sun­day: “Daniel and Sam were best bud­dies when they first started work­ing to­gether and you would con­stantly see them laugh­ing and jok­ing. “But after film­ing had been go­ing on for a while, things started to change. “There were a few ar­eas in which they had very dif­fer­ent cre­ative opin­ions and their friend­ship did be­come strained. “There were jokes that you could cut the at­mos­phere be­tween them with one of Bond’s knives. “Both are hugely re­spected and were never un­pro­fes­sional. They played their parts bril­liantly and pro­duced one of the best Bond films. “But it wasn’t the eas­i­est of times for them.” Mean­while, Sam also di­rected 2012’s ‘Sky­fall’ but in­sisted last year that it was time for him to step away from the fran­chise. He said: “It was an in­cred­i­ble ad­ven­ture, I loved ev­ery sec­ond of it. But I think it’s time for some­body else. “I’m a sto­ry­teller. And at the end of the day, I want to make sto­ries with new char­ac­ters.” He has also said: “There is a sense of com­plete­ness that wasn’t there at the end of Sky­fall, and that’s what makes this feel dif­fer­ent. It feels like there’s a right­ness to it, that I have fin­ished a jour­ney. “What is im­por­tant is, not do­ing it is not a neg­a­tive. It’s not me say­ing, ‘I don’t want to do this.’ What it would be is me say­ing, ‘I re­ally want to do this story.’ There are other sto­ries to tell.”
