I am a fan of mr.craigs take on Bond.
I do think that the article highlights the 'creative teams' excuse for a more flimsy story line for QOS... Two years appart was never a problem before for the writers, what has become a problem is James Bond lives in a smaller, more dangerous world.
The destinations are all within reach of a travel agent, the reporting villainy is overshadowed by the Internet and satellite spy cameras, the war mongerers today are tight terririst cells who hole up in bedsits and caves and not huge underwater lairs and the bonking on the job is liable to get him sacked nowadays!
The writers I think now need to look at Bond as the detective and spy he was meant to be, undercover and deadly.

glad to hear it. there are still some who don't rate craig as bond but thankfully they are in the minority and sad sad people so we wont worry about them.
i for one cant wait to see skyfall - bond is as much an event as it ever was. its the last great proper blockbuster series left. although the character came from books its also all about original screenplays too. and no bloody stupid easy cash in superheroes either. spandexed buffoons!
its got the right actor playing the lead, that awesome heritage and the best music of any series (ok, so maybe its a tie between bond and pretty much anything by john williams)
and before anyone starts... no, craig's NOT too old

Brilliant news. Love Craig in the role and I suspect his involvement is why they're getting the higher profile directors these days. I'm champing at the bit for Skyfall at the IMAX and now I'm looking forward to even more great stuff in the future. I may have a Vesper to celebrate. Chin chin.

Hope this doesn't mean they will do a continuing story over the three films like casino royale and quantum of solace, I like my bond movies as stand alone stories

I can't stand the new Bond but the problem's with the writing, not the actor.  The creatives decided they want James Bourne, and Craig has delivered exactly what they wanted with gusto.

Excellent news. As much as I'd love to see Michael Fassbender in the role, there's no guarantee he'd be chosen. Craig is brilliant as Bond, and I'll happily watch him do a few more (hopefully with Nolan directing one of them).

I dunno... Making a nice and compact trilogy out of Graig Bonds would've been cool and something different.

And would you please stop that bullshit about Christopher Nolan directing Bond-movies before it becomes reality. The Dark Knight films were pretty good but they were horrible Batman adaptations. And I love Bond too much to see what this "visionary" would do with his "reimagining" of the greatest franchise in the history of cinema.

Im a huge comic fan and can honestly, with no offence intended that say what you just wrote there is a load of old bat shit. So its not Denny O'Neill's, Frank Millers, etc Batman, but Batman has survived and thrived on numerous and very different iterations.

Nolan would be a superb Bond director as he simply makes great movies.

Daniel Craig is a good actor and he portrays James Bond great so it'll be nice to see him again as James Bond
