After Daniel Craig took a short break for a minor on-set injury, Spectre is back up and running as production continues on the 24th entry in the ever-popular James Bond series. EON Productions and MGM along with Sony Pictures, have released a first look photo of Daniel Craig in action as 007, as he sets out to perform one of the bigger stunt action set pieces in this latest adventure. We also get a behind-the-scenes video blog featuring his co-stars Dave Bautista and Léa Seydoux.
Daniel Craig, his co-stars, and the filmmaking team which is headed up by director Sam Mendes, are currently shooting in Austria. About the scene witnessed in the video, associate producer Gregg Wilson states:
"We have to deliver an amazing sequence, and this is going to be one of the major action sequences of the movie, a jewel in the crown so to speak. It's going to be spectacular and Austria seemed to offer everything that we needed to pull it off."
Adds production designer Dennis Gassner:
"The thing that Sam and I talked about was how we are going to top 'Skyfall'. It's going to be 'Spectre' and, so far, it's a great start. I think that we are going to continue the history of the Bond films, making things that are exciting for the audience to look at and what could be more exciting than to be on top of the world?"
In Spectre, a cryptic message from Bond's past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind Spectre. Take a look as one of the biggest set pieces in this latest mission for 007 comes together before your eyes. Then be sure to catch Daniel Craig back in action on the big screen this November:
