Daniel Craig laments Quantum of Solace script-writing attempt

Daniel Craig in Quantum of Solace

Story by Jack Foley

DANIEL Craig has revealed his dissatisfaction at attempting to write some of the script for his last James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace.

Speaking to Time Out, the actor – who is currently filming new 007 adventure Skyfall – said he was forced to write some of the script because of the writers’ strike.

But he insists: “A writer, I am not!”

Explaining further, he said: “On Quantum, we were f**ked. 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. I say to myself, ‘Never again’, but who knows? There was me trying to rewrite scenes – and a writer I am not.

“Me and the director [Marc Forster] were the ones allowed to do it. The rules were that you couldn’t employ anyone as a writer, but the actor and director could work on scenes together. We were stuffed.

“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… Thank God it worked, and it worked like gangbusters. But for me personally, on a level of feeling satisfied, I would want to do better next time.”

Craig can next be seen in David Ficher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
