An overview of the production of the 21st Bond film..
The first official slate on Casino Royale was struck on 30 th January 2006 in Modrany Studios in the Czech Republic. The first scenes shot were interiors of the embassy of the fictional African state of Nambutu where Bond confronts and captures bomb-maker, Molloka after a thrilling parkour chase. This was an exhausting action sequence, just to watch with Campbell barking direction loudly, imparting energy to the performances. Craig had invested the time since his announcement as Bond building his body for the role and preparing for the fight with stunt co-ordinator Gary Powell and stunt double Ben Cooke. Aggression was required -Bond was under fire.[more]
