Sam Mendes Talks Bond in First Skyfall Production Blog

Not much here, just director Sam Mendes on the set of the movie talking for 90 seconds about why he chose to do “Skyfall”. In short: he was a fan of Bond. Duh. He’s English. Being a fan of Bond when you’re English is like saying I’m a fan of apple pie and talentless reality TV “stars” because I’m American. It just goes without saying, right? But hey, don’t take my word for it. Here’s Mendes talking Bond.

“Skyfall” finds Bond’s loyalty to M (Judi Dench) being tested when the old dame’s past comes back to haunt her, as pasts invariably do in movies. As the British intelligence agency MI6 comes under attack, Daniel Craig as 007 must track down and destroy the threat no matter how personal the cost.

Also starring Javier Bardem, Naomie Harris, Berenice Marlohe, Ralph Fiennes, Albert Finney, Ben Whishaw, and falling November 9, 2012.
