You do a bit of the same thing. You start with it – and let your imagination run. Then you get a feeling for what he’s all about. And then you put those things together and create. So when the time comes, it will be a great feeling. And he’ll tell the world how much he loves it. He would do that in his own time – that was his idea.
How difficult is it to make a Bond movie with Daniel Craig? It seems like you have the whole franchise to work with and that it was really hard to make this movie.
