A break from Bond
Last updated at 08:52, Tuesday, 20 May 2008
DANIEL Craig took time out from filming the latest James Bond movie Quantum of Solace to attend the London premiere of his new film, Flashbacks of a Fool.
Craig plays Joe Scott, a washed-up film star whose hedonistic life has taken its toll, a world away from the dashing 007.
The British film, written and directed by Baillie Walsh, shows the middle-aged actor trying to come to terms with his troubled past as he revisits the seaside town where he grew up.
Craig played a part in helping gain finance for the film and took an executive producer’s role.
He said: “I got involved on an executive producer’s level to try to drum the money up which involves pressing the flesh and being nice to people. You know how much I love doing that.”
The film also stars Claire Forlani, Keeley Hawes and Mark Strong.
