Director Sam Mendes Discusses Skyfall in First Videoblog
02.22.12 by Ryan
Fans of James Bond are going to love the first videoblog from Skyfall, especially if they also like director Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Jarhead). Mendes discusses his focus while working on a movie like Skyfall, and why he was interested in working on a James Bond movie in the first place.
If you're expecting the videoblog to fill in some of the questions about the plot of the 23rd movie featuring Agent 007, though, think again. While we learn that Bond's loyalty to M (Judi Dench) is tested when her past comes back to haunt her, no other plot clues are revealed. But it does show Mendes and star Daniel Craig on the same neon-lit set that was the background of the movie's most recent photo.
Based on the character created by Ian Fleming, Skyfall was written by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade (Quantum of Solace, Casino Royale) and John Logan (The Aviator). Ralph Fiennes, Javier Bardem, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Albert Finney, Helen McCrory, Rory Kinnear, and Bérénice Marlohe also star.
