Daniel Craig - Daniel Craig Won't Recreate Old Bond Movies

Daniel Craig doesn't want to try and recreate old Bond movies.

The actor is to play 007 for the third time in the 23rd Bond movie, 'Skyfall', and while he has looked at old films to give him inspiration, he wants the suave spy's latest outing to be something new.

Speaking about the highly-anticipated 'Skyfall' - which is being directed by Sam Mendes - Daniel said: ''I reread the books, he read the books, we watched the movies, we talked about the Roger Moore movies, the Sean Connery movies, the whole thing. There's a sort of tone that's in all those movies that you can't try to recreate. If you do, then it's a pastiche. Neither Sam nor I want to make a pastiche of an older movie. But you have flavours of it.''

Daniel also revealed the recent problems with studio MGM - which put filming back - helped 'Skyfall', as it gave everyone more time to work on a better script.

He told Total Film magazine: ''The MGM thing was a silver lining situation where, for the first time, we had a lot of time to work on the script. We weren't publicly allowed to say we were doing anything, but we were secretly meeting. It wasn't full bore until everything was given the green light, but we were very optimistic it would happen.''

'Skyfall' opens later this year.
