TimesOnline have an article on the filming of the 007 Quantum Of Solace in northern Italy, where in the space of a week, 3 accidents were recorded.
- The destruction of 007′s Aston Martin by a stuntman which skidded off a wet road, smashed through a guardrail and ended up in a lake.
- Another stutman man suffered head injuries during shooting of a car chase when he crashed an Alfa Romeo and
- Two stuntmen badly injured during filming of a chase scence involving a lorry and a car.
Who said shooting action scences can’t be dangerous? Oh by the way a bystander suffered a heart attack when he stopped by to watch the filming. Now that is weird.

BBC News has an article on Daniel Craig stuntman losing control of his vehicle which ended up in a lake while filming Craig’s next movie “Quantum Of Solace”.
Not sure if I like this new James Bond. Besides the blond hair I still have to get use to his gritty, hard lined, image. I always heard about 007/James Bond but really got into it when Pierce Bronson was cast as an 007 agent. And now comes this guy in Casino Royale. I saw a documentary on past 007 films and it seems that the franchise had a basic image for Bond in the movies. So what up with this one?. Hmmm. I’ll be looking forward to his next James Bond film and see if the producers will be sticking to his dark side again.
