Take A Flying Leap

Filming is already underway on the 22nd James Bond film, called Quantum of Solace, which will once again feature Daniel Craig in the title role. Here are a few pics of Daniel leaping from a speedboat as he films one of the movie's action scenes in Panama:

James Bond never puts a foot wrong as he dices with danger. But the actor playing 007 is a little more human. Daniel Craig is pictured slipping as he leaps from a moving speedboat during filming for the latest Bond adventure, Quantum Of Solace, in Panama. The actor managed to regain his balance - just - as he landed in a small, battered fishing boat. The moment is believed to be part of a chase scene forming the longest-ever opening sequence of any of the Bond films, stretching to 30 minutes.

I must say that I have never been that big of a James Bond fan (essentially, Pierce Brosnan killed the whole idea of a sexy 007 for me) but Daniel Craig has pulled me back on the fan side. He portrays such a fresh, new Bond that I really hope that he will stay in the role for some time to come. I am very excited to see how this new Bond film, Quantum of Solace, will turn out ...

I don't really care for the name much but I like that Daniel is doing some of his own stunts (like he did in the last film, Casino Royale). I'm really looking forward to another round with James Blonde. [Source]
