Craig plays the 'Fool'
Pic shoots in S.A., U.K.
By ADAM DAWTREYCANNES -- Daniel Craig will play a fading Hollywood star in Baillie Walsh's "Flashbacks of a Fool," which starts shooting May 28 in South Africa and London.Craig has joined the cast alongside Helen McCrory, Olivia Williams, Emilia Fox and Eve. Pic is the feature writing and directing debut of Walsh, an award-winning musicvid helmer. It's produced by Lene Bausager and Damon Bryant, with Craig as exec producer.


"Flashbacks of a Fool" is the story of a hedonistic British actor whose Hollywood career is starting to nosedive as he hits his 40s. The death of his best friend from his English seaside childhood causes him to journey back home for the funeral, and prompts flashbacks to his teenage experiences, including the tragedy that forced him to flee for a new life

This sounds really interesting. Just another example of how Daniel can't be typecast, I love it! :D

I know we've said it before, but he really doesn't stop working does he? He's just finished The Golden Compass, now off to Cannes for a few days and then back to filiming for Defiance.

I guess that means that I, Lucifer will be done after Defiance, or has he done that already too? I know he had his head shaved recently, I thought that was for Lucifer.

Hmm.

I couldn't agree more! He has such a wide and amazing range!

He does seem to be quite a workaholic lately, doesn't he? Not that I mind the influx of Daniel movies coming our way. :wink:

It's great that he's never going to be typecast as James Bond, he really is far too good an actor for that. I love his older "quirkier" roles in films and hopes he keeps on playing these types of characters. I hope he still does the odd low budget/indie film too.

There were some reports that this is something that he himself has been developing for a number of years and if that's true, then it's really great for him! Reaping the benefits of fame: it's easier to get financing if everyone knows your name (pun intended)... 8)

I`ve read somewhere, its a film, he`s planned on doing with a friend.
So, like XXX, he sticks to his plans. :D
The top notch acting in the Weisz/Craig/Spall 'Betrayal' is emotionally true, often v funny and its beautifully staged with filmic qualities..

Oh, I agree. I love his quirky roles! He seems to carry them off so well and is it just me, or do these indie type films just have more amusing characters? So many mainstream films are like cardboard cutouts of the same kind of characters. The "stereotypes" and "politically correct" ones.

I'd rather see something that makes me think or takes me where the typical film doesn't go. Daniel to a "T". :wink:

I`ve found this on a french daniel side : danielcraig.free.fr/

Translated it says the following:

DC has definitely turned off on Blindness.
Within the following days he will finish I, Lucifer and will do Flashbacks of a fool at the end of mai. At the beginning of september he will start the film Defiance.
Bond 22 starts January 2008.

They sounded pretty accurate here, but of course I don´t know how good their source really is.

If you don´t know this side, go there, its pretty good.

Imageshack seems to have a server problem. Don't worry, I'm sure it's only temporary.
