Moviemaker Scott Rudin has thanked bosses of the Bond franchise and praised them as "fantastic" for allowing Daniel Craig to star in THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO while shooting his next turn as 007.
Rudin and director David Fincher were keen to secure the British hunk for the role of journalist Mikael Blomkvist in the upcoming drama but feared it would clash with his "day job" in the spy franchise.
But Bond producers were more than happy to allow their leading man to moonlight for Rudin - and he's paid tribute to their accommodating ways.
Rudin tells Total Film magazine, "It's complicated by Bond dates. There is a schedule for it that works with the Bond schedule. Obviously... Daniel has a day job! So when we took it on with him, we knew we would have to be navigating with them.
"But the Bond people have been very cooperative about making sure they didn't cost him this opportunity. And they've been completely fantastic and generous. And I think also huge credit to Daniel for being willing to take on two series."
