Dave Bautista: Daniel Craig a lot happier filming Glass Onion than Bond

Dave Bautista has revealed that Daniel Craig was much happier filming Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery than he was filming James Bond epic, Spectre.

After Pierce Brosnan confirmed his retirement from the role, the casting rumour mill naturally went into overdrive, as Bond producers searched for their next Bond who would star in the Casino Royale reboot.

Craig would land the role and go on to lead the most commercially successful period in the franchise's history before retiring as 007 in 2021's No Time to Die.

The actor has continually spoken about the pressure of playing Bond and having to carry such an important film series, and Bautista thinks that pressure was present when filming Spectre.

"He was really put through it on Bond," he told Entertainment Weekly.

"You could feel that he was under a lot of pressure. He didn't seem like the happiest person on Bond, but on Glass Onion, it was the complete opposite.

"He was just so much fun, and he was always smiling and happy and interacted a lot more.

"On Spectre, there wasn't a whole lot of interaction with the whole cast. But Glass Onion was the complete opposite. We were always together. So I got to know him better as a person and actually see him do his thing."

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery

Bautista and Craig will star alongside each other again in the sequel to Knives out, titled Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.

The first movie featured an impressive ensemble cast, as in addition to Craig we saw Ana de Armas, Christopher Plummer, Jamie Lee Curtis, Chris Evans, Michael Shannon, Toni Colette, Don Johnson, Lakeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford and Jaeden Martell.

Knives Out received critical acclaim for its acting, directing and screenplay, with the screenplay being nominated for an Academy Award.

It was also a commercial success, earning $311 million on a budget of $40m.

In March of 2021, it was announced that Netflix had purchased the rights for two Knives Out sequels for $469m, with Rian Johnson returning to direct and Craig returning as Benoit Blanc.

The official premise for Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery is:

'Tech billionaire Miles Bron invites his friends for a getaway on his private Greek island. When someone turns up dead, Detective Benoit Blanc is put on the case.'

In addition to Craig and Bautista, it stars  Edward Norton, Janelle Monae, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., Madelyn Cline, Kate Hudson and Jessica Henwick.
