Olivier Schneider orchestrated the combat and acrobatic scenes of “Mourir can wait”. In an interview with “l’Obs”, he recounts the exploits he accomplished and his desire to imagine unprecedented stunts for Daniel Craig, who, for the last time, played 007.
Stunts without James Bond are like a steak with no fries: it’s impossible. Olivier Schneider was the one who designed and managed all fights. gunfights The risks. An amazing motorbike jump (breathtaking), an insane fight in Cuba with Ana de Armas and moments of anthology. The work of the stuntmen, even if we’re not clients of the film (and we’re not), is amazing.
Olivier Schneider began his career in stuntman work on more than 100 films. Then, from the “Wolf Pact” to the “Brother Sisters”, including “Taxi 4”, “A Prophet” and “Shadow Mechanics”, he choreographed the characters’ gnons. James Bond, however is an entirely different story. All the action is yours, and you are only allowed to see it.
What has it been like to be asked “Die Can Wait”?
It was Daniel Craig’s last James Bond movie, so it had to be something special. Craig is very involved and engaging. He puts his best effort, and I can tell you that we all want to be at the top with Craig, even if it’s just because he’s such a great guy. We needed to have some extraordinary scenes. Bond is a character that you can relate too, which is impossible with superhs.
