While filming at the Chilean Embassy in Washington, D.C., Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig were to drive a white SUV to the entrance, stop the car, and allow valets to park it. Kidman forgot to place the SUV in park, and as she got out, it began to roll down the hill. Craig swooped in from the passenger side and dove at the SUV, hitting the parking brake, and stopping the disaster from proceeding. This happened during heavy rain effects.
While filming in Baltimore, Daniel Craig got the call from Barbara Broccoli informing him he won the role of James Bond. He had to take a short period off shooting to fly back to London for the Casino Royale (2006) press release.
Originally wrapped in early 2006, the film underwent massive re-shooting in 2007. The reason for this was the studio, which didn't liked the cut that Director Oliver Hirschbiegel delivered. To change that, Lilly Wachowski and Lana Wachowski were brought in for re-writes, and James McTeigue to direct the new scenes.
Nicole Kidman was involved in an accident while riding with others, in a car mounted on a trailer, being towed by a camera truck rig. While filming a stunt in downtown Los Angeles, the truck took a turn too wide, slid on wet pavement, and collided with a light standard. Several stunt people on the picture car were injured in the accident. Miss Kidman was brought to the hospital as a precaution, but was able to return to the set the next day.
Cinematographer Rainer Klausmann said in an interview that the original budget was $ 64 million dollars. But this doesn't include the additional millions spent on re-shoots, where he and director Oliver Hirschbiegel were no longer involved [Nov. 2017].
