Daniel Craig to open London Games with daredevil leap from helicopterLondon: Daniel Craig is set to open the London 2012 Games ceremony in true Bond style with a daredevil leap into the Olympic Stadium from a helicopter.

Three choppers will swoop down the Thames and under London Bridge before heading to the Olympic Park in East London.

To the strains of the James Bond theme, Craig will drop into the stadium on a rope ladder as a billion people watch on worldwide.

The nail-biting action will follow a short film by ‘Trainspotting’ film-maker Danny Boyle, the artistic director of the July 27 opening ­ceremony.


In the movie, called ‘The Arrival’, Bond visits Buckingham Palace by Royal Appointment to be told his latest mission is to launch the Games.

The Queen personally invited Craig, 44, to take part and is rumoured to make a cameo appearance.

Boyle was given unprecedented access to the Queen’s private rooms to make the film back in March. But the Palace has kept details under tight wraps.

“Daniel Craig is determined to open the ceremony with a bang and he and the BBC producers have pulled out all the stops,” a daily quoted a source as saying.

“The world will be watching and they are happy to go to any length to make sure the stunts are as thrilling as possible.


“Not only are they giving us Bond, Britain’s most iconic character, but they’re giving us suspense and drama with the helicopters and the Bond theme tune. It will be unmissable,” the source said.
