Next Bond film called 'Quantum of Solace'

 

IVER HEATH, England (AFP) — "Quantum of Solace" was unveiled Thursday as the title of the next James Bond film at the launch of the superspy's latest adventure.

 

The name for the movie, directed by Marc Forster, and until now provisionally titled "Bond 22", was revealed at Pinewood Studios, west of London, where filming is already underway.

 

"Quantum of Solace" was the name of a short story in Bond creator Ian Fleming's 1960 anthology "For Your Eyes Only".

 

Daniel Craig is reprising his role as 007, following his 2006 debut in "Casino Royale".

 

The new movie will also star Ukrainian model and actress Olga Kurylenko as the new Bond girl, with French actor Mathieu Amalric -- currently starring in "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly" -- cast as the main villian.

 

"Quantum of Solace" is set to be released later this year.

James Bond is out for revenge in new film

By Mike Collett-White

 

IVER HEATH (Reuters) - New James Bond film "Quantum of Solace" sees the British super spy out for revenge on a mission that takes him to Austria, Italy and South America.

 

British actor Daniel Craig is back with a license to kill after critics and cinema-goers hailed his debut in "Casino Royale" in 2006, and the first blond Bond looks set to continue the role longer term.

 

"We have talked about doing some more films with him and he seems very happy to do that," said veteran Bond producer Barbara Broccoli. "So we will do it one at a time."

 

First details of the 22nd installment in the Bond franchise, including its name and plot details, were unveiled on Thursday at Pinewood studios near London.

 

Co-producer Michael Wilson said the title was taken from a short story by Ian Fleming, the author who created Bond.

 

"We thought it was an intriguing title and referenced what is happening to Bond and what happens in the film," he told reporters.

 

In the film new Bond girl Camille, played by Ukrainian-born Olga Kurylenko, leads the secret agent to Dominic Greene, a member of a mysterious organization and ruthless businessman who is conspiring to control huge natural resources.

 

The plot follows on directly from "Casino Royale", as Bond aims to uncover the truth about Vesper, the beauty who seemingly betrayed him.

 

"James Bond is after revenge, and Camille is after revenge … They have slightly different goals, but in the end they are going to have to collaborate," Kurylenko told reporters.

 

"WORST BOND TITLE EVER?"

 

Several reporters at the press launch questioned whether the film makers should have opted for a snappier title. A blogger for the Guardian newspaper was already asking whether it was the "worst Bond title ever?"

 

Craig defended the name. "At the end of the last movie his heart's been broken and he doesn't have that quantum of solace, he doesn't have that ... closure on what happened in his life and he needs to find out," he told Reuters in an interview.

 

"What is great about it is it also applies to something very important in the plot," he said during a break from filming.

 

Wilson said "Quantum" contained about twice as many action sequences as "Casino Royale", which was praised for relying less on gadgets and special effects and making the Bond character more realistic and vulnerable.

 

The villain Greene is played by Frenchman Mathieu Amalric, who starred in the Oscar-nominated "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly".

 

He said he drew inspiration from several European political leaders.

 

"I was trying to see the smile of Tony Blair, maybe Nicolas Sarkozy -- it's the worst villain we ever had," he said.

 

British actress Judi Dench is back as Bond's boss M.

 

"The thing about James Bond, isn't it that it appeals to an incredible cross section of people?" she said.

 

"The appeal for my grandson's friends is fantastic and ... probably for their fathers too."

 

On a tour of the main Bond set at Pinewood, journalists were shown three stages, all set in the Italian city of Siena.

 

In the largest, two actors, including Craig's stunt double, swung from ropes and fought in an old art gallery.

 

"Quantum of Solace" is directed by German-born Marc Forster and due for release in November.

Just a point that actually interests me about the Bond film, as we all know Ford has the rights to the product placement in the film, hence why he was back in the Aston Martin in the recent ones. However Ford have recently sold Aston, so it would of made sense that he would be in a Jag instead...except Ford has just Jag aswell, so what car is he going to be driving? The new Focus? Or maybe a Volvo? Somehow I feel the big appeal of the bond car would be lost if he was driving a Volvo estate!

A Ford Ka and Aston Martin, had to pay extra to use the Aston again though.

I hope it's better than Casino Royale which was probably the worst Bond movie I've seen (the only one I don't remember seeing is IHMSS), I only got to the torture scene before I turned over due to sheer boredom. It was faithful(ish) to the book, which I liked, but it just dragged as a movie. IMO the Bond movies have always been about Guns, Gadgets and Girls, preferably with suggestive sounding names (Honor Blackman's P*ssy Galore being a personal favourite), which were sorely lacking in CR.

Totally agree with you. It just didn't feel like a Bond film, and I don't even think i got that far before I turned it off... I never usually turn off films either.

You serious?

 

I thought it was the best Bond film in absolutely ages. Probably since Golden Eye.

 

Every Bond film since then (bar Casino Royale) was utter tripe, with incredibly stale plots, ridiculously over the top and farcical stunts and action sequences, and absolutely no soul or logic whatsoever.

 

Girls were lacking? Eva Green? the dead chick?

Lacking of guns? Doesn't he shoot his way through an African embassy?

Gadgets were perhaps lacking.

 

But they had to move away from it becoming a self parody. Austin Powers had shown the world how unbelievably silly Bond films were. We all knew it anyway, but they used it, to show the contemporary audience how outdated and cliched Bond films were compared to modern day thrillers dealing with similar concepts like Bourne Identity etc.

 

And what did Bond do? Make the gadgets even sillier, the stunts even stupider and the dialogue even worse. They were becoming a laughing stock.

 

Casino Royale put Bond back where it should be. The agent film which sets the bar for the time period.

 

So yeah baffled you didn't like it, I mean I thought Die Another Day was one of the worst films I've ever seen...

Casino Royale....bad?

 

Some movie watchers liscenses may have to be revoked.

 

It'd added depth and realism that hasn't been shone before.

 

And the gadgets thing isn't a legit complaint, it's effectively a series reboot. We're at the making of the fan, and it's infinitely better than the Pierce Brosman films (despite the fact that Pierce is a boss).

 

Honestly, I rate this new Bond movement above all others. I'm a sucker for substance. Not to mention, it's gorgeous in a cinematography sense.

See, I really enjoyed the opening sequence... I just found the rest of it got a little boring before I turned it off. I may need to give it another shot at watching it, but at the moment I'm in the mind that I didn't like it.

My personal fave is Live and Let Die simply because it fits the time period perfectly. But so does Casino Royale, where as the likes of Die Another Day and The World is Not Enough was like watching Carry On films when you could have Abi Titmuss do a private dance for you to the sound of the Blue Peter theme tune.

With the sucess of the Bourne films. The Bond films had to go in the direction that Casino Royale went otherwise Bond films were in danger of becoming spoofs of earlier Bonds. The arrival of Jason Bourne on the big screen really was one of the best things to happen to Bond.

 

Die Another Day actully started rather well i thought, and had real potential using the Korean backdrop. Unfortunatly the film went quickly downhill.

 

CR brought back the realism that Bond needed, the end of the Cold War really was the worst thing to happen to the Bond franchise, a point that was actully made in the script of CR with a off the cuff remark from M.

 

Fans of Eva Green check out The Dreamers, you'll love it.
