Bond 22 Title Revealed

The next James Bond movie will be titled......

Quantum of Solace

Well, I swear I'm being serious about it. So many sources. Valid sources. Press conferences with the stars and writers have confirmed this. Quite unorthodox for a 007 movie title, but then again it's part of the reboot started with Casino Royale in 2006. QoS stars Daniel Craig who reprises his role as a younger British super spy James Bond and the story continues from its predecessor. Judi Dench returns as "M" for the 6th time, Jeffrey Wright returns as CIA ally Felix Leiter, and French actor Mathieu Amalric plays the villain. As far as the Bond girls go, yes they still exist, young English actress Gemma Arterton will play an MI6 field agent, while Hitman's Ukranian born actress Olga Kurylenko plays the kick-ass and bitter girl. I hope Arterton's character doesn't go stray else it'll be a similar sub-plot as Die Another Day.

Shooting for this film is taking place/will take place in the UK, Italy, Panama, Austria and Bolivia.

Like every Bond movie, I look forward to this one... despite the title which almost make it sound like a Sci-Fi movie where the hero gets lost in space! However, Daniel Craig and the reboot as a whole surprised most of us in Casino Royale, thus this film should be a worthwhile entertainer too. Modest to high expectations.
