New James Bond Film Gets A Name, Quantom of Solance
Sony Pictures has announced that the newest installment of the James Bond series of movies will be titled, "Quantum of Solace". The title was taken from a short story that Ian Fleming, creator of James Bond, published in 1960.
The 22nd film in the series will follow 007, played by Daniel Craig, as he seeks revenge and travels to Austria, Italy and South America in order to find it. He encounters Camille. played by Olga Kurylenko, and she leads him to Dominic Greene, played by Mathieu Amalric, who is a member of a mysterious organization as well as being a ruthless businessman looking to control huge natural resources. "James Bond is after revenge, and Camille is after revenge and they have slightly different goals, but in the end they are going to have to collaborate," Kurylenko said.
The film picks up where Casino Royale left off, and Bond tries to find out why Vesper had betrayed him. He comes to find out that she was blackmailed.
Some scenes of the film were shown to reports at a conference at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire. The scenes included Bond meeting up with M, played by Dame Judy Dench, and Bond swinging from a rope after an explosion at an art gallery.
Bond girls Kurylenko and Gemma Arterton are both preparing for their roles in the film. Kurylenko says she won't be the typical Bond girl. "I'm doing weapons training and body flight training for aerial scenes and stunt work for fighting," she said. "My days are so long, and it's very physical. She's a fighter. This girl is going to kick ass. She's on her own mission and she's driven by revenge." Arterton plays an M16 agent, and when speaking of her love scenes with Daniel Craig she says, "I felt like a giggly girl, and I felt so young and inexperienced - but I kissed James Bond!" She also says that her character is "fresh and young, not sultry and a femme fatale".
