Bond 22 No More: New 007 Movie Gets a Title

Producer promises to double Casino Royale's action.

It’s going to take a little getting used to, what with months of referring to it simply as Bond 22 and all, but the next 007 caper has an official title.

IGN Movies just happened to be at the film’s Pinewood Studios set Thursday when the official announcement was made: Bond 22 shall henceforth be known by its proper name, Quantum of Solace. The title, appropriately, comes from an Ian Fleming short story that originally appeared in the For Your Eyes Only collection. The synopsis of the book, according to IGN:

It revolves around a boring dinner party attended by 007 where he strikes up conversation with the elderly governor of the Bahamas. He tells Bond a story about a tragic relationship between a former civil servant and an air hostess that ends in bitter divorce. Apparently the story gets Bond thinking about his own life — and makes him realize his own adventures often do not compare to the real drama of everyday human life.

Fortunately, this has nothing to do with the plot of the movie, which will pick up where Casino Royale left off, and — according to producer Michael G. Wilson — contain “probably twice as much” action. A taste of the official synopsis follows:

Betrayed by Vesper, the woman he loved, 007 fights the urge to make his latest mission personal. Pursuing his determination to uncover the truth, Bond and M (Judi Dench) interrogate Mr White (Jesper Christensen), who reveals the organization which blackmailed Vesper is far more complex and dangerous than anyone had imagined.

Forensic intelligence links an Mi6 traitor to a bank account in Haiti where a case of mistaken identity introduces Bond to the beautiful but feisty Camille (Olga Kurylenko), a woman who has her own vendetta. Camille leads Bond straight to Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric), a ruthless businessman and major force within the mysterious organization.

On a mission that leads him to Austria, Italy and South America, Bond discovers that Greene, conspiring to take total control of one of the world’s most important natural resources, is forging a deal with the exiled General Medrano (Joaquin Cosio).

Bond 22 — sorry, Quantum of Solace — is scheduled for a November 7, 2008 release. To read more, and see pictures of the cast at the Sony press conference, click below!
