There’s always some speculation every few years on what the next James Bond movie will be called and now, it’s ofﬁcial: Quantum of Solace.
It’s one of the few Ian Fleming title names left, this time from one of the late author’s short stories in the For Your Eyes Only anthology.
Some fans had speculated on the possibility of this title in the 1980s as Eon Productions, the company behind the ﬁlms, began using Bond creator Fleming’s short story titles (e.g. The Living Daylights in 1987).
The movie is intended to be a direct sequel to the 2006 hit, Casino Royale, and Daniel Craig reprises his role as Bond.
In Quantum of Solace, to be released November 7, Bond seeks vengeance for the death of Vesper Lynd, played in the previous ﬁlm by Eva Green.
As Casino Royale was based on Ian Fleming’s ﬁrst James Bond novel, the ﬁlmmakers may wish to retain more of the literary elements of the character. It might be fair to speculate that the third Daniel Craig story, if the newest ﬁlms are to be a trilogy, will also have a Fleming title.
For more information, the BBC website has an interview with Daniel Craig and an exclusive look at one of the sets at Pinewood Studios.
