And the 22nd Bond film will be called...[NVGR, obviously]

Quantum of Solace.

It’s a rather dumb name, if you ask me. According to Producer Michael G. Wilson, the title was only picked a few days ago, and it was taken from the title of a story by Ian Fleming in the collection “For Your Eyes Only”. I guess they anticipated a backlash from fans regarding the nature of the title, as Wilson also said, “We thought it was an intriguing title and referenced what happened to Bond and what is happening in the film.”

Filming commenced earlier this month; the movie will shoot on-location in Austria, Italy, and Panama (I wonder if the trailer will feature Van Halen, à la Superbad). Currently, the release date is set for Friday, November 7, in the US and Britain. Other than the questionable title, though, I’m stoked! I absolutely loved Casino Royale, and I eagerly await the post-Election Day weekend!
