24 JANUARY 2008
PRESS CONFERENCE FOR BOND 22

The title for Bond 22 revealed at press conference held at Pinewood Studios, January 24, 2008.

The next James Bond film is to be called QUANTUM OF SOLACE, producers have confirmed.

The title is taken from one of a collection of short stories published by 007 creator Ian Fleming in 1960.

Producer Michael Wilson said the film would have "twice as much action" as 2006's CASINO ROYALE, which saw Daniel Craig debut as the iconic secret agent.

The next outing, previously known as Bond 22, is partly being shot at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire.
At a press conference at the facility, reporters were shown a minute of footage from the new film, including Bond swinging on a rope after an explosion at an art gallery in Siena, Italy.

Another scene showed him meeting M - played by Dame Judi Dench - outside in the snow.

Filming on the movie has been taking place at Pinewood since November.

"He's looking for revenge, you know, to make himself happy with the world again", Daniel Craig on James Bond in the new film.
Craig said the cryptic title referenced how Bond's heart had been broken at the end of CASINO ROYALE.
"Ian Fleming had written about relationships," he explained. "When they go wrong, when there's nothing left, when the spark has gone, when the fire's gone out, there's no quantum of solace.
"And at the end of the last movie, Bond has the love of his life taken away from him and he never got that quantum of solace." Craig said the new film would follow 007 as he goes out "to find the guy who's responsible".
"So he's looking for revenge, you know, to make himself happy with the world again". "But it the title also alludes to something else in the film," he added.

'Driven by revenge'
Olga Kurylenko, who plays Bond girl Camille in the film, said that she has yet to film any scenes, but was working hard preparing for her role.
"I'm doing weapons training and body flight training for aerial scenes and stunt work for fighting," she said. "This girl is going to kick ass. She's on her own mission and she's driven by revenge."
But it is not clear whether Camille is a secret agent.

French actor Mathieu Amalric, who plays the villainous Dominic Greene, told reporters his character had "the smile of Tony Blair and the crazy eyes of Nicholas Sarkozy".
Actress Gemma Arterton plays an MI6 agent in the film and has already shot her love scenes with 007.
She said: "I felt like a giggly girl, and I felt so young and inexperienced - but I kissed James Bond!"
The 21-year-old, who recently starred in the St Trinian's film, said her Bond role is "not so frolicsome" and her character "fresh and young, not sultry and a femme fatale".

'Pretty prickly'
Dame Judi Dench, who returns for her sixth Bond film, said: "I get to do more in this one, which is brilliant." She hinted that her character's relationship with Bond would be "pretty prickly".

Rumours about the name had grown after fans noticed that film studio Sony had bought the domain name quantumofsolace.com.
But co-producer Michael G. Wilson said the name had only been decided "a few days ago", adding the story's start point would be "literally an hour after the last film left off".

Asked if CASINO ROYALE star Eva Green would appear in QUANTUM OF SOLACE, co-producer Barbara Broccoli said: "There are no flashbacks in the film, but she's certainly on Bond's mind."

Director Marc Forster is in charge of work on the movie, which is due for release on 7 November.
