Quantum of Solace

Too 'generic Bond girl' for my liking; and she needs to eat. I still can't get around Craig either. It's not because he isn't handsome - that's not a prerequisite, more that he's, well, a bit of a preening tosser. Jeremy Brett looked a little like Ian Fleming - who was Bond, essentially - and he could act. I'll never know how Lazenby won that one.

Gian Maria Volonte would've been my choice to take over from Connery.

Jeremy Brett was way too effete, surely. He made Roger Moore look like Desperate Dan...and Lazenby did OK. In fact, OHMSS is my second favourite of all the Bonds. Diana Rigg :wub:

Pinch of salt time - From Comingsoon.net

Fox News' Roger Friedman is reporting that The Diving Bell and the Butterfly star Mathieu Amalric will play James Bond's villain in Bond 22 and that Leona Lewis may sing the new theme for the film. Here's a clip from the report:

Even though sources insist it's true, Amalric would neither confirm nor deny. Since his "Diving Bell" character communicates through blinking, we thought of asking him to do just that — one for yes, two for no — but thought better of it. Anyway, expect a formal announcement shortly. This is a done deal.

Daniel Craig will play 007 again in the 22nd installment.

Bit of Bond news..

Mathieu Amalric Confirmed as 007 Villain

Source: Empire Online

December 5, 2007

Fox News broke the casting several weeks ago, and now Empire magazine has confirmed it - Mathieu Amalric is the villain in Bond 22.

Amalric has received raves from critics for his role in The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.

The new James Bond movie, again starring Daniel Craig, will pick up right where Casino Royale ended and is scheduled for a November 7, 2008 release.

AICN are reporting that the film may have a very unexpected title. It mostly seems to be very tenuous speculation, but if it is real... I like it. It sounds very definitive, in the same way as "The Dark Knight" and "Rocky Balboa".

It reminds me of the time before I'd seen any of the Bond films, and when I heard that there was one called "Licence to Kill", I assumed that it must have been one of the most important ones because of its straight-to-the-point title. :(

Bad Guy now officially cast. Seems an interesting choice and we really need a good adversary for Bond. It's been ages since we had one. Also confirmed is Jeffrey Wright returning as Felix.

<a href="http://www.variety.com/article/VR111797834...yid=13&cs=1" target="_blank">http://www.variety.com/article/VR111797834...yid=13&cs=1</a>

Mathieu Amalric, who played a paralyzed stroke victim in "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly," will face off against Agent 007 in the 22nd installment in the James Bond franchise, from Columbia Pictures and MGM.

A studio exec also confirmed that Jeffrey Wright, who played CIA agent Felix Leiter in predecessor "Casino Royale," will reprise that role in "Bond 22."

Film begins shooting today at Pinewood Studios in London, nearly a month behind its original schedule. It is still scheduled to premiere on Nov. 7.

Bond-centric blogs have been abuzz with additional casting speculation. As part of a profile on "Bond 22" helmer Marc Forster, Swiss newspaper SonntagsZeitung reported that Swiss actor Anatole Taubman has been cast as a villain/henchman, though there was no confirmation from the studios. In the interview, Forster also told the newspaper that the latest pic will delve deeper into Bond's psyche.

Meanwhile, producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and the studios are on the verge of casting a female lead and will make a decision within two weeks.

Amalric, an accomplished actor in his native France, has worked with Sony before, playing a small part in Sofia Coppola's "Marie Antoinette" for the studio.

Well all the rumours are true, Gemma Arterton is the new Bond Girl.

British newcomer Gemma Arterton has been cast as the new Bond girl for the latest installment of the James Bond franchise, currently filming in London for Columbia Pictures and MGM, the film's production companies said.

Arterton will play "Fields" in the Marc Forster-directed movie, which has the working title of "Bond 22" and stars Daniel Craig as Agent 007.

Talk of Arterton's casting has been swirling around the blogosphere and in British tabloids since mid-December, but have remained unconfirmed by the producers. On Friday, Eon Prods. in London and Santa Monica-based Danjaq Prods., as well as Arterton's agent, ICM in London, confirmed the casting. Details of her character were not available, but a Danjaq rep said "it's a nice-sized role."

The film will take up where 2006's "Casino Royale" left off.

Arterton's credits include the recently released comedy "St. Trinian's," where she played schoolgirl Kelly, opposite Colin Firth and Rupert Everett. The movie, about the madcap adventures of a group of unruly girls at a boarding school, is an updated version of a movie franchise from the 1950s and '60s.

Ok, here's the official Bond 22 Girl...(this means either Arterton isn't in the film or plays a smaller female role)

Ukrainian actress Olga Kurylenko (Hitman, Paris, Je T'Aime) has been cast as the female lead in the new 007 movie, which has started principal photography under the working title Bond 22.

Returning from Casino Royale are Judi Dench as M, Jeffrey Wright as Felix Leiter and Giancarlo Giannini as Mathis. Newcomer to the Bond franchise, Gemma Arterton, will play MI6 Agent Fields. Mathieu Amalric stars as the villain.

Marc Forster directs Daniel Craig in his second outing starring as James Bond. MGM and Sony share distribution worldwide, with Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Releasing Intl. distributing worldwide on Nov. 7.

OHMSS is my number one Bond film, no matter what anybody says. Lazenby is excellent, and the film has got more story and energy than most other Bonds, without resorting to camping it up too much.

OHMSS would easily be the best Bond film if Connery was in it, but I'm not too keen on Lazenby. It's still a fantastic movie, though.

As far "Quantum of Solace"... well... hopefully it'll be one of those name you get used to after a while.

Oui Oui...
