Quantum of Solace

The latest movie site to feature a well put together widget is from the Sony Pictures website, for the 22nd James Bond movie; "Quantum of Solace". When "Casino Royale" became a critical and commercial success in 2006, this time round Daniel Craig hasn't had to put up with all the "would he a proper Bond?" as when it was first announced that he would be Pierce Brosnan's replacement. I loved "Casino Royale" and this one looks like it could be just as good. "Quantum Of Solace" was originally a short story, which incidentally has been selling well as part of a re-jacketed Penguin paperback edition already.. "Quantum of Solace" has been scripted as a direct sequel to Casino Royale as the story begins "an hour after" the end of the previous film. It is directed by Marc Forster whose most recent film was the Oscar nominated "The Kite Runner". He also directed "Monster's Ball" (2001), "Finding Neverland" (2004) and "Stranger Than Fiction" (2006). "Quantum of Solace" is released in Ireland and the UK on the 31st October and on November 7th in the US.
