Quantum Leap

Bond is back, and he finally has a name for his next adventure: Quantum of Solace.

... Really rolls off the tongue, doesn't it?

Taken from the Ian Fleming short story collection For Your Eyes Only, the new moniker joins other incomprehensible 007 titles as A View to a Kill and The Living Daylights, not to mention Octopussy. For their sakes, let's hope whoever writes the theme song doesn't have to find any words that rhyme with "solace".

In other "Movie Formerly Known as Bond 22" news, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly's Mathieu Amalric has been cast as the big bad, while Ukrainian model/actress Olga Kurylenko is charged with the enviable task of playing the latest Bond girl opposite Daniel Craig (lucky bitch). Judi Dench and Jeffrey Wright return as M and Felix Leiter, respectively, with The Kite Runner's Marc Forster at the helm. Quantum of Solace will hit theaters November 7th.
