Actually, "The World is Not Enough" is the motto on the Bond family crest; this is referenced in On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

Apparently, I'm in the minority: the clueless and illiterate hate it.

sweet title. Hopefully it'll be as good as Casino Royale, or better of course.

Wait no longer.


New Bond film titled `Quantum of Solace'

IVER HEATH, England - "Quantum of Solace" is the title of the new James Bond film, the 22nd Bond adventure.

The title was revealed to reporters Thursday at Pinewood Studios outside of London, where the movie is being filmed.

Producer Michael G. Wilson said the title, chosen only a few days ago, was taken from a story by Bond creator Ian Fleming that appears in the collection "For Your Eyes Only."

"We thought it was an intriguing title and referenced what happened to Bond and what is happening in the film," he said.

Daniel Craig is returning as Agent 007. He picks up where 2006's "Casino Royale" left off, with Bond contemplating revenge after his betrayal by his true love, Vesper Lynd.

"It is not a revenge movie," said co-producer Barbara Broccoli. "It's a lot more complicated than that. It has lots of action but it also deals with the inner turmoil Bond is feeling."

Filming began at Pinewood Studios earlier this month. Location shooting is planned in Austria, Italy and Panama. Judi Dench returns as the MI-6 boss M and Mathieu Amalric ("The Diving Bell and the Butterfly") plays the villain. Additions to the cast include Ukrainian actress Olga Kurylenko as mysterious Bond girl Camille.

"Quantum of Solace" is set to open in Britain and the United States on Nov. 7.

A casting notice for the next 007 film; I find it odd that the report states the film will be based on Ian Fleming's short story "Risico," since it was already used as part of the source of 1981's For Your Eyes Only; I'm still waiting for them to use "Quantum of Solace" as a film title.

Trinian's star 'is new Bond girl'

St Trinian's star Gemma Arterton has been cast as a Bond girl in the latest 007 film, according to industry paper The Hollywood Reporter.

The 21-year-old actress will play a character called Fields in the movie, which has the working title of Bond 22.

No other details were available, but a representative for the film's producer, Danjaq Productions, told the paper it was "a nice-sized role".

Filming has already started and the movie is due for release in November.

Arterton was most recently seen starring opposite Rupert Everett as an unruly pupil in a revival of the 1950s boarding school films.

Her casting continues the tradition of Bond producers choosing less established actresses for the coveted part, including Ursula Andress in Dr No, Jane Seymour in Live and Let Die and Eva Green in Casino Royale.

The Kent-born actress joins Daniel Craig, who will be playing the role of 007 for a second time.

It is thought the new film will take up where Casino Royale left off and will be loosely based on the Ian Fleming short story Risico, where Bond is dispatched to infiltrate a drug ring flooding Britain with heroin.

Producers last week confirmed French actor Mathieu Amalric will join the cast to play Bond's main adversary.
