Adjust font size:

The title for the 22nd James Bond film featuring the world famous smooth British secret agent was unveiled as Quantum of Solace 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.

Actor Daniel Craig took up the role of James Bond for 2006's Casino Royale and was the first to portray the special agent as a blue-eyed blonde. He took up the part once more, this time amidst confidence in his adequacy as 007, in the upcoming Quantum of Solace.

"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, directed by Marc Forster for Columbia Pictures and MGM, is due for release in theatres on Nov. 7 this year.
