New Bond film name Quantum of Solace was Daniel Craigs ideaSeptember 29th, 2008 - 2:57 pm ICT by ANI
London, Sept 29 (ANI): Daniel Craig has revealed that he suggested the title Quantum of Solace for the new Bond film.
During a brainstorming session with the films producers, the James Bond star rejected more conventional titles.
Quantum of Solace is the name of a little-known short story included in Ian Flemings 1960 collection, and it was announced as the title of the 22nd Bond adventure last year.
Names were coming out, some ludicrous stuff was going back and forth I can”t remember exactly, but you know the sort of thing: ”The Blood On Your Face”. I knew I didn”t want ”death”, ”die”, ”bleed” or any of those things in the title, the Telegraph quoted him, as telling GQ.
“We had it written down on boards and we”d literally go and sit in rooms and stare at this title. If you look at ”Q’’s, they”re really weird in a title.
“As soon as it came out, people were saying, ”Ooh, it sounds like Harry Potter.” No, it’’s Quantum of Solace. I was saying, ”It’’s a Bond title! The name of a Bond film is not about anything. Live And Let Die? Octopussy? What does it mean? It means very little. We”ve got nothing to worry about,” he added.
The makers of the film have dispensed with Flemings original plot and retained only the name, which refers to the smallest unit of compassion that two people can have. (ANI)
