What the 'Quantum' in Quantum of Solace Stands For
Posted 10.21.08 by reelz
Ever since the title of the new James Bond flick,
Quantum of Solace, was unveiled in January, 007 fans have been scratching their
heads trying to determine just what the heck the puzzling moniker means.
As it turns out, "Quantum" is name of the
shadowy terrorist organization alluded to -- but never identified -- in 2006's Casino
Royale. Quantum features much more prominently in the storyline of the latest
film, which picks up just one hour after its predecessor.
Whether Quantum will be the new SPECTRE (a fixture
of earlier Connery/Moore Bond flicks) is unclear at this point, as work on the next
007 script has yet to begin. But can fans expect Quantum to appear in some capacity
in future chapters of the franchise? "That's the plan," Quantum of Solace producer
Barbara Broccoli told us yesterday. Check out what we also learned about what could
be in store for Bond 23 and beyond.
