Next Bond Won't Be A Sequel To Quantum Of Solace, Thank God

Illustration for article titled Next Bond Wont Be A Sequel To Quantum Of Solace, Thank God

Here's an idea: let's pretend Quantum Of Solace never happened, ok? We'll just overlook that Jason Bourne wannabe Bond flick, and Daniel Craig can remain the smooth talking card shark from Casino Royale. Well good news dreamers — the next Bond has nothing to do with Quantum, according to Craig.


When asked by Collider if the next Bond flick will be a follow up to Quantum, in line with director Marc Forester's wishes, Daniel Craig clearly stated:

No fucking way. I'm done with that story. I want to lie on a beach for the first half an hour of the next movie drinking a cocktail.


Craig knows what keeps the Bond franchise ticking: it's designer suits and sexy girls, without all the dramatic baggage. But wait, there's more. Craig's excited about the next movie because:

"We've finished this story as far as I'm concerned. We've got a great set of bad guys. There is an organization that we can use whenever we want to. The relationship between Bond and M is secure and Felix is secure. Let's try and find where Moneypenny came from and where Q comes from. Let's do all that and have some fun with it."

Yes, fun — I remember fun. Let's hope Craig gets his way and brings sexy back to the 007 franchise.

Also, get a better title than Quantum of Shit, er Solace and better writers.

I really liked Casino Royale and what the production team did. Quantum of Shit suddenly made me consider that the Living Daylights and George Lazenby weren't so bad after all.
