Plot details for Quantum of Solace (fka Bond 22)

CBn says:

Producer Michael G. Wilson stated that the title was only decided a few days ago and added that Quantum of Solace would begin ‘literally an hour after the last film left off.’ ‘We thought it was an intriguing title and referenced what happened to Bond and what is happening in the film,’ he said.

Read the whole article, it’s loaded with news. In short:

More action, lots of gadgets. Barbara Broccoli says it’s not a revenge movie, but Olga Kurylenko says it is. “Camille” is after a different sort of revenge, and she teams with Bond.

Empire Online says:

The plot centres on an attempted coup in a South American country. Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric), who works behind the cover of an organisation called Green Planet, wants to control one of the world’s most important natural resources and to aid in this he makes a deal with an exiled South American general to get him back into power.

Olga Kurylenko’s character, Camille, is half Ukrainian and half South American. She leads Bond to Greene in his effort to find out more about Vesper, the woman he loved and lost in Casino Royale.

“James Bond is after revenge, and Camille is after revenge,” Kurylenko said. “They have slightly different goals, but in the end they are going to have to collaborate”. Kurylenko is currently still in training for her role, but has yet to shoot any scenes. “I’m doing weapons training and body flight training for aerial scenes and stunt work for fighting,” she continued. “My days are so long, and it’s very physical. She’s a fighter. This girl is going to kick ass. She’s on her own mission and she’s driven by revenge

Gemma Arterton’s character, Agent Fields, is an MI6 agent working at the British consulate in Bolivia. Shooting will take place in Panama and Chile. Arterton has already shot love scenes with Bond. “I felt like a giggly girl, and I felt so young and inexperienced – but I kissed James Bond!” she said, adding that her character is “fresh and young, not sultry and a femme fatale”.

Mathieu Amalric says his villain will not be a larger than life figure. He said “He’s not an over the top villian…No scars, no metal jaw – he is nude”. We believe he meant no visual odditties, rather than Bond’s first all naked nemesis.
