Providing confirmation to the speculation on the return of James Bond's signature opening sequence in "Quantum of Solace", the official 007 blog has released a new featurette about the title sequence. In the form of crew files video, the footage focuses on the two title shoot directors, Ben Randatz and Tim Fisher and displays behind-the-scenes footage of the sequence filming.
In it, the director duo for design collective called MK12 revealed that they are co-directing the opening credits for the 22nd Bond movie. "What do you think about naked women and lasers? That's how we pitch every title design that our studio has ever done and then once that's knocked away, we try and get to something more practical," Fisher opens up in the beginning.
He then continues sharing his idea on the sequence, "But this time around, it's an interesting challenge starting with Casino Royale and then in Quantum of Solace, Bond is reinventing himself, so our challenge is to pay homage to title sequences in the past and be respectful of the ground that's been covered with the franchise, but also update that and give it some new life and new energy."
Throwing the superspy agent in one of the most complex missions he has ever done, the Columbia Pictures flick is directed by Marc Forster with a script penned by a team of writers, Robert Wade, Neal Purvis and Paul Haggis. It features the likes of Daniel Craig, Mathieu Amalric, Gemma Arterton, Olga Kurylenko, Giancarlo Giannini, Judi Dench, Jeffrey Wright, etc. It is due to be released in the theaters nationwide on November 14.
