Bond title revealed!

UPDATE - Sony held the BOND 22 press conference earlier this morning, which announced the official title as QUANTUM OF SOLACE and below we have added the film's official synopsis as well as some pics of the cast from the vent.

Betrayed by Vesper, the woman he loved, 007 fights the urge to make his latest mission personal. Pursuing his determination to uncover the truth, Bond and M (JUDI DENCH) interrogate Mr White (JESPER CHRISTENSEN) who reveals the organisation which blackmailed Vesper is far more complex and dangerous than anyone had imagined.

Forensic intelligence links an Mi6 traitor to a bank account in Haiti where a case of mistaken identity introduces Bond to the beautiful but feisty Camille (OLGA KURYLENKO), a woman who has her own vendetta. Camille leads Bond straight to Dominic Greene (MATHIEU AMALRIC), a ruthless business man and major force within the mysterious organisation.

On a mission that leads him to Austria, Italy and South America, Bond discovers that Greene, conspiring to take total control of one of the world’s most important natural resources, is forging a deal with the exiled General Medrano (JOAQUIN COSIO). Using his associates in the organisation, and manipulating his powerful contacts within the CIA and the British government, Greene promises to overthrow the existing regime in a Latin American country, giving the General control of the country in exchange for a seemingly barren piece of land.

In a minefield of treachery, murder and deceit, Bond allies with old friends in a battle to uncover the truth. As he gets closer to finding the man responsible for the betrayal of Vesper, 007 must keep one step ahead of the CIA, the terrorists and even M, to unravel Greene’s sinister plan and stop his organisation.

Sony Pictures is holding a press conference this afternoon for BOND 22 where, among other things, they're expected to officially announce the film's title. But Empire Magazine believes they've got the early scoop. They're reporting that the 22nd James Bond film is titled QUANTUM OF SOLACE. Huh? Doesn't have quite the same ring as CASINO ROYALE but I suppose we'll have to wait and see what it means. As Empire explains, it is the title of an Ian Fleming short story but one that doesn't necessarily lend itself to a big-budget action film (it involves a dinner party, dull guests and offensive remarks...sounds like a weekend at the Sampson house). I'm sure they'll adjust the plot to make the Quantum of Solace some kind of weapon or jewel or something that Bond must recover. Stay tuned to JoBlo.com later today for more from the Bond press conference with appearances by stars Daniel Craig, Olga Kurylenko, Mathie Amalric and director Marc Forster.
