Production designer Peter Lamont confirms some Bond 22 points

17-Mar-2007 • Quantum Of Solace

Legendary production designer Peter Lamont, who has worked on 18 James Bond films to date, has confirmed some points about the 22nd 007 adventure - reports a French fansite.

Daniel Craig's second outing, due out on 7th November 2008, will be a direct continuation from the events of Casino Royale according to comments made by Lamont at the Festival of Valencians in France this week (celebrating the legacy of Pinewood Studios). It will be the first time in the Bond series that a film will be so closely related to its predecessor.

Producers Micheal G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli are currently brainstorming the Bond 22 script with writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.

Lamont also confirmed that the new 007 Stage, which is being rebuilt after last year's fire, will be slightly larger than the original.
