It seems the environmental forces swirling around the world have infiltrated the plot line of the next James Bond film, Quantum of Solace. Earlier, we mentioned how cool we thought it was to have Bond driving a fuel-efficient vehicle in the opening chase scene (yes, we get our kicks from that) — but now it appears the entire movie will revolve around a villain posing as an eco-entrepreneur. From the article,
“The building is supposed to be an “eco-hotel,” a buried tropical oasis amid this wasteland designed to lure the rich and powerful with the latest environmental technology. The hotel is a front for the villain, Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric, the French star of The Diving Bell and the Butterfly), a tycoon using a “Save the Earth” facade to hide his plan to seize control of part of South America’s water supply.”
Oh, snap! So Mr. Greene isn’t really “green”! Get it?!
Let’s hope this guy converts a solar concentrator or two into a laser beam or something — because seriously, we can’t do with another lame villain like that Elliott Carver in Tomorrow Never Dies. “I’m going to take over the world’s cable networks!” Oooh…scary!
One question remains: Will this new eco-villain offer Tom Cruise Purple at the eco-hotel?
