Surprise, surprise: a new Quantum of Solace Blu-ray/DVD is in the works.
Just days after the 22nd James Bond film has hit home video, director Marc Forster has revealed to the Toronto Sun that he will be working on a bigger and better edition.
‘With this first DVD, it all happened pretty fast and I didn’t really have the time. I was only a little bit involved. But I will be working on the second DVD. I will be much more involved in that, putting pieces on,’ said Forster.
New special features will include audio commentaries and behind-the-scenes featurettes, among others. ‘It is much more in-depth,’ he stated.
However, the Quantum director isn’t quite sure exactly how much he wants to reveal about the making of this Bond film.
He said: ‘It used to be that cinema was magic for us and we really didn’t know how certain things were done. It was the sense of this mystery box. Today, because of DVD, people are so aware of how everything is being realized. And I think there are still certain things that should remain a mystery because that makes it interesting.’
One particular item he is debating about is the original cliffhanger ending to the film in which Daniel Craig’s 007 confronts Mr. White. Originally tipped to be included on this first DVD/Blu-ray release of the film, the one-minute long scene also includes the cut ‘Bond, James Bond’ line.
‘It wasn’t cut because of that sentence,’ Forster explains. ‘It was cut for other reasons. I think it worked but it is still better how it is. It’s not on this DVD and we are still discussing whether we should put it in the next one. On one hand, I think it would be cool for the audience to see it. On the other hand, I think it would be more interesting to keep it a mystery.’
