The British-based James Bond magazine MI6 Declassified reveals that a key sequence intended for Quantum Of Solace was cut at the last minute. Here are details:
"Director Marc Forster recently revealed that he cut the final scene from the new James Bond film "Quantum of Solace".
MI6 Declassified magazine has exclusive detail on what was left on the cutting room floor. In the latest issue, the magazine reveals Mr White's ultimate fate and the identity of his superior.
Mentioned in the film as one of the Prime Minister's closest advisors, Guy Haines is also a senior member of the shadowy oganisation 'Quantum'. 007 discovers his presence during the Tosca opera scene where Dominic Greene holds a meeting of Quantum members.
The movie was originally intended to end with a one-minute sequence where 007 introduces himself to Mr Haines at his estate, setting up the next movie. The gun-barrel sequence, uniquely positioned at the end of "Quantum of Solace", would have appeared after Bond dispatches Mr White for good.
Shot over one day on location in London on April 14th 2008, MI6 Declassified scored a still from the cut scene. It can be found on page 6 of issue #4 - now available to order from www.mi6magazine.com"
