Musician Spills Beans On "BOND 23" Title!

on Tuesday, August 30, 2011

Serbian musician, Jelena Mihailovic revealed that she was writting the theme song for the next James Bond film. She said that the title of the song was "Carte Blanche", which is funningly enough the same title as Jeffery Deaver's latest James Bond novel, which was released earlier this year.
She spilled the beans at the during one of her concerts that was being held at the Cannes Film Festival. The news came from an online website. Once they got it from her, everyone online got it from them. This is what the site said about her, "At one of the many concerts [Mihailovic] held in France during the Cannes Film Festival, the producers and the director of the next Bond film were in the audience, who were staggered by what they had heard and on the spot offered Jelena a chance to write the opening score for the new James Bond film, entitled Carte Blanche."
"Although the 23rd James Bond film is still in its early production phase, when it comes to the music, Jelena reveals her opening score will be a mixture of the recognisable Bond theme sound and a more classical touch."
Now I don't know if she is just writting the lyrics or if she will indeed being singing the song also, but I'm sure we'll all find out soon enough.
The question is, Is this really the title of "BOND 23"? Or is it just the name of the song, because I've got the book and I've read parts of it. It's really a different "BOND" univerese than the one we all know. Would deffo change the BIG-screen franchise drastically. The book is about James Bond coming out of the Royal Naval Reserve and joins a new operations team, Overseas Development Group (ODG), which is a covert unit for British security. Meaning there's no MI6, there is though still a Felix Leiter and MoneyPenny. And there is still a "M" character, but not the "M" we all know.
The story is a complete reboot of the Ian Flemming franchise, and not just a reboot like 2006's "Casino Royale". Deaver totally updates Bonds background. Instead of fighting in WWI and WWII, he was instead fighting in the war in Afghanistan.
If this is going to be the plot for the next James Bond film, I really don't think they'll use the full story. Probably just the areas where Bond travels too and the missions and possibly some of the characters and even a villain or two.
The title is cool, but I'd rather it be something like the previous novel, "Devil May Cry", etc......
