So, it looks like the new Bond has it's name and story, and it's accidentally leaked out.
If you don't want to know until the official releases, you can stop reading here.
Jelena Mihailovic is a Serbian cellist and, apparently, she performed in front of Sam Mendes and some James Bond “producers” at Cannes. So “staggered” were they by what she was doing, they allegedly asked her to provide “the opening score” for Bond 23.
"At one of the many concerts the musician 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."
Now, the question is this:
Do we assume that Jelena used the name of the film when speaking to a reporter, not understanding that she probably shouldn’t?
So what makes us think this is correct instead of some kind of rumor? Well, Carte Blanche is the name a new Bond novel. Not only that, we spoke about how part of the movie could be taking place on a train. Here's the synopsis of the book:
[Bond] starts his assignment on the outskirts of Novi Sad in Serbia where an Irish sapper-turned-enforcer named Niall Dunne is planning to derail a train carrying three hundred kilograms of methyl isocyanate, dumping it into the Danube. Bond is able to prevent the catastrophe by derailing the train himself at a much safer place along the line. He is unable to detain Dunne, who kills Bond’s Serbian contacts in the course of his escape.
Boom. A train.
There are a lot of What Ifs here, but to us it seems pretty legit!
So the plot thickens — do U believe this is the title and story??
