On my reading of the report, the reference to the movie title as Carte Blanche just strikes me as lazy journalism, someone confusing the new book title with the new movie, which hasn't yet been titled. An excitable internet journalist has then put two and two together and made 5.
This would be correct.

It should also be noted that this movie has been written (though it may be subject to re-writes) and planned since long before Deaver's book was released.

I don't really like the title and I'm someone who loved Quantum of Solace as a title.

Indeed. This is what my original point was. It's probably a combination of lazy journalism and speculation really. I only posted it because it was the first real "news" (I use that term very loosely) of a possible title.

Getting back to Moonraker Discussion, it's a fucking terrible movie (like much of Moore's tenure ... imagine that), but it's watchable on a sheer amazement level because of Ken Adam's sets. The guy designed the hell out of that movie, and it's a shame that those designs are overlooked just because the rest of the movie was so awful.

And I still really like The World is Not Enough. Great score, relatively good script ... it's just hampered by Denise Richards having all the charisma of a dog's chew toy.

I enjoyed TWINE, too, and I think it'd have a much better reputation if Christmas Jones had been played by a more competent actor.

As for the Carte Blanche rumors...eh. The story sounds interesting, but I'm not a fan of the title.

Re: "James Bond 23" officially slated for 2012!

I'm not the biggest Bond fan, but I really liked World is Not Enough. Richards' role didn't seem that big to bother me, and besides, she was so fine, I didn't mind seeing her show up. I thought Elektra was great as was Renard; one of the best of the recent henchmen. Of the Brosnan movies this one was my favorite. (Granted, I haven't seen all of Goldeneye, but it was better than the boring Tomorrow Never Dies and the silly Die Another Day). I hope that a Bond movie will use the Devil May Care title sometime down the road (not the plot of the book necessarily; maybe the villain and scrap just about everything else). Devil May Care just sounds so Bondish. I also like Carte Blanche as a movie title too.

I don't know if the Craig Bond should have grand titles anyway. He's more of a hard hitting, terse Bond anyway; maybe the movie titles should reflect that.

and not called Carte Blanche

So, so much for that "news"

India = good. I wonder if it will be standing in for Afghanistan given that was mentioned early on as a possible location?

^ Hell, maybe by the time this comes out, we'll be supporting the Taliban against the Northern Alliance or whoever...

I think she's been asked to put forth a submission. Otherwise it seems way too early for them to be signing a singer, let alone recording a song for the film...before the damn thing starts filming.
