According to Blic Online, 007 will have a run in with a cellist in James Bond 23… but it is not so simple.

They claim that 007 will be shooting his 23rd James Bond film adventure is Serbia (despite hot tips that Bond will be off to India and South Africa) and that Jelena Mihailovic, a Serbian cellist will be involved in the production as opening theme composer.

The paper carries a quote from the performer herself:

“I am delighted to have been given the honour to meet those important people. I have had a chance to work with some established musicians like Gautier Capucon, Gary Hoffman, Christian-Pierre La Marca, Leonid Gorokhov, but now opportunities are opening up. Contact has been made and I am expecting an invitation to go to the USA soon, and until that time, I will be working on my new album, which is due to be released in October,” said Jelena, who has also been dubbed the Serbian Vanessa May.

However, the similarities between this ‘vision’ of Bond 23 and Jeffery Deaver’s ‘Carte Blanche‘ are not to be missed. Bond heads to Serbia in Deaver’s book, and the news wire even dubs the film that “new James Bond film, entitled Carte Blanche”.

Watch out for more trading on the 007 brand as news and rumors hot up!

UPDATE: The news is spreading and some bloggers and news sites are taking this as indication that Bond 23 will be Carte Blanche. Highly suspect in our book.
