British Tabloid Rumor: BOND 23 Will Be Titled RED SKY AT NIGHT

We started off the week with some James Bond news, so let’s finish it up with some more.

The British tabloid The Sun is reporting that producers have already settled on a title for the upcoming Bond film that are still referring publicly to as Bond 23. Supposedly, the film will be titled Red Sky At Night. Now I think we’re all aware of the reliability level for the British tabloids, especially the Sun, so I think we can pretty much discount this story, as well as the Sun’s assertions that the producers are chasing after Rachel Weisz to play the villain of the film.

Eon Productions, the Bond series producers, still have the rights to four of Ian Fleming’s Bond short stories whose titles they haven’t used yet for a Bond film – “The Property of a Lady”, “Risico”, “007 In New York” and “The Hildebrand Rarity.” I could see any of them being used, with the exception of “007 In New York” which echoes a low grade entry in MGM’s old Tarzan series, as a title before going out and creating a new one.

But if the story does turn out to be true, will The Fixx get to perform the theme song?
