The Hildebrand Rarity

Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, erstwhile James Bond warhorses, appear to have let slip that, in fact, Fleming's short story The Hildebrand Rarity has been the key source for 'story elements' in the next film.

On the matter of Bond, the Carice van Houten story started here at film ick. Since it went wide, sneaking into just about every last corner of the international rumourweb, I had one more e-mail from my source. Simply, it said "Notice that there have been no denials from her people - or from Eon", or words to that effect (I've deleted it, unfortunately).

And indeed, I haven't seen a single denial from anyone.
