Musician Mark Ronson is to rework Duran Duran's classic hits in a one-off concert with the pop legends in France.
Ronson, who recently revealed he was working on a potential Bond theme with Amy Winehouse, is currently in the studio crafting the remixes.
He said Duran Duran "were the only band I ever idolised" and admitted he "used to take a picture of [bassist] John Taylor with me to the barber shop".
The gig will take place at La Cigale in Paris on 2 July.
Ronson will also play a set with his own band, the Version Players, with Simon Le Bon taking a guest vocal slot.
In a statement, Le Bon called Ronson "one of the biggest talents to have emerged in recent years".
"He's taking popular music in a new, exciting and fresh direction," he said. "He also looks great in a well cut suit, and has the blood and voice of an Englishman."
Although the musicians did not reveal which tracks they would be collaborating on, Duran Duran's hits include Save A Prayer, Wild Boys and Rio.
The group, renowned for their trend-setting widescreen promo videos, picked up a lifetime achievement award at the 2004 Brit awards.
Ronson has also been the recipient of a Brit prize - taking home Best British Male at this year's ceremony.
Their collaborative concert is invite-only, but will be filmed and shown around the world, according to sponsor Smirnoff.
