James Bond Alumni to Return in 007 Legends
The entire premise of Activision’s upcoming game, 007 Legends, is to bring together the various incarnations and interpretations of James Bond lore in glorious harmony. What better way to do just that than to bring the original talent on board? It was recently announced that two actors and one writer are involved in the project.
Bruce Feirstein, a writer with notable contributions to the Bond franchise, has been working on the script for 007 Legends along with Eurocom’s own Rob Matthews. Feirstein’s previous credits include scripting/story duties on Goldeneye (1995), Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), and The World is Not Enough (1999). Feirstein’s work has also extended into the realm of video games, including Everything or Nothing (2004), From Russia With Love (2005), Blood Stone (2010), and Goldeneye 007 (2010/11).
Richard Kiel will be reprising his role as Jaws, the villain from The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) and Moonraker (1979), in the adaptation of the latter film. Also returning from the original Moonraker is Michael Lonsdale, who portrayed Hugo Drax. Both actors will be providing their voice and likeness for the game.
007 Legends is being developed by Eurocom and will be published by Activision for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on October 16th, 2012.
