This is not a belated April Fool’s joke. Sean Connery as agreed to return to the role that made him famous, James Bond 007. He is lending his vocal talents to a new computer game being developed by Electronic Arts based on the movie From Russia With Love. Connery’s voice will be matched with a digitally animated version of his likeness from the 1963 film, the second in the Bond canon. The other main characters from the film will be reproduced digitally as well. The game is scheduled for a fall release on PlayStation 2, Xbox, and GameCube.
Since the film franchise is currently without a leading man, this is the coolest Bond news we’ll have for a while.
