EA Games has signed Sean Connery to reprise his role as James Bond in the upcoming "From Russia With Love" set to be released sometime this fall. Sean Connery will record all new dialogue for the game, and his likeness will be taken from the 1963 movie and used in the new game along with most of the other principal characters from that movie.
After last years disappointing "Goldeneye: Rogue Agent" which let you play in the shoes of a bad guy, From Russa With Love will return to the shoes of Bond, and allow you to kill lots of baddies with all sorts of neat gadgets. The new game is set to be released long ahead of the upcoming Bond movie "Casino Royale" which will not be released until 2006. "As an artist, I see this as another way to explore the creative process," Sean Connery said in an official statement. "Video games are an extremely popular form of entertainment today, and I am looking forward to seeing how it all fits together."
