Electronic Arts announced earlier today that actor Pierce Brosnan is set to 'star' in NightFire. Of course, he won't be seen in quite the same way as he will in Die Another Day. EA reached an agreement with Pierce to use the actor's likeness for the game.
"Pierce Brosnan and Bond have created an unbeatable combination for the franchise over the past few years, so we're excited to have Pierce aboard to help deliver to fans the ultimate Bond experience," says Chip Lange, VP of Electronic Arts marketing. "I am confident that together, Pierce Brosnan, EA and NightFire will make for the most dynamic and appealing Bond game yet."
Neil Haldar, Vice President of Production and Business Development for MGM Interactive, observes, "We welcome this fantastic opportunity to collaborate with Brosnan, who so masterfully personifies James Bond, and to re-team with a great partner like Electronic Arts on Nightfire to deliver the finest integration of creativity and technology to date."
NightFire is scheduled for a simultaneous release on the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system, Xbox video game system , Nintendo GameCube and PC-CD. The release of the game will occur world-wide in November, to co-incide with the release of Die Another Day.
