According to today’s News Tank story future Bond continuation author William Boyd went on the record with some very serious – and for lit-Bond fans most encouraging! – comments. Boyd’s Bond will be middle-aged at 45 and moreoriented at the original character, with a less exotic love interest and an emphasis on credibility, depicting Bond as a human being, a troubled and nuanced character. Boyd expressed a preference for the literary version of 007 and assures his book won’t feature the staple diet of the cinema Bond.
