A bit of news on the forthcoming James Bond video game from Activision has emerged online today at Digital Spy.
According to the site, British EastEnders actor Adam Croasdell has taken on the role of James Bond for the latest 007 game.
The 29-year old soap star, who has featured on several UK television shows, confirmed the news in an interview with BBC Asian Network. He states: ‘Oddly enough I have just played James Bond in the new James Bond video game—how weird is that? I don’t know what the future holds, but I’m always into varying up what comes my way, trying new things.’
He continued: ‘I think video games and the making of that type of technology, being in a funny one-piece suit and being shot with 60 cameras, I think that’s sort of the future.’
‘Andy Serkis did it in The Hobbit, and there’s a new film Avatar which is James Cameron—it’s all that sort of motion capture. I think it’s the future, so I was fascinated to see how that would happen.’
‘I think in our lifetime it is going to swing very much into the realms of computerised environments and who knows, maybe there will be more of that.’
At this point, very little has been released regarding Activision’s plans for 007 next year. As CommanderBond.net readers will recall, their announced ‘racing-oriented’ Bond game was pushed back from it’s original September 2009 release date.
