Exciting exclusive news released today: HH client DAVID OYELOWO will play James Bond!
DAVID will play Bond, and other characters, in the audiobook version of Trigger Mortis, written by Anthony Horowitz and commissioned by the Ian Fleming estate. Describing himself as “very honoured”, DAVID told UK press: “I am officially the only person on planet Earth who can legitimately say: ‘I am the new James Bond’ – even saying that name is the cinematic equivalent of doing the ‘to be or not to be’ speech”, adding: “I was asked specifically by the Fleming estate, which is really special.”
More than 100 million Bond books have been sold worldwide. Fleming wrote 14 and his estate has since commissioned new adventures from various authors, including Horowitz, who has written more than 40 books and, as a television screenwriter, created the Bafta-winning Foyle’s War. DAVID described his Bond as “a man who is very self-assured” but not perfect.
In a statement, Horowitz said: “What an honour to have an actor as talented as David to read my take on Bond. He has a brilliant voice and talent for bringing out the nuances of dialogue and characters.”
Trigger Mortis takes place two weeks after the events of Goldfinger and will be released on September 8 2015. Make sure you order your copy!
