IFP slam rumours of a Young Bond movie, and deny author approaches for 2008 adult 007 novel

14-Sep-2005 • Young Bond

Ian Fleming Publications have slammed rumours of a Young James Bond movie based on the first novel by Charlie Higson - SilverFin.

The latest statement from IFP, written from the perspective of Miss Moneypenny to seemingly insult the intelligence of all readers, said: "a number of unsubstantiated rumours originating from unofficial intelligence sources regarding IFPL projects so she's taking this opportunity to clarify a few matters for all our agents".

Young Bond film: without meaning to disparage Mr Radcliffe or Mr Bell, IFPL is not currently discussing the film rights in its Young Bond property with anybody. Official news on major Young Bond developments will be announced here or through our sister website www.youngbond.com

New James Bond novel: IFPL is in the early stages of planning its Ian Fleming Centenary activities. We are considering commissioning an author to create a new Bond novel. We have not to date approached anybody in respect of this project.

The denials come off the back of tabliud stories hyping the potential casting for a Young Bond movie, and the quotes from Charlie Higson that he turned down an offer to write the adult James Bond novel planned for 2008.

Thanks to `JP` for the alert.
