Following the phenomenal success of the most recent James Bond movie installment – November’s “Skyfall” – the famous spy will be appearing in an all-new print adventure.

Writer William Boyd will be penning a new Bond novel, which is scheduled to come out this September in the UK (published by Jonathan Cape) and early October in the US and Canada (released by HarperCollins). Boyd was shortlisted for the Booker Prize for his 1982 novel “An Ice-Cream War.”

According to a statement from the estate of original Bond author Ian Fleming, the book will be “a return to the classic Bond era,” with a 45-year-old Bond living in 1969.

Any other information on a title or plot details is being kept secret for now.

Taking on a Bond novel is a “fantastic, exciting challenge,” Boyd told Reuters.
