Pierce Brosnan is 007
Electronic Arts announced today that Pierce Brosnan will be representing the upcoming videogame James Bond 007: Nightfire. The PS2 title will be released in accordance with the movie starring Brosnan "Die Another Day". The game will feature more than 10 stunning exotic locations nationwide and will include some areas of outer space. An all-star cast of villains and allies will also be highlighted, as Nightfire's storyline has been created exclusively for this project.
"Pierce Brosnan and Bond have created an unbeatable combination for the franchise over the past few years, so we're excited to have Pierce aboard to help deliver to fans the ultimate Bond experience," says Chip Lange, VP of Electronic Arts marketing. "I am confident that together, Pierce Brosnan, EA and NightFire will make for the most dynamic and appealing Bond game yet."
Neil Haldar, Vice President of Production and Business Development for MGM Interactive, observes, "We welcome this fantastic opportunity to collaborate with Brosnan, who so masterfully personifies James Bond, and to re-team with a great partner like Electronic Arts on Nightfire to deliver the finest integration of creativity and technology to date."
