Washington, Aug 21 (ANI): Movie bosses have declined the chance to adapt the latest James Bond book for the big screen, because its plot is too old-fashioned.

In a bid to commemorate Bond creator Ian Fleming’’s centenary this year, British novelist Sebastian Faulks had written Devil May Care.

Faulks confirmed in May (08) that Eon Productions were considering turning the book into a movie, but the plans have since been shelved.

“Devil May care is a period book which is set in the 1960s and it really wouldn”t fit as one of the films that Eon has been producing recently, Contactmusic quoted Bond producer Barbara Broccoli, as saying. (ANI)
