Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Conspiracy being an exception to the rule, high-profile movie-to-game tie-ins have increasingly banked Hollywood talent. Activision Blizzard's upcoming James Bond: Quantum of Solace will continue to follow that trend. The publisher said today that it has secured the voices and likenesses of many of the top names featured in Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale for its upcoming shooter.
As could be surmised by previously released screenshots, leading man Daniel Craig (Layer Cake, A Kid in King Arthur's Court) will reprise his role as the suave secret agent James Bond in the game, and he will be joined by the latest Bond girl, Olga Kurylenko (Hitman). Judi Dench (Chocolat, The Chronicles of Riddick), who portrays hard-edged Bond boss M in the films, will also appear in the game, as will 007's newest nemesis Dominic Greene, played by Mathieu Amalric (Munich).
Given that the Bond game spans both Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale, a few familiar faces from the first film will also make an appearance. Eva Green (Kingdom of Heaven, The Golden Compass), aka femme fatal Vesper Lynd, will join Casino Royale antagonist Mads Mikkelsen (King Arthur) as Le Chiffre in lending their voices and likenesses to the game.
James Bond: Quantum of Solace for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 2, Wii, Nintendo DS, and PC will accompany the silver-screen premiere during the week of November 4. Of note, Treyarch, which is developing the 360 and PS3 editions of the game, has implemented the Call of Duty 4 game engine to power Quantum of Solace.
