Author William Boyd has accepted an invitation from the Ian Fleming estate to write the next (as yet untitled) James Bond novel. Three of Boyd's books have been adapted into films that have starred 007 actors Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig. Boyd was not giving any details on the project except to say it will be retro-based with the story taking place in 1969.
