OHMSS the next Bond film to appear in 007 Legends

11:15 AM on 06.29.2012 // Matthew Razak

Today Activision announced the next film in 007 Legends that players will take on Bond's role in is On Her Majesty's Secret Service. They've sent along some screens and concept art to show off their take on the Bond film, which starred one-time Bond George Lazenby. If you've seen the film, you'll probably recognize Blofeld's mountaintop villa in the screenshots, but the concept art shows off a bit more liberal take on the evil-doers harem, with some engine rooms that weren't in the film. More importantly, they're tackling the legendary ski chase sequence from the film, which could be amazingly fun to play.

OHMSS easily contends to be one of my favorite Bond films despite the fact that it gets routinely hated on by people who assume Lazenby was awful without even seeing the film. His Bond was actually much more akin to early Connery and Craig Bonds, with a darker, more serious edge that would have sent the franchise in a far different direction if he had chosen to carry on with the character. The film is also pretty much the polar opposite of Moonraker in terms of Bond movies, so I think as long as its done well, it's a good choice to counter balance the over-the-top laser beams of that film.

With Moonraker and OHMSS announced this makes me 1-1 in my guessing game. Since they're clearly not functioning under my "Blofeld Theory" I'm guessing I'll be wrong about a few others as well.
