‘All options are open’ for the future of the literary James Bond.

That’s the quote Simon Trewin, literary agent for Ian Fleming Publications Ltd., gave to [[1]] regarding a follow-up to last year’s centenary novel, Devil May Care, by Sebastian Faulks.

Trewin stated that no new author had been signed to write a new novel and that there were ‘no firm plans at the moment’.

Faulks also confirmed that Devil May Care would be his sole contribution to the literary 007 canon, despite being given the offer to pen another. ‘My contract did offer me a second go, but definitely not,’ he said. ‘“Once funny, twice silly, three times a slap”, as the nanny saying goes. But I think it would be a good gig for someone to do.’
