Horowitz says new 007 title to be revealed Thursday

Anthony Horowitz

Author Anthony Horowitz said on Twitter the title of his second James Bond continuation novel is coming out Thursday morning.

“The Bond title is revealed tomorrow!” Horowitz wrote on a Twitter post made at 5:01 p.m. New York time. “Four of the most important words in my life, at the moment. And there’s another giveaway…”

The giveaway wasn’t clear. In a response to a question on Twitter, he specified the title is coming out in the morning.

In a Feb. 2 post on Twitter, the author teased the title began with the letter f.

“I have to say, I’ve just seen the most brilliant cover for F Whoops!” Horowitz wrote. “Nearly gave away the title of Bond 2.”

Assuming that Horowitz is shooting as straight as James Bond does with his Walther PPK, we’ll know more soon.

Here’s the tweet from today:

Horowitz’s first 007 effort, Trigger Mortis, is considered by many James Bond literary fans to be the best continuation novel since Ian Fleming Publications resumed “adult Bond” novels in 2008. Horowitz is the first author IFP, run by Ian Fleming heirs, has asked back during that period.

A promo on social media were released today emphasizing how Mission: Impossible-Fallout star Tom Cruise really flew a helicopter for a sequence in the movie.

According to the promo, Cruise, 55, was certified to fly a helicopter.

“Flying a helicopter takes a lot of skill,” says aerial coordinator Marc Wolff, a veteran of previous M:I films as well as the 007 film series. “To put someone like Tom in a situation like this is almost impossible to imagine.”

The video also shows how cameras were set up to show Cruise was in the helicopter alone.

The video is below. The movie is scheduled for release in late July.
