Film bosses have turned down the chance to adapt the latest James Bond book for the big screen - because its plot is too old-fashioned.
Devil May Care was written by British novelist Sebastian Faulks to commemorate Bond creator Ian Fleming's centenary this year.
Faulks confirmed in May that Eon Productions were considering turning the book into a movie - but the plans have since been shelved.
Bond producer Barbara Broccoli says, "Devil May Care is a period book which is set in the 1960s and it really wouldn't fit as one of the films that Eon has been producing recently."
Excuse me, but several Bond movies made after Ian Fleming's death were adapted on material set and published in the 1950s and early 60s—For Your Eyes Only, Octopussy, A View to a Kill, The Living Daylights, Licence to Kill, Casino Royale.
