Landmark takes 007 to the park

Theme-park-going James Bond fans may have the chance to get themselves shaken, not stirred, alongside the British superspy on the new action ride based on the adventures of secret agent 007.

The new ridefilm, currently titled “License to Thrill,” is said to simulate the exhilarating adventures and stunts of the classic James Bond motion picture series, according to the Landmark Entertainment Group, MGM Consumer Products and Bond-pic producers Danjaq, who are jointly developing and releasing the ridefilm.

Distributed worldwide by Landmark, the ridefilm was made available to theme parks and location-based entertainment centers during the Intl. Assn. of Amusement Parks & Attractions Convention, which ran Nov. 19-22. The new ride, which Landmark will produce in a special five-perforation/70mm format at 30 frames per second, will be compatible with nearly all existing simulator systems. The ridefilm will feature spectacular air, land and sea stunts, and will be made with the contributions of Hollywood stunt and special effects directors.

Linda Berman, exec VP and G.M. of MGM Consumer Products, said, ” ‘License to Thrill’ enables thrill-seekers to jump into the driver’s seat with 007 and experience the exhilarating adventures encountered by the world’s most daring secret agent.”

Gary Goddard, CEO and founder of Landmark, will supervise production of the “License to Thrill” ridefilm.

MGM is set to release the newest Bond film, “Tomorrow Never Dies,” on Dec. 19.
