Toby Stephen will voice James Bond, while Ian McKellen is going to play Goldfinger in the radio adaptation which is set for April release.
Actress Rosamund Pike is heading back to the "Bond" franchise for a new U.K. radio adaptation. The British beauty starred as a double agent opposite Pierce Brosnan in his last outing as 007, "Die Another Day" in 2002.
And Pike has signed up to play Honor Blackman's iconic character Pussy Galore in an audio version of "Goldfinger" for British station BBC Radio 4. A source tells the U.K.'s Daily Express, "The radio dramatization will be more faithful to Fleming's original 1959 novel than the film version was."
Toby Stephens, who starred in "Die Another Day" as supervillain Gustav Graves, will voice Bond, while Sir Ian McKellen will play Goldfinger in the production, which is set to be broadcast in Britain on April 3 this year.
