I'm skeptical of this, judging from what's in the trailer and the nature of the book. Also, some of the early Bonds are fairly faithful to the source material. OHMSS comes to mind. Goldfinger, too, though they changed the villain's scheme (for the better). Seems like FRWL was a pretty close adaption, but it's been a long time since I read the book.
