Sean Connery may come out of retirement to narrate a movie about a war veteran’s battle against military bosses.

Sean Connery may come out of retirement to narrate a movie about a war veteran’s battle against military bosses.

The veteran in question, Ken McGinley, won a landmark case when he was given the right to sue the British Ministry of Defence on behalf of thousands of servicemen who were exposed to nuclear testing on Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean.

The veteran ‘James Bond’ actor – whose last part was voicing a character in 2006 film ‘Sir Billi the Vet’ – even wrote a letter highlighting his interest in bringing the story to the big screen.

He wrote: “It is a shocking history of events. I have already made my opinion regarding the possibility of filming the book written by Mr. McGinley.

“I am more than interested to see the end result and would be prepared to do the narration.”
