Bond’s initial genesis was as a post-war distraction for a rudderless writer looking to transplant his war-wise world into spiky pulp-fiction.
The 'Tenet' director said he has always been inspired by seeing the Roger Moore adventure on the big screen as a child.
Chris Pine is lining up to be the new Simon Templar in the rebooted movie version of The Saint, according to reports.
He might have looked pretty spruce in those tight trunks back in Casino Royale, but a study has decreed that Daniel Craig is, in fact, the least attractive James Bond.

Pinewood Studios dedicated one of its sound stages to the late Roger Moore in an emotional, star-studded ceremony yesterday.
Today marks a special day of tribute to the late, great Roger Moore, with the one-night-only re-release of ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’ and ‘For Your Eyes Only’ to cinemas. The beloved actor took the character of James Bond 007 to new heights throughout his thirteen-year, seven-film run in the role. A huge part of that was Moore’s more overtly comedic take on the material, with his frequently arched eyebrow, and his tremendous knack for one-liners.Going movie by movie, here are our personal favourite Bond one-liners, as impeccably delivered by the sadly missed screen star.Read More:Thunderball actress Molly Peters diesHeart-warming Roger Moore anecdotePierce Brosnan pens emotional Moore tribute
Roger Moore addressed his legacy and paid tribute to Richard Kiel when we interviewed him back in 2014.
Roger Moore is celebrating his 89th birthday today. By way of celebration here are some of his finest words of infinite wisdom from the celebrated raconteur. – Gwyneth Paltrow’s dad told her fame was turning her into an ‘a**hole’ – Hanks attacks Donald Trump over ‘locker room’ comments – Decoding the new Rogue One poster “I enjoy being a highly overpaid actor.” “I speak relatively little, except when I’m at home and I’m asking for things.” “My acting range has always been something between the two extremes of ‘raises left eyebrow’ and ‘raises right eyebrow. ...
It seems the next generation of the Moore family has continued to keep the British end up, so to speak. The Daily Mail shared an image of Geoffrey Moore, 50-year old son of the third 007 actor Roger, dressed as his father for a party in Mayfair this week. Geoffrey Moore was 7 years old when his father inherited the mantle of 007 with 1973’s ‘Live and Let Die,’ going on to be the most prolific Bond actor with seven films in the role before retiring in 1985 (by which time, most would agree the then 57-year old actor was far too old for the part).
Among her many pop culture achievements, supermodel, singer, and actress Grace Jones played one of the most memorable Bond girls ever in 1985’s A View to a Kill. As alluring henchwoman May Day, Jones romanced Roger Moore’s 007 — in between trying to kill him of course. In her new book — cheekily titled I’ll Never Write My Memoirs — the 67-year-old Jones reveals some tantalizing tidbits about her brief, but indelible time as one of James Bond’s main squeezes. 1. Her Bond movie debut was actually supposed to be in 1983’s Octopussy.
James Bond is a master spy, a solid hand-to-hand combatant, and a dapper dresser. But his most impressive skill must just be wordplay. The MI6 secret agent has been specializing in corny innuendo for more than 50 years, quipping his way into the hearts and beds of women around the world. Yahoo Superfan collected some of 007’s best double entendres, ranging from Sean Connery’s modest quips to Pierce Bronsnan’s blunt forehead-slappers (see: “I thought Christmas only came once a year” — as spoken to a lover named Christmas Jones).
The latest James Bond movie ‘SPECTRE’ is currently packing them in at cinemas across the UK, auditoriums overflowing with viewers eager to see Daniel Craig reprise the role of the legendary secret agent for the fourth time. Recent months have seen intense speculation as to whether it would prove to be four-and-out for Craig. While it had been widely assumed he would return for at least one more movie, many now-infamous remarks in interviews - most notably the sensational claim that he’d sooner slit his wrists than play Bond again - would clearly infer that Craig has reached the end of his tether as 007.
Roger Moore has said that as far as he’s concerned, James Bond could never be portrayed as a woman or a gay man. The veteran 88-year-old 007 star says that it’s simply not the way that writer Ian Fleming penned the character, and issues of political correctness should not enter into it. “I have heard people talk about how there should be a lady Bond or a gay Bond,” he told the Mail on Sunday.
Daniel Craig has strongly hinted that the upcoming ‘SPECTRE’ may wind up being his final film as James Bond - but is the time right for him to turn in his licence to kill? Asked if he will do another, Craig says, “I don’t know… I really don’t know. Craig’s remarks come not long after ‘SPECTRE’ and ‘Skyfall’ director Sam Mendes - the first filmmaker to direct two consecutive Bond movies in over 25 years - declared that he did not intend to return to the series a third time.
For a generation of Bond fans, Roger Moore will always be ‘their’ 007. It will remain just whimsy, however, with Craig set to play Bond until at least 2020. A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond (Daniel Craig) on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as SPECTRE.
