More Moore for Michael O'Mara
Sir Roger Moore will provide a guide to the
cars, gadgets and girls of the James Bond movies to help celebrate the spy
series' 50th anniversary on the big screen.
Louise Dixon, Michael O'Mara senior editorial director, bought world
rights to Bond on Bond from Lesley Pollinger at Pollinger Ltd. The
book will be published in September 2012, coinciding with 50 years of the
Bond film franchise and the release of a new movie featuring the suave
Michael O'Mara said: "Once you have worked with Roger you find yourself
saying, like Oliver Twist: ‘Moore please!'"
The book will feature Moore's thoughts on the flashy gadgets, fast cars
and evil villains that made the Bond series so iconic. It will also serve
as a part memoir as Moore reminisces about his own time as Bond. He
replaced Sean Connery as James Bond in seven films, beginning with Live
And Let Die, released in 1973.
Dixon said: "We are truly delighted to have secured this fabulous book
filled with fantastic colour photographs and memories from Sir Roger: the
ultimate Bond book from the ultimate Bond himself!"
In 2008, Michael O'Mara
published My Word Is My Bond, Moore's autobiography. It has sold
106,219 copies in all editions, for £1,121,609.64, according to Nielsen
Moore commented: "I'm greatly looking forward to delving into my memory
box again and rummaging through the photo albums to admire my great
physique, dashing good looks and full set of teeth."
