London, Nov 30 (IANS) Hollywood legend Sir Roger Moore’s memoirs are set to be turned into a biopic with Johnny Depp slated to play the James Bond actor.According to contactmusic.com, two top US production companies are rumoured to be battling for the screen rights of Moore’s autobiography “My Word Is My Bond”, which was released in October.
The book details Moore’s exploits with his co-stars including Elizabeth Taylor and Lana Turner in the 1950s and 1960s.
“The two production companies’ interest in Sir Roger was heightened after they read the tales of his Hollywood exploits. They are keen to centre on that era ahead of his 007 days. They believe filmgoers will lap this one up and it could be a huge hit,” an informed source said.
