London, Dec 1 (ANI): Sir Roger Moore’’s memoirs are set to be turned into a Hollywood biopic with Johnny Depp slated to play the James Bond actor.

Two top US production companies are rumoured to be battling for the screen rights of Moore’’s autobiography My Word Is My Bond.

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, the Daily Express quoted a source, as saying.

They are keen to centre on that era ahead of his 007 days. They believe filmgoers will lap this one up, the source added. (ANI)
