Roger Moore is returning to the big screen in a movie about the making of John Wayne’s classic “The Quiet Man”. The Bond legend hasn’t appeared in a film since 2002’s “Boat Trip”, choosing instead to lend his famous voice to animated movies in recent years.
But Moore will take on double duties in the new project, acting as star and executive producer for the film, which will be set in 1950s Ireland, where Wayne and Maureen O’Hara shot their scenes for the popular 1952 movie.
The 82-year-old British actor tells Britain’s Daily Express, ” ‘The Quiet Man’ is one of my all-time favorite films. The opportunity to revisit the time when Hollywood arrived in Ireland to shoot it was simply too delicious to miss.”
