Roger Moore Explains Why Steven Spielberg Wasn't Considered To Direct A Bond Movie


In a recent interview with MTV News, James Bond star, Roger Moore who was talking about his book, “One Lucky Bastard,” explains why Steven Spielberg wasn't considered for a James Bond directors role even though he had shown interest.
In the early ’70s, Moore bumped into a young Steven Spielberg at the Plaza Anténé In Paris. 
“We sat, and we talked. He said he would love to direct a Bond,” Moore said. “At this time, all I knew about him was that I had seen ‘Duel,’ which I thought was a superb bit of moviemaking, and he wasn’t that known at that time.” 
Moore passed along the note to producer Cubby Broccoli, who in turn shot Spielberg down. 
“Spielberg wanted a piece, and Cubby didn’t want to give anything away,” Moore said. “He didn’t want to give any more points of Bond away to directors coming in.”
