Moore makes movie return in Quiet Man story

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.

He tells Britain’s Daily Express, “The Quiet Man is one of my all-time favourite films. The opportunity to revisit the time when Hollywood arrived in Ireland to shoot it was simply too delicious to miss.”
