Long-Lost Moonraker Script Exposes Different Vision for James Bond

May 4, 2022

This year marks the 60th anniversary of James Bond’s cinematic contributions to the world, and fans may be shocked to learn just what author Ian Fleming had in mind for the martini-loving spy. Thanks to a recent unearthing of a long-lost 150-page Moonraker script written by Ian Fleming, 007 fans can now know how the creator wanted to pitch and have his only screenplay adapted into a feature film. Written in 1956 and shortly after the book was published, it was discovered in England and had two characters conspicuously absent. Moneypenny and “M,” respectively. And can you imagine a world without seeing any of “Q’s” witty inventions?
