According to a tweet from Roger Moore’s official twitter account (@sirrogermoore) it seems that Christopher Wood, script author of The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker, as well as author of the novelisations to these two, has died, aged 79. While the exact amount and nature of his influence on the scripts of these productions starring Roger Moore remain a topic of debate for fans and cineastes for years, there can be little doubt that his film novelisations still remain favourites with many fans of the literary James Bond; a remarkable achievement in its own right.
Christopher Wood was a prolific writer, both under his real name and under a number of pseudonyms, and he also worked on the scripts for a number of adaptations of his ‘Confessions’ series. Another noteworthy work of his is the script for the 1985 Hollywood production Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins.
Team and members of CommanderBond.net hereby wish to express our sincere condolences to Mr Wood’s family and friends.
