Former 007 actor Sir Roger Moore has revealed that movie chiefs are trying to line him up alongside 84-year-old Sir Sean Connery, George Lazenby, 75, Timothy Dalton, 71 and 62-year-old Pierce Brosnan.

Moore insists he is keen to sign up, but Connery is proving more difficult to get on board.

He tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "I'd be up for (the movie). But Sean balked at the idea as I don't think he wants to be associated with Bond any more. But I'd need about 10 stunt doubles."

The proposed movie is believed to boast a similar format to action film franchise The Expendables, which has featured a host of veteran Hollywood hardmen including Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
