'THE MAN WHO WOULDN'T DIE,' ROGER MOORE'S FIRST TELEVISION MOVIE IN
 16 YEARS, BEGINS PRODUCTION TODAY FOR UNIVERSAL TELEVISION, ABC
 UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- "The Man Who Wouldn't Die," starring internationally popular film and television star Roger Moore in his first movie for television in 16 years, begins production today in Vancouver, British Columbia for Universal Television and ABC. Critically acclaimed stage and screen star Malcolm McDowell and Nancy Allen co-star.
 Moore plays Thomas Grace, a British ex-novelist who wrote a series of crime stories featurn?g a villain patterned after real-life criminal Bernard Drake (McDowell). Now living in America, Grace works as a hack reporter for a city newspaper. After reading one of Grace's books, Jesse Gallardo (Allen), a waitress with psychic abilities, predicts several murders -- and Grace is one of the victims. Her visions identify the enemy as Drake who is following the plot of Grace's book, leaving clues and challenging Grace to catch him.
 Last seen on television in the 1976 movie for television "Sherlock Holmes in New York," Moore is best known to movie audiences as James Bond in seven 007 films, including "Live and Let Die," "The Man With the Golden Gun," "The Spy Who Loved Me," "For Your Eyes Only," "Moonraker," "Octopussy" and "A View To A Kill." Television viewers remember Moore as "The Saint" in the long-running series produced in England and first seen in syndication in the United States in the early 60s and, with all new episodes, on NBC from 1967-69.
 McDowell's performance as Alex in Stanley Kubrick's classic film "A Clockwork Orange," won him international recognition. He followed with leading roles in Lindsey Anderson's "O Lucky Man!" and "Time After Time" co-starring Mary Steenburgen.
 Allen starred in "Robocop" and "Robocop II" as the cyborg's loyal human partner. After appearing as the vicious teen-queen in Brian De Palma's "Carrie," she starred in the De Palma films "Blow-Out" and "Dressed To Kill." Her other credits include "The Last Detail," "Strange Invaders" and the upcoming "Robocop III."
 "The Man Who Wouldn't Die" is produced by Universal Productions Canada and distributed by Universal Television. Roger Moore, Alan Barnette and Mark Gordon serve as executive producers and Alex Beaton is producer. Bill Condon directs from a script by David Amann.
