Double-Oh-Seven Note: After a three-picture hiatus from the role he made legend, Sean Connery will rebuckle his swash as secret agent James Bond in "Never Say Never Again." Irvin Kershner, director of "The Empire Strikes Back," is slated to direct when the superspy flick begins on-location shooting this month in Nassau and the south of France (007 always had expensive taste). While we're awaiting Connery's comeback, Roger Moore's next incarnation as 007, called "Octopussy," is due on the screen by the summer of '83 . . .
* The Curtain Calls Note: Broadway success has been the stepping stone to solo recording careers for several black singers, including Melba Moore, Stephanie Mills and most recently, Jennifer Holliday. Soul superstars Patti Labelle and Rev. Al Green are turning that trend around by starring in a new adaptation of Vinette Carroll's "Your Arms Too Short To Box With God," opening at the Alvin Theater this week. Carroll has rewritten the gospel musical and expanded Green's role to, appropriately, a minister . . .
* The Force Is With Mozart Note: Mark Hamill, best known as Luke Skywalker from the "Star Wars" movies, will be doing some time-traveling soon. He's been tapped for the role of Mozart in the national touring company of "Amadeus." Producers are still searching for a slightly sinister Salieri. (Perhaps Darth Vader?)
