Duncan Jones To Direct Action Thriller Based On Ian Fleming's Fascinating Life
Stuart Kemp at the Hollywood Reporter reports that Duncan Jones is set to direct a film about Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond, based on Andrew Lycett's Ian Fleming, The Man Behind James Bond.
Before becoming the best-selling author of the Bond books, Fleming traveled the globe and masterminded real-life top-secret operations, helping supply inspiration for this famous creation, before and during World War II as a naval intelligence officer.
... Jones said: "Fleming lived through one of the most perilous periods in world history, in a position that allowed him a unique vantage point of all the players, all the stakes. He witnesses true heroism first-hand. And he saw the evil men could do. Then, when the war ended, he went off to write fiction. The essential question for me is where did Ian Fleming end and Bond begin?"
