JAMES MCAVOY AS IAN FLEMING IN THE NEW BIOPIC

As "Pajiba" reports a biopic based on the life of Ian Fleming, is currently under development. "Ian Fleming" will be about the man behind James Bond, specifically focused on the years that gave him inspiration for the Bond character. Before creating Bond, Fleming lived under the shadow of his father, who was a member of Parliament, and his brother, who was a travel writer. Without his own identity Fleming was just a vain playboy, until his experiences in World War 2 as a member of British Navy changed his life giving him inspiration for James Bond.
The movie is going to be based on the book "Ian Fleming: The Man Behind James Bond" by Andrew Lycett, and will have a budget of about $40 million. One of the most talented young actors James McAvoy ("Narnia", "Atonement", "Wanted"), who was apparently in competition to play 007 himself before it became James Craig Blond, will take the lead role.

  1. I LOVE James McAvoy. He is such a talented actor. He deserves so much more credit than he gets. Hopefully this goes some way towards rectifying that situation...

  3. Just going by the look, Ian Fleming could have played Bond himself. James McAvoy is a good actor, but I don't see either how he fits the bill as Ian Fleming.

  4. I think that McAvoy fits this role just by being British, dashing, charming and an elegant action star.

  6. I'm really not interested in seeing a film about Ian Fleming. But let hope they prove me wrong, and make an interesting movie. :)
