Dominc Cooper in talks to play Ian Fleming?
Less than a fortnight since Skyfall hit cinemas, James Bond's making movie headlines again but this time it’s all about the delightful (and delicious) Dominic Cooper.
The Sun reports that the English actor is apparently in talks to star as 007’s creator, Ian Fleming in an upcoming biopic.
We first heard news of the film back in May but since Skyfall's massive success it’s rumoured the production, helmed by Moon director Duncan Jones, is being fast-tracked.
"Skyfall has got punters really excited about Bond, even more than usual, so it just makes sense to bring forward the production of this biopic" a source said.
The film will recount Fleming's real life experiences travelling the globe and planning top secret operations, revealing the real-life inspiration for the man with a licence to kill.
Jones previously spoke about the project and 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 witnessed 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?"
