James McAvoy to Star as Ian Fleming? 


Pajiba.com revealed that Palmstar Entertainment and Animus Films are developing a biopic based on the life of Ian Fleming. Currently titled "Ian Fleming," the movie will be about the man who created James Bond.

Based on the book "Ian Fleming: The Man Behind James Bond" by Andrew Lycett, the script by Mark Brown will focus on how Fleming got inspired to write the Secret Agent 007 character.

The best part? James McAvoy is supposed to be attached in the lead role as Fleming. This is a great casting choice for McAvoy can do edgy action ("Wanted") and give his character its much needed heart ("Atonement").

The film is an independent feature, and right now, no distributor is attached yet. The project is currently searching for a director.
