James Bond is headed to the small screen…kind of.  Variety reports that Dominic Cooper (Captain America) is in talks to play James Bond creator/author Ian Fleming in a four-part biopic miniseries for Sky Atlantic directed by Mat Whitecross (The Road to Guantanamo).  Written by John Brownlow and Don Macpherson, the project is tentatively titled Fleming and will take place during WWII, when Fleming worked for British Naval intelligence against the Nazis.  This was an influential time for Fleming, as it was his experiences during the war that led to the creation of James Bond and influenced the storylines of a number of books.

This isn’t the only Fleming biopic in the works, as Moon helmer Duncan Jones is also developing a film based on Fleming’s time with British Intelligence.  Jones’ project is currently the only film to be given the full support of The Ian Fleming Estate.  Cooper most recently entered talks to join Aaron Paul in the video game adaptation Need for Speed and will next be seen opposite Colin Farrell in the thriller Dead Man Down this coming March.
