MOON Director Duncan Jones Exits Ian Fleming Biopic

     November 24, 2013


Last year it was announced that Moon director Duncan Jones was set to direct a biopic of James Bond creator Ian Fleming, with production slated to begin in late 2012.  Obviously that never occurred, and in the meantime Jones replaced Sam Raimi as the director of Legendary’s large scale video game adaptation Warcraft.  Word on the Fleming biopic has been mum, and now The Wrap officially reports that Jones has unfortunately exited the promising project.  Filming on Warcraft begins in January, and though Jones was still keen on getting to the Fleming biopic sooner or later, apparently the producers were unwilling to wait two years until Jones completes Warcraft and is able to move on to another film.

The search is now on for a replacement director on Fleming who can begin casting early next year for a hoped-for 2014 production start-date.  The author worked in the espionage world during WWII before creating the famous spy character, so his life story is certainly one that lends itself easily to feature film adaptation.
