Though the next James Bond film, Skyfall, is due later this year, another kind of Bond films is already in the works. It was announced that Duncan Jones (Moon) has signed on to direct “the action-packed” story of James Bond creator Ian Fleming. Jones had this to say about the gig:
“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 witnesses 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?”
The author masterminded real-life secret operations before he created the James Bond book series, so there’s obviously quite a lot to draw from. Hit the jump for more details.
