Filmmaker Duncan Jones has been forced to drop out of “Fleming,” the biopic about James Bond creator Ian Fleming he was previously attached to.
Jones was keen to direct, but scheduling has become an issue due to Jones’ commit to Legendary’s “Warcraft” film for the next two years.
Producers are unwilling to wait and so are currently searching for a new director who can begin casting by next year.
Based on Andrew Lycett’s biography, “Fleming” explores the author’s life and his work during the Second World War which helped informed the James Bond novels he wrote.
Oliver Simon, Daniel Baur, Kevin Frakes, Stuart Fenegan, Jim Young and Robert Laycock are producing.
