While Daniel Craig is the current 007 in residence at EON Productions — the company responsible for 22 James Bond films, from Dr. No (1962) to Quantum of Solace (2008) — another British actor may be working with "Her Majesty's Secret Service" in the near future.
According to Pajiba, an inside source has revealed that Wanted star James McAvoy is in talks to play Bond's creator,
Ian Fleming, in a biopic from Palmstar Entertainment and Animus Films.
With the working title Ian Fleming, the movie will be based on the book Ian Fleming: The Man Behind James Bond by Andrew Lycett and is expected to focus on the years of Fleming's life that inspired him to create the world's most famous spy. Matt Brown is adapting the book for the screen, but no director has been attached yet.
