Duncan Jones Exits Biopic of James Bond Creator Ian Fleming to Direct 'Warcraft'


Duncan Jones


Unwilling to wait until Jones completes his big-budget film 'Warcraft', the producers of 'Fleming' are currently looking for a director who can start casting and producing next year.

Duncan Jones ("Moon") was originally set to direct "Fleming", a biopic of James Bond creator Ian Fleming. However, he has been forced to depart the project as his another film, "Warcraft", is starting its production in January 2014.

The Wrap, which broke the news, reported that Jones was eager to helm "Fleming". However, "Warcraft" will likely keep him busy throughout the year and the biopic producers don't want to wait that long, so they are currently looking for a new director who can get the project off the ground next year.

Based on Andrew Lycett's biography of Fleming, the film is expected to explore the British author's life as a real spy which later influenced his James Bond books. K5 International's Oliver Simon and Daniel Baur are co-producing the movie with PalmStar Media Capital's Kevin Frakes and Liberty Films' Stuart Fenegan as well as Jim Young and Robert Laycock of the Ian Fleming estate.

As for "Warcraft", the big screen adaptation of popular video game "World of Warcraft" is scheduled to be released by Universal on December 18, 2015. The big-budget flick will star Paula Patton, Anson Mount, Paul Dano, Colin Farrell, Travis Fimmel and Anton Yelchin.
