Fleming Flick in the Works

Reuters has a piece about Warner Brothers making a deal to back a film based on the life of Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond. The flick is to be produced by Andrew Lazar ("Death to Smoochy," "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind." ) The writer, Damian Stevenson, seems to have no credits to date. (However, Variety has a piece about a Damian Stevenson, but it's not clear that it's the same guy.)

The story has a lot of potential, Fleming was himself a member of British Naval Intelligence during World War II, after being a reporter for Reuters covering Russia. Little bit of trivia, Fleming wrote "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang." Hopefully, they have dedicated a large segment of their film to explore that aspect of Fleming's life. --Terrence Ryan
