James McAvoy James Bond
There’s to be a film about Ian Fleming and word is, James McAvoy will play him. Excellent. Love. Put him in a suit, let him speak freely, drink freely, and smoke freely. It’s a terrible thing to say but that image sexes me up every time. However it’s also true to life – Fleming died of a heart attack prematurely because of his excessive lifestyle. Wonder who’ll play his wife. Wonder who’ll play Noel Coward. Sigh. I really really love it when writers are friends. Like Truman Capote and Harper Lee. Or when writers are enemies. Like Truman Capote and Gore Vidal.
Anyway, James will apparently start shooting the Fleming feature next year. He’s been largely out of the limelight in 2009, busy working on Robert Redford’s The Conspirator in Savannah, Georgia through the fall. James is the lead actor opposite Robin Wright Penn, also costarring Evan Rachel Wood, Kevin Kline, and Tom Wilkinson. Click here to see images from the film.
