Variety reports that Warner Brothers is making another Bond movie…only this one will be about 007 creator Ian Fleming.
"Fleming," meanwhile, tells the story of how the author’s own experiences
with womanizing and spying shaped his signature secret agent creation.
Born into a privileged English family, Fleming began as a comparative
underachiever until a stint as a journalist covering the Soviet Union led him to
begin spying on that country for the Foreign Office. Fleming was the mastermind
of numerous clever spying schemes, some deemed too outlandish to use. He dreamed
of becoming a daring secret agent and adapted his own womanizing feats and the
stories he heard to craft the Bond novels.

This sounds fun.
This is not the first time that this has been done. I am not sure who produced it but it aired on PBS a few years ago and was excellent. A lot of the gimicks that are used in the Bond movies,ie the hat tossing onto the hat rack in Moneypennys office (early Bond), and ‘Q’, to name just two were explained.
Sean Connery’s son, Jason, played Fleming in “The Secret Life of Ian Fleming.”
