The teaser for the BBC/Sky mini-series Fleming arrives and feels very 007
The BBC and Sky America mini-series FLEMING: THE MAN WHO WOULD BE BOND has gotten a brief teaser showing Dominic Cooper in character as the James Bond creator. The short clip shows Cooper walking towards the camera shrouded in shadow and sporting a familiar looking gun.
There have been countless books, articles, and movies made correlating Ian Fleming's real life with that of his fictional spy creation. None have been particularly good, but this project looks to at least be somewhat higher quality. From the image above you can tell that even if not 100% factual, FLEMING will certainly be as close to a Bond movie as possible.
FLEMING also stars Annabelle Wallis, Lara Pulver, Samuel West, Lelsley Manville, Rupert Evans and Anna Chancellor and will not be airing until Winter 2014 in the UK. No word if it will air concurrently on BBC America or after a slight delay, but it will appear next year.
