Playboy, Gambler, Spy – Dominic Cooper Is James Bond Creator Ian Fleming, Trailer And Images

fleming-gallery-002 While Duncan Jones balances development of his own Ian Fleming biopic with a big World of Warcraft workload – and no, that’s not a euphemism for staying up all night playing games – Sky have pressed ahead with their own drama about the creator of James Bond.

Fleming is to be a four-part drama with Dominic Cooper in the lead role. As you’ll see from these images, Lara Pulver is also in, playing Ann O’Neill. She’s described in Fleming’s official bio as “the love of his life.”

And as you’ll also see, if you check out the trailer, there’s at least a few seconds where he holds a gun. Probably. Unless this was just for this promo.

He wouldn’t have looked like Dominic Cooper while he was doing it, though – more like Geoffrey Rush, really. Still, there’s fun to be had conflating some of Fleming’s real life with his fantasy creation and it looks Sky are after that.

Fleming was directed by Spike Island‘s Mat Whitecross. There’s no word yet on when it will air but it’s going to be on Sky Atlantic.
