James McAvoy Kills Speculation On Playing Ian Fleming

Last week we reported that James McAvoy was being mentioned as a likely candidate for the role of James Bond creator and author Ian Fleming . Apparently and according to the man himself James McAvoy, star of  “Wanted” and “Atonement”, James was sent the script, like ages ago and no one contacted him about it after that.

James in his own words:

“It’s rumor. Again, it’s all a rumor. I’ve read the script — I read it a long time ago, though, and I never even spoke to the producers. I don’t know where it’s come from.”

He added that it’s strange to hear reports about yourself that aren’t true. “Quite often you’re just hearing things that aren’t true. As much as they’re not bad things, there’s a part of you that goes, ‘But it’s not true!’ It’s like you’re saying that I like coffee instead of tea. It’s not that big of a deal — it’s just not true!”

Well there you have it. Another casting rumour squashed. Thanks to the Playlist for the heads up.
