Will James McAvoy Be Bond, James Bond?

2 Comments

Another biopic is on the way, this time featuring the life and good times of James Bond writer Ian Fleming. The scuttlebutt is that Scotsman James McAvoy (Wanted) a fine lad, is attached to play the man behind 007 in a film strangely titled “Ian Fleming”.

Ian Fleming led an interesting life to say the least. Born a rich kid, Ian went on to leave the wicked sounding Black Watch (3rd Battalion, Royal Regiment of Scotland) to join Royal Navy Intelligence where he confounded the Nazi menace at every turn including leading Operation Goldeneye (the protection of Gibraltar). He basically died young at 56 after a life of wine, women,song and secret agent style danger. Oh yes and he also was a writer of some note. The movie will be based on the book, Ian Fleming: The Man Behind James Bond written by Andrew Lycett. Could be a great movie. I think James is probably a great choice. Thanks Pajiba for the scoop.

Endy is a slightly mangy and gristly citizen of the Great White North. He loves movies big time. How big? In Canada, back in the old days in the ice city where he lived, there would just be one theatre that would be allowed to show any given movie. Some of these theatres were not the giganto-plex or mall theatres that we know and love today. No no, these were the kind of theatres where you had to wait Outside to see a movie. When a big moving picture would open in these single theatres, beaver pelt sporting fellas like Endy would have to wait outside in line for hours while fighting off the human hankering giant Polar Bear or packs of Endy knawing timber wolves. Endy is a dedicated movie watcher. Otherwise, Endy loves him a good Moose jerky, football teams with manly names like the Steelers or Vikings and the thawing embrace of his fine German woman. All these things are good. But you know what is best.
