Well, isn’t this exciting news?

While we all anxiously await his next release, a sci-fi action film entitled MUTE, director Duncan Jones (MOON, SOURCE CODE) isn’t sitting on his laurels and has already found himself a brand new project.

According to a fan site dedicated to the director, Man Made Movies (a play on his @ManMadeMoon Twitter handle), Jones will be helming a biopic based on the life of Ian Fleming.

Best known as the man behind the Bond franchise, the film is being described as a “period action film,” and will be based on the Andrew Lycett biography, Ian Fleming: The Man Behind James Bond.

While I’m not familiar with the life of Fleming, I do like the idea of Jones taking on a project of this nature and I think it will be a nice change of pace for the director. I’m not so sure that this will be released anything soon, though with casting currently underway it may be sooner than any of us could expect.
