John Orloff, who wrote A Mighty Heart, the Angelina Jolie vehicle about slain journalist Daniel Pearl, is taking on the author of the James Bond novels as his next subject. Orloff will write the screenplay for Fleming, the biopic about Ian Fleming, the man who created the mythical James Bond character and was once an intelligence officer in the British Navy.
Appian Way, the production company owned and operated by Leonardo DiCaprio, will produce the film. The story will center on critical moments in the life of the author and journalist who created one of the most enduring figures in fiction and film. Fleming wrote over 14 novels featuring the 007 character. He passed away in 1964.
