As you patiently wait for “Bond 24,” which is now slated for a fall 2015 release, you still need your fill of gadgets and well dressed men bedding beautiful women while saving the world. And “Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond” may be the fix you’re looking for. The mini-series biopic hits the air next month and a new trailer is here to show off what essentially looks like a Bond movie.
Dominic Cooper stars as 007 creator Ian Fleming, in the Mat Whitecross (“Sex And Drugs And Rock And Roll”) directed series about the author’s real life exploits as part of the British Naval Intelligence which later went on to inspire the adventures of James Bond. And it seems Fleming was something of a smooth operator himself, with one-liners at the ready and life saving devices in his pocket.
“Fleming” airs on BBC America starting January 29th at 10 PM. Watch below.
