Leonardo Dicaprio as Ian Fleming

Friday, May 16th, 2008

Leonard Dicaprio’s production company Appian Way is set to produce Fleming, a biopic of James Bond creator, Ian Fleming.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company Appian Way will produce Fleming, a biopic of James Bond creator Ian Fleming, along with Andrew Lazar (Confessions of a Dangerous Mind). The Titanic star may also portray the late author.

“It’s going to be very different from the Bond films,” Lazar informed The Los Angeles Times. “There are a lot of different ways to crack biopics, but we’re not trying to emulate a Bond movie … The idea that this guy’s life informed the James Bond character is pretty fascinating.”

The paper added, “During the writers’ strike, DiCaprio showed interest in Fleming and his world, but he’s looking to take the script in a different direction with a new writer.”

British screenwriter Damian Stevenson penned the original script, which Warner Bros. bought in 2005. Variety reported at the time that “Fleming tells the story of how the author’s own experiences with womanizing and spying shaped his signature secret agent creation. Born into a privileged English family, Fleming began as a comparative underachiever until a stint as a journalist covering the Soviet Union led him to begin spying on that country for the Foreign Office. Fleming was the mastermind of numerous clever spying schemes, some deemed too outlandish to use. He dreamed of becoming a daring secret agent and adapted his own womanizing feats and the stories he heard to craft the Bond novels. He unveiled 007 in Casino Royale in 1953.”

The Secrets of Quantum Solace

Friday, April 4th, 2008

We’ve got the secrets of Quantum Solace right here. Beware! There are more than a few spoilers!

IGN Movies was among the select international media outlets invited last week to visit the Chilean set of the forthcoming James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace. The Marc Forster-directed film finds 007 (once again played by Daniel Craig) on a quest to uncover the shadowy terrorist organization behind the events depicted in 2006’s Casino Royale, the long-running franchise’s most successful entry.

Filming took place at the Residencia of the Paranal Observatory located in the arid, Martian-like Atacama desert, a two-hour bus ride from the coastal city of Antofagasta. At over 8000 feet above sea level, the air is thin at the Residencia and the sky is so clear that the moon is already visible at 11 a.m. The sun is hotter than it feels there; one could suffer a nasty sunburn in no time, even though the temperature feels like a deceptively mild California climate. For full coverage of our set visit, check out our fellow Fox Interactive Media site Rotten Tomatoes. The following report will provide you with a wealth of juicy details about Quantum of Solace that we learned while in Chile, so be advised that there’s more than a quantum of SPOILERS ahead.

Quantum of Solace finds Bond on the trail of businessman Dominic Greene (Mathieu Amalric), a key member of the shadowy organization that 007 has been investigating. Producer Michael G. Wilson revealed to us that this shadowy network is called Quantum; Greene even sports a silver “Q” lapel pin. To the public, Greene is an eco-friendly tycoon, the head of the Greene Planet corporation who’s out to help save the world. But this public persona conceals a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Although the filmmakers were quick to point out that Quantum of Solace is not a political film but pure Bondian escapist entertainment, the villain’s scheme revolves around several timely ideas, such as the issue of regime change.
