‘Fleming’ Trailer: Dominic Cooper as the Real-Life James Bond
We’re not exactly certain when the next James Bond film will hit theaters, or who exactly will return for that matter, but why not explore the story of his legendary creator, Sir Ian Fleming! The first teaser trailer for Sky Atlantic’s upcoming miniseries, ‘Fleming,’ has hit the web, starring ‘Captain America‘ player Dominic Cooper in the title role. So are you ready for a look into the real-life James Bond?
Produced by Ecosse Films’s Douglas Rae, the four-part miniseries is set during World War II, wherein British Naval Intelligence hired Fleming for undercover work against the Nazis. Fleming’s experiences with the war ultimately inspired his 007 character, a far cry from Fleming’s own past as an unsuccessful stockbroker, with a failed army career and a wealthy family to live off of.
In addition to Cooper’s role as the title character, ‘Fleming’ features among its cast ‘Sherlock‘ and ‘Da Vinci’s Demons‘ star Lara Pulver, Annabelle Wallis, Lesley Manville, Anna Chancellor, Samuel West and Rupert Evans. ‘Fleming’ will debut on Sky Atlantic later on this year.
