Dominic Cooper to play Ian Fleming in TV series

Dominic Cooper is being tipped to play James Bond creator Ian Fleming in a new TV biopic about the author.

London, Nov 7: 'Mamma Mia' star Dominic Cooper is being tipped to play James Bond creator Ian Fleming in a new TV biopic about the author.

The production has been fast-tracked to capitalise on the Bond boom which 'Skyfall', the 23rd 007 film, has generated, reported Sun online.

",'Skyfall' has got punters really excited about Bond, even more than usual, so it just makes sense to bring forward the production of this biopic," a source said.

'Skyfall', starring Daniel Craig as Bond and Javier Bardem as evil Silva, has topped the UK box office since its release last month.

Now the biopic, called 'Fleming', will introduce new fans to the mindset of the author and luxurious locations like his Goldeneye home in Jamaica.
