Dominic Cooper, who played Howard Stark in “Captain America: The First Avenger”, is set to play Ian Fleming in a four-part miniseries. It will chronicle Fleming’s days in WWII, where he worked for the British Naval Intelligence, and helped inspire him to write a little novel called “Casino Royale” with a character named James Bond.

Annabelle Wallis (“Snow White and the Huntsman”) will play Muriel Wright, a woman that he had a love affair with and is said to be the inspiration for the “Bond girl”.
