It seems that some recent and not-so recent rumors about James McAvoy's upcoming film projects are not true. Collider recently spoke with the actor, who was promoting his new film The Last Station and he revealed he won't be starring as Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit or as the James Bond author Ian Fleming in the biopic Fleming.
For James McAvoy, those rumors include playing Bilbo Baggins in Guillermo del Toro's The Hobbit, and a more recent rumor that he's going to star as Ian Fleming in a biopic that Animus Films is developing.
But according to McAvoy, it's all rumors and nothing more. Regarding the Ian Fleming movie, McAvoy says he read the script a long time ago but he never spoke with the producers, so he doesn't know where the story originates from. He also denies The Hobbit story.
