Sometimes, you just can't do it all. Duncan Jones is finding this out as the director has had to exit the brewing feature film on 007 creator Ian Fleming. First announced back in 2012, not much had been heard about the movie since, which would be based on Andrew Lycett's biography "Ian Fleming: The Man Behind James Bond" and focus on the author's real life spy adventures that later informed his creation of James Bond. So why has he bounced?

Duncan Jones is a man who's had his fair share of suitors. The one-time commercials helmer made one of the most exciting directorial debuts in recent memory with 2009's "Moon," and followed it up with last year's hugely enjoyable sci-fi thriller "Source Code," a film that managed to be a pretty modest little hit ($150 million worldwide on a $30 million budget. And as such, he's been courted for some pretty major Hollywood projects, taking meetings to direct "Man Of Steel," "The Wolverine" and "The Hunger Games" sequel "Catching Fire," but ultimately not taking any of them. Indeed, things have been quiet on the Jones front: the actor's been developing passion project "Mute" and an secret sci-fi project inspired by "Blade Runner," but all we've seen from him in the last year was a commercial for a bank.
