Is there not a movie about a man who never was? Is there not a current remake?

Yes and yes.

The Man Who Never Was was a 1956 film about Operation Mincemeat in WW2, in which a corpse dressed in the uniform of a British officer, carrying bogus plans, was used to decieve the Germans and Italians into believing that the Allies would attack Greece rather than Sicily. There is recently released film on the same subject, entitled Operation Mincemeat.
