Pierce talks Crown 2

01.25.2007

Pierce Brosnan is out promoting his upcoming Western SERAPHIM FALLS and told Entertainment Weekly that he's headed back to one of his more familiar characters. Sorry Daniel Craig haters - he's not returning for Bond but instead for THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR 2. The long-rumored project looks like it'll finally be a go according to Pierce. "THOMAS CROWN 2, for all intents and purposes, will happen. The script came in two days ago and it's good. We've announced it, we've said to the world that we're going to do it -- come hell or high water, we're going to do it. The bar is high on this one, the expectation is high on it." Sounds pretty emphatic that they're really gonna do it and it's not just a bunch of bunk. The film would be called THE TOPKAPI AFFAIR and would actually be a loose remake of the 1964 MGM film TOPKAPI about the heist of a jeweled dagger from an Istanbul museum. Harley Peyton (BANDITS) wrote a draft of the script but it's unclear if that has been rewritten.

Extra Tidbit: In the same EW interview, Bronsan confirms he and Quentin Tarantino approached Bond's producers looking to do a version of CASINO ROYALE together but were shot down.

I think you're thinking of Robert Rodriguez. He removed himself from the director's guild after they gave him shit for wanting Frank Miller to co-direct Sin City with him. Tarantino has directed a number of films for Miramax, which at the time was a subsidiary of Disney.

me thinks...

Tarantino is not allowed to direct a movie for MGM or any of the other major studios because he is not a member of the Directors Guild of America.

WHAT?!

If that Tarantino and Brosnan doing Casino Royale thing is true... I'm seriously pissed off. Nobody should ever prevent Tarantino from making a new movie. That's just retarded.

Of all the unnecessary sequels ... Don't get me wrong, I really liked the first film, but it does NOT need a sequel! If they really want to do another movie like that, just give it a different title and character names. NO SEQUEL NECESSARY!

Cool

I REALLY liked the first film. The only thing i didn't really enjoy was the large amounts of sex. I couldn't find a concrete reason they had to put that in for. If someone could explain, that would be great
