Pierce Brosnan is out promoting his upcoming "Seraphim Falls," and told Entertainment Weekly that he's headed back to one of his more familiar characters - Thomas Crown.
The long in development project looks like it's 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."
"The Topkaki Affair" is the title, and would be a loose remake of the 1964 MGM film Topkaki about the heist from an Istanbul museum. Brosnan has stated that actress Rene Russo will not be in this "Affair."
Irish DreamTime, Brosnan's Santa Monica, California home base production company, along with producers Beau St. Clair and Dino Conte with MGM studos are producing.
