Pierce Brosnan Avoided the Bullfights: Brosnan met Israel Tellez, one of the top matadors who appears in the film, but never had any interest in seeing Tellez in action. I dont want to see it. Didnt go near it. The mythology of the bullfighter and the metaphor of it, I thought it was well used in the film by Richard. The poetry of Locke, the paintings of Picasso, Im fascinated. To actually see one go down, no desire.
Pierce Brosnan Says a Remington Steele Movie is a Distinct Possibility: Its in discussion. Were working on it. We have two young, wonderful female writers. Theyve been into the office and theyve got a take on it. I think were looking at New York location-wise. I look for location first. Good restaurants? Days off? I havent really heard the pitch. They only came into the office. Im in the middle of this picture right now. We discussed it, where we would like it to go and theyve come in with a little bit of an idea.
Brosnan revealed that if the film happens, he wont be playing the title role. I wouldnt play him. I would kind of give myself some wonderful cameo role and try to steal the third act or something like that. Im too old to play him right now. I dont want to go back there. Ive been there. Thats where I started. But to be able to produce something and find an actor and actress, I think just the pitch line itself is still good in todays market. Its a piece that is loved and Im still at the table, so to speak, so there could be an audience out there.
Pierce Brosnans Next Big Project: Brosnan was sporting a beard during The Matador press junket and said it was for a movie hes currently working on. Im down in New Mexico making a movie with Liam Neeson and its called Seraphim Falls. Its a post-Civil War Western and I play a man from the Union, a captain, and he plays a colonel from the South.
Brosnan says his character is a field operative of his time. Liam is chasing my character with a posse of four. I take them out one by one until theres just Liam left. His character isnt based on a real person. Its just fictional. David Von Ancken has written this piece. David is a young writer who has done a lot of CSIs and he did one short film called Bullet in the Brain. 15 minutes of pure joy. [Its] beautiful.
The Status of The Topkapi Affair: Brosnan says that despite the changeover at Sony, The Topkapi Affair is moving forward. Were going ahead. Amy Pascal is very enthusiastic for us to make The Topkapi Affair. We have taken just the title and the spine and then embellished upon that and made it our own, so structurally its very sound. And now its time to get the interior and the nuance and the character and the voice, explained Brosnan.
