Just watched an interesting interview with James Bond star Pierce Brosnan in which he revealed that hed signed to do a fifth Bond movie, but that MGN had terminated his contract and let him go. He said he was pretty angry about the whole thing, and said hell probably never find out the truth but that a lot of politics were involved.

I wonder if this does indeed open the way for Colin Farrell?

That would be an interesting case for 007 to investigate...

He's getting old.

(Edit) Well I saw some gray hair on him a few months ago...

My theory is it has all to do with the Sony takeover thing. I think the new owners probably want to start from scratch with the series or something, although I would have thought having Brosnan on board would guarantee them a sure fire smash to open up with. Oh well.

Indeed, and boring.

He was a pretty cool Bond. :(

i heard through a news source that our own Eric Bana was up for a possible role... also considered was Russell Crowe...

Though i do remember when the original TR flick was due for release there were plenty of "possibles" and "potentials" - like i guess there is for every hollywood flick...

PB did well - though i think there are plenty out there that could also fill the Bond shoes - including Colin...

Colin is a dirty sleaze. Bond men are classy, refined and are smooth with the ladies. Colin is the kind of guy to spill his beer down a ladies shirt. No way. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yuck.gif

Hugh Jackman, anytime, anywhere. :D

I would make a fantastic Bond i can assure you, but i am too young! :(

Am not even joking, I WOULD!

Infact i have been told lots of times i should be an actor, but lets be honest it wouldnt be the best career move for me, lmao!

Yeah, don't pull a Jack Ryan (Ben Affleck replaced Harrison Ford).

What about Hugh Grant? Maybe not he's quite old too and he's never really gone in for thriller, only romantic and comedy.

I agree Andromeda, I don't really see Farrell in the role.

07-11-04, 17:06
Hugh Grant doesn't look serious.

i cant picture anyone as bond. ill just have to wait and see on who they pick. im sure the new bond, whoever he may be, will be an excellent choice.

This from www.imdb.com (http://www.imdb.com) -

Pierce Brosnan has further spoken of his anger when movie bosses told him he would no longer be playing superspy James Bond. The 51-year-old claims he was asked to return as 007, before a sudden telephone call revealed his services were no longer required, leaving him "gutted". Appearing on TV show Friday Night With Jonathan Ross, Brosnan said, "When they told me, I was angry and the conversation was pretty short and sweet. They invited me back, and they changed their minds half-way through negotiations. It's hard to find the truth. If you get uptight it just does your head in so you've got to let it go. I thought they did me a favor, really...leave while you're on top." Brosnan starred in four Bond movies, beginning with 1995's GoldenEye.

So long as they don't pick Tom Cruise...can't stand him, & I don't think he's handsome.

Well Colin Farrell isn't too chirpy about filling the boots of Brosnan, according to www.imdb.com (http://www.imdb.com) -

Colin Farrell appears to have issued a kind of "General Sherman statement" ("If nominated I will not run; if elected I will not serve.") regarding reports that he is high on the list of candidates to become the next James Bond. "The idea of me playing James Bond got into the press, but it is not true. I would not like to do it ... they should find someone the audience has no history with," Farrell told Reuters.
