Pierce Brosnan Joins Owen Wilson In THE COUP

 Prince's Trust Celebrate Success Awards at the Theatre Royal

Former James Bond, Pierce Brosnan is set to join Owen Wilson in director John Eric Dowdle’s The Coup.

According to Deadline:

“[The film] centers on an American family that moves to Southeast Asia and finds itself entangled in a violent coup where merciless rebels are attacking the city. “

Brosnan will play a “will play a mysterious government operative” in the film which starts shooting in October.

Personally I’m a bit miffed that Brosnan hasn’t snagged a juicy lead in a big movie in recent times – something like The Da Vinci Code or maybe Taken (only better than those) – a shame because he really does add a touch of old school movie star charisma to proceedings.

Maybe this will change.
