Pierce Brosnan Joins Owen Wilson In THE COUP - Movies In Focus
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. Source: Deadline
