BROSNAN BACK FOR THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR II!

BROSNAN BACK FOR THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR II!

We’ve known for a while that Pierce Brosnan was returning to conduct a spot more upmarket thievery of the extremely cunning kind with a sequel to ‘The Thomas Crown Affair’ and we’ve now heard that proceedings are well off the starting block’s with casting for ‘The Topkapi Affair’ beginning shortly.

The new caper is partly based on 1964's Topkapi. "We are just using a sliver of that," he says, including the same setting, Istanbul. This time, his billionaire thief is after a rare diamond instead of paintings.

"This is a different affair," Brosnan says. That is an understatement, considering that Dutch filmmaker Paul Verhoeven (Starship Troopers, Showgirls) is in charge. "He does sexy well," says theBrosnan, which means, "I will have to go to the gym to get rid of my Mamma Mia! middle."

It’s good news to hear this one’s finally gearing up into action, and we’re sure that many will not be disappointed to see the delectable Renne Russo replaced by the equally curvaceous pouty mouthed multi-national adopter, Angelina Jolie.

That is so cool. I loved the first one. I've been hoping for a new one for years. I love the setting of Istanbul. It will be wonderful to see Pierce get steamy with Angelina.
