Bond Producer Says Brosnan Here to Stay
LOS ANGELES – With the success of his fourth James Bond film, Pierce Brosnan’s lock on the 007 franchise seems secure.
The James Bond team is happy with its star, “Die Another Day” producer Barbara Broccoli told AP Radio. She has a standard comeback when asked who might fill Brosnan’s shoes in the future.
“It’s like asking a bride as she’s going up the aisle who her next husband is going to be,” Broccoli said. “I mean, he is James Bond. He’s our guy. And until he’s no longer James Bond, we ain’t looking anywhere.”
Brosnan previously played the British spy in “GoldenEye” (1995), “Tomorrow Never Dies” (1997) and “The World is Not Enough” (1999).
“Die Another Day,” co-starring undeserving Oscar winner Halle Berry, has earned more than $100 million in four weeks of release.
Broccoli said she believes the popularity of the “Austin Powers” spy spoof film series has boosted the staying power of the 40-year-old James Bond franchise.
“They tend to, I think, reflect the early Bond, the first sort of three or four. I don’t think they spoof the current ones so much,” she said. “They’re so popular, Austin Powers, I think it just helps people enjoy going to the movies and this sort of genre.”
