Brosnan is still Bond man

Brosnan is Still 007
Recent rumors have said that Pierce Brosnan wouldn’t return as 007.†
Empire Online hoped to put the matter to rest…at least for a while:
Eager to put the matter to rest once and for all, Empire Online spoke direct to Eon Productions this morning to find out just what was going on. And let us tell you ñ they’re not happy bunnies there at all. ‘All these rumours have come from a newspaper who quoted someone at Eon when they haven’t spoken to anyone here,’ complained Eon’s Publicity Manger Catherine McCormack.
‘For now, Pierce Brosnan is our James Bond. We haven’t made any statement to say he isn’t our James Bond.’
‘It’s so difficult to comment,’ she went on to say, ‘when we don’t have a script or even a start date.’ So has Brosnan signed a contract with you, we asked. ‘He signed an initial three contract deal with us,’ she explained, ‘and from then on it’s on a film by film basis. So he hasn’t signed one yet.’
So there you go. They don’t have a script. They don’t have a start date. And as of this morning, Eon doesn’t even have a signed contract with Pierce Brosnan ñ but that’s apparently completely normal for this stage of film production. Just so you know.
