Entertainment Weekly chatted with Seraphim Falls star Pierce Brosnan about the highly-anticipated sequel to The Thomas Crown Affair.

"Thomas Crown 2, for all intents and purposes, will happen," the former James Bond star said. "The script came in two days ago and it's good. We've announced it, we've said to the world that we're going to do it -- come hell or high water, we're going to do it. The bar is high on this one, the expectation is high on it."

Brosnan, who will produce, added that Rene Russo is not part of the sequel.

The follow-up is titled The Topkapi Affair and will draw on material from 1964's Topkapi, an MGM film, and the Eric Ambler novel which it was based on, called "The Light of the Day."

That's a lame name for the sequel...I'd rather they called it...Thomas Crown Affair 2
 
No Rene Russo? :huh:
The first was good and they were really good together.
 
cool, the first one was great - much better than entrapment.
Ive heard of topkaki for a few years now, nice to hear the script is done.
brosnan deserves it, great actor given **** bond scripts.
 
I liked the first one, though the original with Steve McQueen was cooler.

It's nice to see Brosnan isn't written off in Hollywood now he's no longer Bond. The guy's too cool for retirement yet.

Brosnan and Jolie for 'Thomas Crown' Sequel

I remember very little about the Pierce Brosnan / Rene Russo version of The Thomas Crown Affair. I know that A) I liked it, B) that Rene Russo was frequently topless in it (see A), and C) there was a really cool scene with a bunch of dudes in hats. The film grossed a respectable $70 million back in 1999, and was a huge hit on video. And now a sequel is underway. You'll remember Thomas Crown was a remake of the Steve McQueen / Faye Dunaway original, which did not spawn a sequel. So are they coming up with an original story for TCA Part 2? Of course not, silly! Brosnan told Filmstalker that the sequel will be based on the Peter Ustinov classic Topkapi, and will be called The Topkapi Affair.

Moviehole is reporting that the screenplay is based on the novel Light of Day (this one, by Eric Ambler), so I suppose the script pulls from both sources. Casting has already begun on the sequel, and Brosnan says "This version of Topkapi will have a different part, different woman, and different affair. The guy is a little bit more seasoned and we're using wonderful locations this time." Wait, who is this different woman Brosnan is talking about? How do you one-up the gorgeous Rene Russo? Believe it or not, they did -- Angelina Jolie has reached a deal to play the love interest. The plot for this new adventure centers on getting the Kasikci Diamond out of Topkapki Palace, which is in Istanbul. The IMDb lists the screenwriter as Harley Peyton, whose last produced script was 2001's spotty Bandits. No word on a director yet, but let's hope they bring John McTiernan back. Mr. Die Hard stooped to making Rollerball, for crying out loud. Expect The Topkapi Affair in 2008.
 
Ugh. Just another ridiculous and crappy sequel we don't need.
 
I hope I'm not the only one who thinks Angelina Jolie = major step down from Rene Russo. :csad:
 
PIERCE BROSNAN>DANIEL CRAIG

DANIEL CRAIG BOND MOVIE>ALL OF BROSNANS BAR GOLDENEYE

Man, I remember the talk of a tarantino royale with a brosnan swansong. It would have been my dream movie.

But Topkaki sounds mental. Can't wait-should be a big movie; especially with Jolie attached. Here's hoping they keep on makin em

November 10, 2007


Paul Verhoeven (Black Book, Basic Instinct, Total Recall told Dutch radio program "Met Het Oog Op Morgen" ("With the Eye on Tomorrow") this week that he will direct the sequel to 1999's The Thomas Crown Affair.

The follow-up, again starring Pierce Brosnan, is titled The Topkapi Affair and will draw on material from 1964's Topkapi, an MGM film, and the Eric Ambler novel which it was based on, called "The Light of the Day."
 
Coolll.....the movie will have a lots of ultra voilence and sex scenes....LOL
 
Brosnan is so passed his prime... he's doing TV movies these days... and Seraphrim Falls was a flop. I hope this gets him back on the map though... he hag a good thing going with this... he should have done sequels sooner... instead he did Die Another Day... o well...
 
Pierce Brosnan is the man. :up:

With Verhoeven directing this, it is guaranteed to not be horrible.
