Brosnan and Campbell are currently filming action thriller 'The Foreigner' with Jackie Chan and are set to team up after this again with Hemingway's last novel 'Across The River And Into The Trees'.

Will definitely be checking these ones out, the former because Campbell does action well, and haven't seen Jackie Chan in anything for years, and the latter to see how Campbell does what sounds like a straight drama. Anyone read the book?

The filming of a scene from The Foreigner caused a bit of a hoo-hah recently, because it involved the blowing-up of a double-decker bus on one of the bridges than spans the Thames. It was felt in some quarters that inadequate warning of what was going on was given, and some people mistook it for a real-life terrorist attack.

Here's a poster for The Foreigner,



I'm looking forward to this. Two stars I've admired from my childhood uniting in a genre that their famous for.

Brosnan going for the "businessman who angrily yammers into his phone on the bus" look.

laugh

Side note: I wonder if this is indicative of Campbell's preferred working relationship with Brosnan than with Craig? Two films post-GE/CR with Brosnan seems pretty telling.

Who'd wanna work with a guy who'd rather slash his wrists than spend a few weeks every 3 years doing pretend gunfights and dry-humping attractive women for millions of dollars?

Looks like this is the film in which Brosnan plays an ex-Irish Republican terrorist turned politician (a while back there was Press comment about how much he resembles Gerry Adams, who pretty much is said character in real life).
