Pierce Brosnan reunited with three special costars 25 years after filming one of his most beloved films.
The actor, 65, appeared in a special photograph in which he reunited with his Mrs. Doubtfire costars Matthew Lawrence, Mara Wilson and Lisa Jakub.
Former James Bond Pierce Brosnan is now in a different kind of action thriller, “The Foreigner,” starring Jackie Chan as a businessman seeking revenge for his daughter’s death. He also talks to Matt Lauer about the upcoming sequel to “Mamma Mia!”
Jackie Chan stars as a humble businessman whose teenage daughter is killed as a senseless act of politically-motivated terrorism. He is forced into a cat-and-mouse conflict with a British government official (Pierce Brosnan), whose own past may hold clues to the identities of the elusive killers. Martin Campbell directs the STXfilms action-thriller, based on Stephen Leather’s 1992 novel.
Just to get the first question out of the way, Pierce Brosnan, known in many circles as 007 James Bond, and martial arts legend Jackie Chan do not spar in their upcoming film, The Foreigner.
“That did not come into the equation,” Irishman Brosnan, 64, admits. “I might have thrown a few Irish roundhouse (kicks) and probably would have been dealt with quite quickly.”
Instead, the two stars face off in a cat-and-mouse conflict that drives the action thriller (in theaters Oct. 13), which unveils its first trailer exclusively at usatoday.com.
