If it worked for Liam Neeson, maybe it can work for Pierce Brosnan. Brosnan is working with fellow Irishman, Dundalk-born director John Moore (Behind Enemy Lines, A Good Day to Die Hard), on the upcoming thriller I.T. Brosnan plays a captain of industry who seems to have it all. He has a beautiful home and family and a thriving business that makes him all sorts of money. But Brosnan’s character soon finds himself embroiled in a conflict with his information technology consultant, who begins threatening his family. Specifically, the I.T. consultant is targeting Brosnan’s daughter, a plot twist that seems to have been inspired by Liam Neeson’s lucrative Taken franchise. Can Brosnan kick butt and save the day like Neeson? We’ll see when I.T. is released late this year or early next. ♦
