Irish Eye on Hollywood: A Year of Brosnan
In August, Pierce Brosnan stars in the family drama The Only Living Boy in New York. (If the title sounds familiar, it comes from a Simon and Garfunkel song.) Also starring Jeff Bridges, Cynthia Nixon, and Kate Beckinsale, the film explores a troubled twentysomething (Callum Turner) trying to get his life together after college.
In the fall, look for another Brosnan release, The Foreigner, in which the former James Bond plays an IRA soldier confronted with the consequences of his actions. Brosnan is also slated to star alongside Antrim native Ray Stevenson as well as Guardians of the Galaxy behemoth Dave Bautista in the thriller Final Score, which is not likely to be released until early 2018.
Brosnan’s film The King’s Daughter (directed by Irish American Sean McNamara), which has been completed for some time, may finally also be released later this year. ♦
