Pierce Brosnan's son Sean is to play the former Bond star as a young man in a new movie about a former Irish Republican Army hitman trying to make good after serving 20 years in the notorious Long Kesh prison. The Brosnans are planning to shoot action thriller Last Man Out, based on a script by comedian-turned-U.S. chat show host Craig Ferguson, in Belfast, Northern Ireland later this year (13). Pierce explains, "It's about the last man out of Long Kesh and the ghosts that he lives with and flashbacks to his younger life and me as a young man, so I was like, 'Sean, why not?' "I'd known Craig, did his show and we live in the same neighbourhood and he came to me with this and I said, 'Yeah, let's have a crack at it.' Terry Loane is a Belfast director who I've wanted to work with. It's a little film." And Sean is also set to team up with his teenage half-brother Dylan to adapt a Joyce Carol Oates short story for the screen. The boys' proud dad adds, "Dylan is a smart lad and he's just done the adaptation. It's a 12, 15 minute film. He and his brother, my son Sean, who is a writer, producer and director are making it together... It's in the blood."
