Tarantino would 'bring Bond to life'

Pierce Brosnan thinks it would be a “magnificent” idea to have Quentin Tarantino direct the next James Bond film.

Tarantino is the unlikely favourite to take over the Bond franchise after he let the series producers know he is a huge fan. He particularly wants to remake Casino Royale.

After meeting the maverick Pulp Fiction director, Brosnan believes he would be the perfect choice to remake the 1967 movie, which was filmed as an unofficial Bond spoof starring David Niven.

He says: "Quentin and I met and he is a huge Bond fan. He wants to remake Casino Royale. I don't know if it's ever going to happen.

“What Tarantino would bring to the film is life, and just a great sense of excitement and danger, and the perspective of a film-maker who has really made people sit up and watch his movies.

“He's got a cutting edge, which we got with the last Bond film, Die Another Day - with Lee Tamahori's sense of flair. Someone like Quentin would be magnificent."
