Tradecraft: Brosnan For Prime Minister
Variety reports that Pierce Brosnan will star in a political thriller for Roman Polanski called The Ghost, based on a book by Robert Harris. (Another Bond starred in another Harris adaptation before.) Nicholas Cage and Tilda Swinton also star. Says the trade, "Cage will play a ghostwriter hired abruptly to finish the memoirs of an ex-British prime minister after the first scribe turned up dead. The ghostwriter's research leads him to uncover skeletons in the pol's closet that put the writer's life in danger. Swinton will play the wife of the former prime minister (Brosnan). Her marriage is crumbling, and she falls for the writer." Sounds good. I can definitely see Brosnan as a politician!
