I started this thread cause I wanted to know if I'm the only one who would have liked a 5th Brosnan 007 film.
If there was, what would it be like? Was there ever anything planned or rumors besides the Tarantino ones?
What would it be called? Who would perform the theme song, direct and star in it? What would it be about?
_____________________________________________________________________

4 FILMS & 7 YEARS IS NOT ENOUGH
THEME SONG: I would have liked to hear Shirley Bassey or Tina Turner again.
DIRECTED BY: Martin Campbell (so long as he still directs CR 2006) can't think of anyone else.
CAST: M, Moneypenny, Bill Tanner, John Cleese, Charles Robinson, Valentin Zukovsky, Natalya Simonova, Jack Wade, Damian Falco and Jinx.
PLOT: Cyber terrorism.......
So basically Goldeneye all over again. So that is my checklist. One last hurrah...

ACE came up with a great storyline for a proposed fifth film entitled SHATTERHAND.

No, you're not. Brosnan and his agent would have liked one, too.

I was ready for a fifth Brosnan movie after seeing Die Another Day. But that time has come and gone, I don't worry too much about it anymore.

Right after DAD I had no doubt Brosnan would do the next. I would not have cared a lot if it had been in the same vein. But if there had followed his 'FYEO-type' of a grounded - relatively speaking - spy thriller I would have welcomed that. Brosnan's age didn't bother me at the time and I daresay it wouldn't have bothered most audiences.

Today I don't miss that fifth Brosnan entry. It wasn't ever going to be that legendary Tarantino film anyway, so why bother?

Which I helped with when we did one of the very first Ultimate Bond incarnations - speaking of, don't forget Stormcaller, the Brosnan Ultimate Bond we did!

I wouldn't have minded a fifth Brosnan film it it meant that EON actually got around to casting Jennifer Garner as a Bond girl. I think she would have made a great Pam Bouvier-type Bond girl.

If I were putting together a fifth Brosnan Bond film, I think it would be a bit of a mix of LICENCE TO KILL and THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN, with Bond being singled out by a master assassin in the early goings of the film. Rather than sending Bond a bullet with his number on it, perhaps the assassin gets to a target of Bond's first, ruining Bond's ability to get information from the target before he was to eliminate him, which would then set off a cat and mouse game between Bond and the assassin.

God no. Jennifer Garner is terrible in everything, just look at your profile pic, Yvonne Strahovski is who we need for a Bond girl

She's so terrible that she's had steady work in for the last decade or so, including a role in a film nominated for Best Picture (JUNO).

ALIAS was a terrific show, at least until it got far too muddled in its mythology for its own good, and she was great in it. She was also very good in THE KINGDOM. Those are the two projects that show her qualifications for a Bond girl, even though it's now probably too late for her to appear in a film as she's just turned 40 this year.

I'd love to see Yvonne Strahovski in a Bond film, but it's most likely never going to happen. If they didn't go for Garner, I don't see them going for Strahovski. Strahovski wouldn't have been an appropriate choice for a fifth Brosnan film anyway. She would have been too young to appear in a fifth Brosnan film. Garner would have been a great choice for a 2004 Brosnan Bond film.

I've always viewed EVERTHING OR NOTHING as the 'lost' Brosnan film that would/should have come out in 2004. It had all the ingredients of a big, fun Bond a la TSWLM and MR and continued in the very same over-the-top vein as DAD two years prior. Outside of Richard Kiel reprising his role as Jaws, I could very well have seen Willem Dafoe, Heidi Klum and Shannon Elizabeth all appearing in a mid-2000s Bond film alongside Pierce Brosnan.

HAHAHAHAHA!


But yes, I liked Brosnan at the time, and I really wouldn't have minded a fifth Brosnan outing. I too view Everything or Nothing as the fifth Brosnan Bond. Fantastic game.

When Die Another Day was released I was 12 years old. I have no guilt admitting that I absoloutely loved it at the. Think it's awful now, but nevermind. A fifth OTT Brosnan film would've worked for me, since I was so young. I was gunning for his return after 'the brilliant Die Another Day'. I think Pierce did deserve another one. I still think this now. As much as I feel that Brosnans era was the weakest of the lot, there's just something so watchable about them. Bad dialogue, awful action sequences, Brosnan pouts (I'm ommiting GoldenEye in all of this), I can't get enough of the guy. I think we needed one last hurrah, before the reboot. (Which was the best thing to happen to the franchise.)

Woulda... coulda... shoulda...
Rather a moot point, wouldn't you say guys? A 5th Brosanan movie might've worked. I admit, I felt DAD was the most disappointing of them (there HAD to be one, right) and I agree with Dustin about a more, grittier FYEO kind of film would've made an adequate follow-up. But were he to pull another Warner Brothers maneuver (aka Connery '83) it would just make him seem desperate.

Fair enough, i'm not a fan of Jennifer Garner, but others are entitled to be. As for Yvonne Strahovski being too young, had there been a Bond movie in 2004, she would've been 22, the one year younger than Rosamund Pike was when DAD was released. So I don't believe she would've too young and let's not forget (IMO) the only blight on FYEO, Bibi Dahl who was played by the then 21-year-old Lynn-Holly Johnson (granted she played a 15 year old). So now Yvonne would not be too young, but I see her more fitting in with the current crop of Bond girls. I would cast her as a rival (enemy or friendly) agent that could go toe to toe with Daniel Craig. Bond 24 perhaps?

Shortly after DAD was released, I recall MGM releasing a statement saying the next [Brosnan Bond film] would have been more of the same. I also know that they were working on a script that was going nowhere. So perhaps for a time they were working on another OTT Brosnan film, before, as Brosnan put it: paralysis set in.

There was a part of me (during viewing of DAD initially) that felt this was as far as they could go in this (over the top) direction. So perhaps it was inevitable that the next film was going to be a down to Earth thriller, but at the same time I would have ate up another OTT film.

Though to be honest I'm not sure how you can top DAD in terms of scale and not enter the realm of silly.

SERPENT'S TOOTH by Paul Gullacy did have dinosaurs, gigantic robotic landscape clods, a James Bond in a sleeveless Master of Kung Fu/SM- battledress. It's from the 90s and I imagine it could have been a template for another OTT romp.

Warhead would have been cool but I think EON bought the rights from them so that it can never happen, If I remember correctly.

No, you're not. Brosnan and his agent would have liked one, too.


Maybe they didn't or they wouldn't have asked for so much money. At least that is what Brosnan says the producers thought about him (Asking for to much money).


ACE came up with a great storyline for a proposed fifth film entitled SHATTERHAND.

Which I helped with when we did one of the very first Ultimate Bond incarnations - speaking of, don't forget Stormcaller, the Brosnan Ultimate Bond we did!


Where can I find this SHATTERHAND storyline? Sounds cool.

Fair enough, i'm not a fan of Jennifer Garner, but others are entitled to be.

I'm not a Jennifer Garner fan myself. My god I never realized Rosamund Pike was so young, she is even younger then Eve Green was in CR.

I expected a FYEO kind of movie for PB after DAD, a shame it did not happen.
But no use crying of spilled milk.


Good point and thanks to everyone for posting.

I was hoping for one and though it might not seem like it around these parts, so were many people. Brosnan was very popular in the role and was initially asked back after DAD opened.

In the end, I'm sure it was a combination of factors. Brosnan probably wanted a lot of money and the action film landscape had significantly changed with films like "Batman Begins" and "The Bourne Identity," there's no denying that. Not to mention reboots were just becoming all the rage.

We probably would have seen a "FYEO" style film had Brosnan done a fifth film. At this point though, I can't complain. Casino Royale is one of the best in the series and SkyFall looks like it could legitamitely be contending for the top spot. QoS was a big letdown though.

In 2003, I would've welcomed a fifth Brosnan film. Today, I'm glad everything panned out the way it did. We got the excellent CR out of it and arguably the best James Bond. I also consider Everything or Nothing the fifth Brosnan Bond film. In certain ways, I think it worked better than Die Another Day.

Its to bad they couldn't have worked everything out with Brosnan as Bond when they originally wanted him in 1986 and then 89-95 hiatus. I think a down to earth 5th Brosnan film would have been his FYEO but again lawsuit troubles kept anything from happening in 2004.

Even if he did become Bond instead of Dalton, I think the legal problems that kept Bond off the screen for six years would have still happened. I think the only difference with Brosnan though, is that they might have kept him around instead of giving him the boot.

Interesting thought - would Brosnan have continued to be Bond after that hiatus? And how would his two Bond films before that have turned out?

I can imagine TLD with Brosnan. But not LTK.

But LTK was written with Dalton in mind, had Brosnan done TLD, LTK would have been written with Brosnan in mind and his strengths as an actor.

I believe I read that the studio was pushing for Brosnan in GE and Barbara wanted Sean Bean, but if Brosnan had already done TLD and LTK who knows.... they would have that to go from but it still seems Brosnan would be asked back IMO. Who knows how it would have changed Brosnan's career as well.

If only the producers didn't make it public that they wanted Brosnan in 86 and waited patiently for his contract to expire, it might have been.

I'm not sure, in the "James Bond: Unmasked" book, which was written by one of our staff members, Dalton seems to dispell the belief that LTK was written for him.

Did Barbara really favor Sean Bean for GE? I wasn't aware of that, though I've always had the impression that she didn't care much for Brosnan. It would certainly explain why Eon didn't fight harder for him to make a fifth. If they had been keen on him, he certainly could have done more. Hell, looking at recent photos of him, I think he could have carried on for another several films. With a tan and a flattering angle, he's as well-preserved now as Moore ever was. And 100% less bug-eyed. (Of course, I'm glad he didn't carry on, given that we lucked out and got Craig. But a long Brosnan reign could easily have happened.)

I just assumed LTK was written with Dalton in mind because I though it was written after TLD while Dalton was Bond, but if Dalton says so. My mistake.

In the 'Was Brosnan let down by the producers OR were the producers let down' thread its mentioned a lot that Barbara and Brosnan didn't get along and that she favored Sean Bean.
