But, despite being dropped by MGM from the Bond franchise, Brosnan doesn't want to damage the character's image.
A source says, "Pierce is flattered that Quentin wanted him but has politely declined. He wants to move on to other roles and doesn't want to taint a character and a franchise that has been so good to him.
"It would have been tempting to take revenge for the treatment he received by Bond producers but he's happy to just leave them to it and get on with bigger and better projects."17/11/2004 14:18
