Jason Connery is keen to drag his reclusive dad SEAN back into the limelight with a dazzling father-and-son production, which Jason would direct.

The 74-year-old JAMES BOND star recently ditched Hollywood for good, declaring his contempt for "the idiots" in the US movie industry - but his optimistic son has other ideas.

He says, "I would love to direct him but I would never go to him unless I thought it was something he would be really interested in.

"If something came up we could do together, I think it would be fantastic.

"There's nothing in the pipeline but one of the things I've learned over the years, as indeed my dad has, is never say never."
