Bond Bosses Stay Silent On Brosnan Rumours

LATEST: JAMES BOND producers are refusing to confirm actress DAME JUDI DENCH's claim that PIERCE BROSNAN will play 007 in CASINO ROYALE, despite being fired from the franchise.

Dench, who has played Bond's boss M in the last four films, insists fans shouldn't be expecting a new face, contradicting reports both CLIVE OWEN and DANIEL CRAIG are being secretly groomed as the next spy after bosses sacked Brosnan last year (04).

However, production company EON are remaining tight-lipped about Dench's revelation.

A spokesperson says, "No cast members, locations or release dates can be confirmed."

Today (27APR05) British newspaper the DAILY MIRROR quoted Dench as saying, "Despite the fact that everyone on the face of the earth has been tested as his (Brosnan) possible replacement, he'll be doing it again, and it'll be announced come summer (05)."

Brosnan recently admitted he was devastated when movie bosses told him his services were no longer required.
