Brosnan Considers Remington Return

PIERCE BROSNAN is hoping to return to the role that almost cost him JAMES BOND.

The Irish actor is in negotiations to bring back his smooth detective REMINGTON STEELE for a new movie even though the bosses of the TV series, which launched him as a star in America, once forced him to turn down 007.

Brosnan's contract forced him to turn down the chance to play Bond in THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS in the mid-1980s. He was lucky enough for the role to be offered to him again in the 1990s.

But the actor says, "I like the idea (of Remington Steele) I think a new version would do well.

"The programme had a style and glamour that's missing on TV now."
