Brosnan Will Play Bond Again

Irish superstar PIERCE BROSNAN will play suave superspy JAMES BOND again - after patching up his feud with the BROCCOLI family.

The RULES OF ATTRACTION actor, 51, was thought to have lost the prestigious job after film executives deemed him too old to continue playing the sexy secret agent.

But despite reports British hunks CLIVE OWEN and JUDE LAW have been approached to replace him, insiders say Pierce - who had publically slammed the Broccoli's for delaying the project - is still their number one choice for Bond.

A source says BARBARA BROCCOLI told employees she had forgiven Brosnan's recent outbursts, as they didn't compare to the friction between her father CUBBY and original Bond SEAN CONNERY.

Broccoli reportedly said, "If you knew what my father went through with Sean Connery, that's nothing."
