Brosnan To Remake Topkapi As Thomas Crown Affair Sequel02 November 2006
Brosnan hopes to cleverly implant his Thomas Crown character into the Topkapi plot, which revolved around the theft of a jewelled dagger from a museum in Istanbul, Turkey. The new film will be called THE TOPKAPI AFFAIR.
Brosnan tells website Moviehole.net, "(Topkapi) is much loved by people who love that genre of film, and it has a sentimental resonance to it.
"So we just took Thomas Crown off the shelf, kind of dusted it off, and took Topkapi, which is much loved, and is also in the cannon of the Mgm library, so it didn't cost us anything.
"This version of Topkapi will have a different part, different woman, and different affair... and we're using wonderful locations."
The Thomas Crown Affair remake, which starred Brosnan and Rene Russo, was a critical and commercial success when it was released in 1999.
