Emma Thompson requested Pierce Brosnan as co-star for new film 'The Love Punch'

05-May-2014 • Actor News

In a recent interview with Ham & High Emma Thompson revealed that she was keen to work with 007 star Pierce Brosnan on her new film.

As the director of 'The Love Punch', Joel Hopkins explained: "After that we had remained friends and wanted to work together again on something more playful. It was a matter of, ‘So who do you want to work with?’ and she came up with Pierce."

Of their co-starring roles in the film, Thompson comments: "Pierce and I had always said, ‘Are we going to work together?’ But it’s finding the right thing. When Joel came up with a home counties heist movie about people who live in Surrey who go off and steal a diamond, I said, ‘That’s it! Fantastic idea!’ Pierce has glamour and an extraordinary grace like a ballerina, but he can also be very surprising and normal and Catholic. In this you practically expect him to whip out some knitting."
