Emma Thompson requested Pierce Brosnan as co-star for new film 'The Love Punch'
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, âSo who do you want to work with?â and she came up with Pierce."
Of their co-starring roles in the film, Thompson comments: "Pierce and I had always said, âAre we going to work together?â But itâs 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, âThatâs it! Fantastic idea!â 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."
