Brosnan on his boozy night with Tarantino and Casino Royale

02-Apr-2010 • Bond News

Pierce Brosnan has admitted that he knew he would be stepping down as James Bond when The Bourne Identity topped the US box office.

According to WENN, the actor also spent a night drinking with Quentin Tarantino to discuss how to bring Casino Royale to the big screen.

"That wasn't meant to be. But we (Brosnan and Tarantino) had a great night. I could hardly walk. I had to call a driver up because I could just about put one foot in front of the other. He walked out of the door and then got into his pussymobile and drove away. He's a champion lad, Quentin... Yeah, it wasn't meant to be for him, or for me," he said.

"Once Paul Greengrass let Matt Damon out of the door in such an epic way, the spy genre turned on its head and my time was done. Because then you have a younger man there, and how are you going to move forward?"

Brosnan added: "And they (Bond bosses) couldn't. If they were to do Casino Royale, they couldn't do it with me. Choices were made. The decisions were drawn in the sand - albeit a little late in the day."
