Brosnan back for Bond
09:30 28 April 2005
Pierce Brosnan will star as James Bond again, according to legendary British actress Dame Judi Dench.
The Oscar-winning star has let slip the handsome actor - who quit earlier this year after playing the suave spy four times - will reprise the role in new movie 'Casino Royale'.
Dame Judi revealed: "Despite the fact that everyone on the face of the earth has been tested to replace him, Pierce will be doing it again. It will be officially announced this summer."
Brosnan reportedly stepped down from the role after movie producers refused to pay the £20million fee the Irish actor was demanding. British actors Daniel Craig and Clive Owen and 'Nip/Tuck' star Julian McMahon had all been hotly tipped to land the role.
But it is now rumoured the 51-year-old star has negotiated a two-film deal, said to be worth £22million, to give bosses time to find a suitable successor.
