USA Today is reporting that Pierce Brosnan will soon be returning to reprise his role in a Thomas Crown Affair sequel to the 1999 remake. The sequel will be partly based on 1964’s Topkapi: “We are just using a sliver of that,” Brosnan says. This time, the billionaire thief will be after a rare diamond instead of paintings. Rene Russo will not be returning, and Angelina Jolie is considered in the running for a new female co-star. “This is a different affair, ” Brosnan says.
Paul Verhoeven is returning to direct and the movie should arrive by next year.
