Brosnan Still Disappointed About Casino Royale
Pierce Brosnan is still upset he wasn't called up for a final James Bond adventure in Casino Royale because he always wanted to go back and investigate the birth of 007. Instead, Daniel Craig was called in to take over the superspy role in the prequel. Irishman Brosnan tells website Moviehole.net, "I always wanted to go back, because it's the blueprint of Bond's character. "It's the one where Fleming really painted in the details of what Bond was about, so I was disappointed that it didn't happen." Ironically, it was Brosnan and prospective director Quentin Tarantino who first approached Bond producers about remaking Casino Royale.
