Former JAMES BOND PIERCE BROSNAN is set to return to the big screen as master thief THOMAS CROWN in a remake of Peter Ustinov's 1964 crime caper Topkapi. Brosnan hopes to cleverly implant his Thomas Crown character into the Topkapi plot, which revolved around the theft of a jewelled dagger from a museum in Istanbul, Turkey. The new film will be called THE TOPKAPI AFFAIR. Brosnan tells website Moviehole.net, "(Topkapi) is much loved by people who love that genre of film, and it has a sentimental resonance to it. "So we just took Thomas Crown off the shelf, kind of dusted it off, and took Topkapi, which is much loved, and is also in the cannon of the Mgm library, so it didn't cost us anything. "This version of Topkapi will have a different part, different woman, and different affair... and we're using wonderful locations." The Thomas Crown Affair remake, which starred Brosnan and Rene Russo, was a critical and commercial success when it was released in 1999.
