Bond star Pierce Brosnan is keen to return to action movies and is eyeing a role in blockbuster film franchise The Expendables.

The Irish star has been largely absent from action films since vacating his role as 007 in 2002, but he has been approached by Expendables producer Avi Lerner about joining the franchise's star-packed cast for a future installment.

Brosnan is eager to unite with Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham and Jet Li in the series, telling ComingSoon.net, "I said to Avi Lerner, 'If it works out and you have a good script, Avi, you know where to find me if you still want me.' It's as simple as that really. I had a grand time in his company.

"Sylvester Stallone is the one that's given us these wonderful platforms for actors who have and had careers to go play and have fun and to entertain. To bring a bunch of guys together who saved the world, fought the bad guys, and put them all on the same stage, that's crazy good.

"It's just about entertainment. Avi is somebody I've heard about and his movies always have big brash entertainment value to them. You can really change the world and that's great, but The Expendables? Yeah, I'd love to do The Expendables. It's just a kick in the pants."

Brosnan also defends the casting of sitcom icon Kelsey Grammer in The Expendables 3, which is set for release in August (14), adding, "He's a fantastic actor, Kelsey Grammer. You don't have that kind of career without having a talent, without having something to say and to give to an audience."
