Former Bond actor Pierce Brosnan and his son are to play an IRA hitman on the the big screen.
The Mamma Mia! star said that he wanted to work with Sean (29) on the film adaptation of the thriller The Ghosts Of Belfast, set after the Troubles.
Brosnan (59) is expected to play a former IRA hitman in the movie, with his son taking the role of his character's younger self.
The actor told the Radio Times that the film, Last Man Out, is "about a man released from prison who has to deal with the venom of the past and Sean will play my character as a young man".
"So, if we can make it happen, I'd obviously love the chance of working with my boy.
"Sean is doing well and he's creating a career for himself.
"And my son Dylan goes to film school in the summer and makes his own movies.
"You get apprehensive, regardless of what they do.
"It's part of being a parent. But I embrace their decisions as long as they get an education. If they choose the world of film-making then I'll certainly help them."
The Irish-born actor, whose first wife, actress Cassandra Harris died aged 43 of ovarian cancer in 1991, is also about to appear as a grieving businessman following the loss of his wife in Love Is All You Need.
