He's also hoping to act with his son Sean on a mooted film, Last Man Out, a Belfast-set drama co-written by Craig Ferguson. They'd play the same character, at different ages, so wouldn't appear together. With Sean recently starring in HBO drama Generation Kill, how does he feel with his son acting now? "I hold my breath and I pray that he will come through and do well." With Brosnan guiding him, there's no reason why he can't.
Pierce Brosnan - Pierce Brosnan's Son To Play Him As A Young Man In New Thriller 25 April 2013
Pierce Brosnan's son Sean is to play the former Bond star as a young man in a new movie about a former Irish Republican Army hitman trying to make good after serving 20 years in the notorious Long Kesh prison.
The Brosnans are planning to shoot action thriller Last Man Out, based on a script by comedian-turned-U.S. chat show host Craig Ferguson, in Belfast, Northern Ireland later this year (13).
Pierce explains, "It's about the last man out of Long Kesh and the ghosts that he lives with and flashbacks to his younger life and me as a young man, so I was like, 'Sean, why not?'
"I'd known Craig, did his show and we live in the same neighbourhood and he came to me with this and I said, 'Yeah, let's have a crack at it.' Terry Loane is a Belfast director who I've wanted to work with. It's a little film."
And Sean is also set to team up with his teenage half-brother Dylan to adapt a Joyce Carol Oates short story for the screen.
The boys' proud dad adds, "Dylan is a smart lad and he's just done the adaptation. It's a 12, 15 minute film. He and his brother, my son Sean, who is a writer, producer and director are making it together... It's in the blood."

BERLIN -- Presales on a big-screen adaptation of Stuart Neville's revenge thriller novel The Twelve, penned by CBS late-night talk show host Craig Ferguson and Ted Mulkerin and starring Pierce Brosnan, will begin at the European Film Market.
U.K.-based sales and finance banner Ealing Metro will tout the taut thriller Last Man Out after boarding it on the eve of the market in Berlin. It details the story of a former IRA hitman who, released from prison after serving 20 years for murder, is haunted by the memory of his victims. He can find no peace until he takes revenge on their behalf. But buyers will have to wait to see who will star opposite Brosnan, with casting now under way.
It is to be directed by Terry Loane and produced by Ferguson, Steve Clark-Hall (Sherlock Holmes), Beau St. Clair (The Thomas Crown Affair), Rebecca Tucker and Jonathan Loughran and is scheduled to shoot at the end of 2013.
Neville's novel enjoyed positive notices from the U.K. press, with The Observer newspaper describing it as "unbearably tense, stomach-churningly frightening ... a future classic of its time."
The book has been printed in the USA by Soho Press under the title Ghosts of Belfast. It also was published in Japan (Random House), France (Rivages), and Spain (Ediciones Urano).
Among the projects ArtCastle is percolating: 38, an action thriller scripted by In America‘s Naomi Sheridan; The Ranger, a revenge thriller set during the Irish famine that will star Brendan Gleeson and be directed by PJ Dillon; the Pierce Brosnan-starrer Last Man Out, scripted by TV host/writer/director Craig Ferguson & Ted Mulkerin; and the period epic Hound Of Erin, based on the Irish mythological heroic figure Cú Chulainn.
Shore continues to be represented by Anonymous Content for management in L.A. and 42 in the UK.
This just surfaced. Not sure if it's for real or fan-made. I thought the book this was based on was called "the Ghosts of Belfast", not "The Twelve". I'm not sure I ever saw in Pierce's schedule that this was ever filmed. Another reason that makes me wonder about this poster.

I don't think the poster is official. I just looked up where it came from and I can safely say it's a fan art with fake reports from a blog. The same blogger put a still from The Matador and said it's a first look from Last Man Out, so I wouldn't believe it.
The Twelve was the US title of Ghosts Of Belfast - so of course the projected film uses neither...
This movie to the best of my knowledge was never filmed. I don't know if it's even still alive but I doubt it since he hasn't mentioned it in years. A damn shame since it was his most promising film role of the last 5 years.
This goes along with the never made Robert Capa film & the Thomas Crown sequel as most my disappointed Pierce film misses.
