Former James Bond lead actor Pierce Brosnan is all set to star in sci-fi thriller ‘Youth’. Brett Marty will make his directorial debut with the movie which is based on his 2016 short of the same name.
Brosnan became the fifth actor to play the secret agent James Bond in the Eon Productions film series, starring in four films from 1995 to 2002 (GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, The World Is Not Enough and Die Another Day).
The upcoming film adaptation is co-written by Marty, Josh Izenberg, and Amelia Whitcomb. It is bankrolled by Jib Polhemus, Paul Schiff, and Martin Brennan.
The movie is set in the future not far from now, where “Renewal” has become the world’s hottest (and most expensive) commodity — a procedure to rewind your body’s biological clock back to its prime, reported Deadline.
Highland Film Group is handling international rights, while CAA Media Finance oversees domestic. Sales will launch at next month’s Marche du Film Online.
Meanwhile, Brosnan is slated to play the King in Sony’s Camila Cabello-led Cinderella adaptation. He’ll next be seen in the Netflix film ‘Eurovision’, A24’s ‘False Positive’, and Renny Harlin’s ‘The Misfits’.
