Pierce Brosnan keeping busy - three new movies in the works

Pierce Brosnan's James Bond days may be way behind him, but he's keeping busy - and evidently he can still take on roles that make him the envy of men everywhere.

For one thing, Brosnan's upcoming movie 'How to Make Love like an Englishman' will see him get up close and personal with two of the most desired leading ladies in Hollywood: Salma Hayek and Jessica Alba.

Deadline report that Hayek has just signed on to the "sexually charged romantic comedy" set to be directed by Tom Vaughan ('Starter for 10,' 'What Happens in Vegas.')

Brosnan's company Irish Dreamtime will co-produce the film with Palmstar Media Capital, Southpaw Entertainment, and Envision.

'How to Make Love like an Englishman' will reportedly see Brosnan (who is of course Irish, but let's not split hairs) in the lead role of "a Cambridge University prof who finds a woman who is his ideal match (Hayek), forcing him to reevaluate his life of hedonistic excess. This comes after he impregnates her grad student stepsister (Alba)."

Not bad for a 60 year old...

This, of course, will not be the first time Brosnan has shared scenes (often at an extremely close proximity) with Hayek, as the two co-starred in Brett Ratner's sun-kissed caper comedy 'After the Sunset' back in 2004.

Nor is this the only upcoming Brosnan movie that Deadline have reported on today, as they also broke the news that he will be joining the cast of Millennium Films thriller 'Survivor' alongside Milla Jovovich, Angela Bassett and Emma Thompson, for director James McTeigue ('V for Vendetta,' 'Ninja Assassin.')

From the sound of things, 'Survivor' is very much a Milla Jovovich vehicle, casting her as a US anti-terrorist agent stationed in London, wrongly accused of crimes and forced to go on the run to clear her name. Sounds a bit Bourne, which is no bad thing; no mention of what Brosnan's role will be, but I'm guessing stiff upper-lipped authority figure.

As if all that wasn't enough, Brosnan has also been announced to star in 'I.T.', a revenge movie in which he will portray "a successful book publisher who finds himself pitted against a young disgruntled I.T. consultant who is tech savvy and uses that to threaten the author's family and livelihood." The film is from Voltage Pictures and director Stefano Sollima.

He may be around retirement age, but evidently the former 007 has no plans of slowing down just yet - and that's no bad thing.

Which upcoming Pierce Brosnan movie are you most looking forward to? Which of his post-Bond movies have you most enjoyed? Let us know in the comments.

Ben Bussey is an editor of horror website Brutal As Hell, and holds an MA in Cult Film & TV from Brunel University. 'Goldeneye' was the first Bond movie he saw at the cinema, and he hasn't missed one on the big screen since - it remains one of his favourites in the series.
