Pierce Brosnan, The Matador

“Written by Craig Ferguson.” There’s a credit you don’t see so often these days, though he has crafted scripts before, working on the likes of The Big Tease and Saving Grace. But while he’s largely penned comedy in the past, Ferguson has switched tracks into thriller territory for Last Man Out, which has Pierce Brosnan attached to star.

Adapted by Ferguson and Ted Mulkerin from Stuart Neville’s revenge-thriller tome The Twelve, Last Man Out follows a former IRA hit man who is released from prison after 20 years.

Haunted by his crime and the memory of the people he killed, he decides he can find no peace until he brings down vengeance on the people who ordered those murders on behalf of the victims. What is it with assassins growing consciences these days?

Terry Loan is cranking the cameras, although while the project is being sold at Berlin’s film market, there’s still the small matter of rounding up the rest of the cast ready for a shoot at the end of the year. But now we really hope this means Ferguson gets to interview himself about the film on The Late Late Show…

I love a bit of Brosnan, so its great to see him back in a leading role after some recent supporting roles. I thought the TV show Bag of Bones that he did recent was ace! More
