Pierce Brosnan, The Matador

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.

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.
