Pierce Brosnan To Work In I.T.
A revenge thriller, not a computer gig

Pierce Brosnan

Just because Pierce Brosnan has signed on to star in a film called I.T. doesn’t mean you can all break out the “Have you tried turning it off and on again?” gags. But the idea of a computer technician causing trouble is at the core of the film, which Stefano Sollima is set to direct.

Brosnan is set to play successful book publisher who somehow manages to annoy a young, disgruntled I.T. consultant. Naturally, because his nemesis is tech savvy, he decides to threaten Brosnan’s life, family and income. By, we’re guessing, deleting all his bookmarks. The swine!

Dan Kay wrote the script, working from an idea by producer David T. Friendly, and it all sounds a little bit like an updated version of The Net with Brosnan in the Sandra Bullock role (only less skilled). We sort of wish they'd cast Chris O’Dowd or Richard Ayoade as the vengeful compu-type, but somehow we don’t see that happening.

Sollima last made Italian thriller A.C.A.B.: All Cops Are Bastards and worked on the SkyItalia miniseries Gomorra. Brosnan most recently cropped up in an alien invasion movie that shall remain nameless for fear of spoilers, and will be seen in A Long Way Down (out here March 7, 2014) and November Man.
