- Actor/Producer Pierce Brosnan & Producer Beau St. Clair Q&A Following “The Thomas Crown Affair”
Stars: Pierce Brosnan, Rene Russo, Denis Leary
Director: John McTiernan
Running Time: 1 hr. 57 min.
Golden Globe nominated actor Pierce Brosnan is one of a growing group of A-List stars that actively develop and produce their own material rather than simply wait to see what agents and studios offer them. With producing partner Beau St. Clair his production company Irish DreamTime has created an evocative mix of personal passion projects like critically acclaimed independent feature Evelyn and mainstream, high profile films like The Thomas Crown Affair.
Generally speaking, most remakes end up as disappointingly watered-down affairs simply because the elements that made the original film so memorable prove difficult to replicate, let alone improve on. The Thomas Crown Affair is a welcome exception with many critics proclaiming the 1999 version superior to the 1968 original thanks to the combination of ideal casting, a witty script by Leslie Dixon & Kurt Wimmer and deft direction by action specialist John McTiernan. This version of ‘Affair’ is a sophisticated caper film with a sexy cat and mouse game at its core. Audiences obviously agreed with a worldwide box office of over $100,000,000 and a sequel currently in development.
