Pierce Brosnan keeps it in the family

Tuesday April 16, 2013

Pierce Brosnan plans to star alongside his son on the big screen, with the pair playing the same character.

The Mamma Mia! star said that he wanted to work with Sean, 29, on the film adaptation of the thriller The Ghosts Of Belfast, set in the aftermath of the Troubles.

Pierce, 59, is expected to play a former IRA hitman in the movie, with his son taking the role of his character's younger self.

He told the Radio Times: “If we can make it happen, I'd obviously love the chance of working with my boy."

"Sean is doing well and he's creating a career for himself. And my son Dylan goes to film school in the summer and makes his own movies.”

"You get apprehensive, regardless of what they do. It's part of being a parent. But I embrace their decisions as long as they get an education."
