Pierce Brosnan has pointed out that works on "The Topkapi Affair" script have been finished.
Those who wait for the certainty of the existence of the sequel to 1999's "The Thomas Crown Affair" should take a breath of relief by now as Pierce Brosnan has confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that the project is ready to move on.
"Thomas Crown 2, for all intents and purposes, will happen," the actor stated. "The script came in two days ago and it's good. We've announced it, we've said to the world that we're going to do it -- come hell or high water, we're going to do it."
In the same occasion, the former James Bond star also revealed that Rene Russo would not be part of the flick though.
As for the follow-up, titled "The Topkapi Affair", it is said that the flick will draw on material from both a 1964 MGM film called "Topkapi" and Eric Ambler's novel "The Light of the Day" which it was based on. Meanwhile, Brosnan is also set to produce together with Dino Conte and Beau St. Clair.
