The former James Bond star, Pierce Brosnan, dished out about his next project on his official website. The 54-year-old actor revealed that he will star in Terry Loane directed-film "Vanilla Gorilla" before he is going into the production of "The Thomas Crown Affair" sequel.

In his site, the "The Tailor of Panama" star stated that he is heading off to South Africa to make the family genre film which starts taking the principal photography in mid-February. He noted down, "Before I set sail with the second installment of TC2..... I'm off to South Africa to make 'Vanilla Gorilla,'..."

About the movie, Brosnan stated that the film is "an adventure film about an albino gorilla that has the capacity to speak through sign language. It's the story of a father and daughter who find themselves on an adventure of a lifetime, as they try to restructure their relationship after the loss of their mother / wife." It is penned by Loane, who made "Mickybo and Me", and Craig Gardner.

Further, the co-star of Maria Bello and Gerard Butler in "Butterfly on a Wheel" also confessed that following "Gorilla", he will move to the production of "The Topkapi Affair". He added, "Thomas Crown 2 is in full swing with various location scouts completed in Dubai, Berlin, and Istanbul. Paul Verhoeven is set to direct."

Brosnan was famous for his portrayal of the famous action character, Bond, in "GoldenEye", "Tomorrow Never Dies", "The World Is Not Enough" and "Die Another Day". His film credits also include "The Matador", "Laws of Attraction", "After the Sunset" and "Dante's Peak".
