Brosnan still disappointed about
Casino Royale

PIERCE BROSNAN is still upset he wasn't called up for a
final JAMES BOND adventure in CASINO ROYALE because he
always wanted to go back and investigate the birth of 007.
Instead, DANIEL CRAIG was called in to take over the
superspy role in the prequel. Irishman Brosnan tells
website, "I always wanted to go back,
because it's the blueprint of Bond's character. "It's the one
where Fleming really painted in the details of what Bond
was about, so I was disappointed that it didn't happen."

Ironically, it was Brosnan and prospective director
QUENTIN TARANTINO who first approached Bond
producers about remaking Casino Royale.
