It’s a James Bond reunion – of sorts. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ex-007 Pierce Brosnan and Goldeneye director Martin Campbell are set to make a new film together, over twenty years since their Bond collaboration. The title? Across the River and Into the Trees; based on the 1950 book of the same name by Ernest Hemingway, the plot sets our protagonist in Venice at the end of the second World War. The grizzled American colonel falls in love with a younger Italian woman; he is revitalised by the encounter, even though the experience only occurs over a handful of hours.
We’re thinking this could be Brosnan’s own Before Sunrise, a walk-and-talk love affair kinda thing. However, it actually won’t be his and Campbell’s first collaboration since Goldeneye; the two are already in the middle of shooting The Foreigner, a revenge drama that will also star Jackie Chan. Also, we can totally see Across the River and Into the Trees receiving a snip-job of that title before it comes out: simply Across the River, perhaps?
