Pierce Brosnan will star in Susanne Bier’s upcoming light-hearted romance movie All You Need Is Love. Bier, who won an Oscar for In a Better World and is known more for her stark family melodramas, told the Italian newspaper La Repubblica that All You Need Is Love is “a tender story with a much lighter atmosphere than my previous works: Enough with conflicts.” 24 Frames reports that Bier wrote Brosnan’s role with the actor in mind. Oddly, La Repubblica reports that the film will center on a Danish family, and Brosnan doesn’t speak the language. However, it’s possible that movie is bilingual or that the Danish family will simply speak English.
I’ve found Brosnan to be a far more exciting actor ever since he broke free of James Bond. Those films gave his profile a boost and he did a fine job, but he’s done far more memorable work since then in movies like The Matador, Seraphim Falls, and The Ghost Writer. He recently joined the comedy I Don’t Know How She Does It and will next be seen in the religious comedy Salvation Boulevard.
