Hopefully it holds true as I'd like to see Brosnan do one more.

It is true -- just annouced on TV news that Pierce is back. He was pushing for some time off and supposedly got it. I think it is to start filming in December ? - Casino Royale.

Great news! I love Pierce as 007.

Love to see Campbell and Brosnon back together again, I loved Goldeneye

Sean>Pierce>any other bond

I just heard this too, I can't remember where, after the US Today article, it's kind of funny that all the candidates had no interest in playing Bond and it all circled back to Pierce - oh and I also really digged Goldeneye, why oh why Casino Royale (shakes head in disgust).

Interesting information from Dench, but I wouldn't consider her to be an official source at this point. I'll also add that I think DIE ANOTHER DAY was the best Bond film since 1979, easily. So if Pierce is truly gone, he left on a high note.

Interesting, but hardly "official".

For the most part, Moonraker was the same story/villian as The Spy who Loved Me. It was just thrown out there to make money riding the aftermath of Star Wars. i think it could have been a lot better if the space scenes had a lot more work done with them.

TND and TWINE were horrible. The only thing that kept me in the theater for them was Brosnan. DAD was slightly better but not by much. Goldeneye on the other hand was a masterpiece of a Bond movie IMO. I hope they can get the guy a good script again.

Goldeneye was Brosnan's best Bond film and Tommorrow Never Dies his most underrated. The World Is Not Enough was rubbish and Die Another Day was on the path to greatness UNTIL Bond left Cuba. The film went downhill at that point and never recovered.

So, if this is indeed official, I'm glad to hear Brosnan is back and with Campbell directing, no less.

Goldeneye was indeed Brosnan's best, and one of the the best Bond films ever, containing all the right elements in a perfect mix. Tomorrow Never Dies also had all the right elements, but it went a little more towards the generic side sometimes. Still, both were good Bond films. The World Is Not Enough needed more work done to it, although I liked who the real villain ended up being.

Die Another Day was the most uninspired out of all the Bond movies. The Ice Palace was cool, but they spent too much time referencing the other Bond movies and not coming up with new material. When they did, it was something cheesy like an invisible car. And of course, it had Halle Berry's character, which, along with Denise Richards from TWINE, was one of the worst Bond girls ever.
