When Dalton’s second film as Bond, “License to Kill”, performed poorly at the box office in 1989, the producers turned back to Brosnan, who was now free of difficult contractual obligations. bear by NBC. Although he did bring the series back to commercial prominence, the films, aside from “Goldeneye,” still became the most mechanical entries in the series. Brosnan knew this and tried to make amends with “Die Another Day” in 2002, which opened with Bond being arrested and tortured in North Korea. Alas, after a strong opening scene, the film quickly became the dumbest entry in the series since “Moonraker”. So if Brosnan isn’t invested in the Bond franchise’s post-Daniel Craig future, he’s more than getting his apathy.
GQ’s Alex Pappademas learned this recently when he sat down a conversation with Brosnan and his two alarmingly handsome sons. It’s a long-standing tradition to ask old Bonds who should play the new Bond, and 007 veterans are often humorous enough when the imperative question comes up.
According to Pappademas, Brosnan, after explicitly stating that he doesn’t care who takes over from Walther PPK, most of ventured into commenting on the end of Craig’s five-movie reign.
“I watched the last one,” he said, “and I watched Skyfall. I love Skyfall. I’m not sure about the last one.” Pause. “Daniel always gives his best. Very brave, very strong. But …” he said. Thoughts are unfinished.
