Trivia:

Friends with Pierce Brosnan, who wanted Ratner to direct an unspecified 007 film (from the time period involved, the film in question was almost certainly Die Another Day (2002)), but the Broccolis immediately told Brosnan they did not like Ratner's films and would not consider him to ever direct a James Bond film. Brosnan took on a co-lead role in Ratner's project After the Sunset (2004) instead. See more »
