Delivering one of the best James Bond films with "Goldeneye" twenty years ago, actor Pierce Brosnan and director Martin Campbell are now reportedly re-teaming to tackle a film adaptation of Ernest Hemingway's 1950 last full-length novel "Across the River and Into the Trees".
BAFTA winner Peter Flannery ("The Devil's Whore") and Oscar-nominee Michael Radford ("Il Postino") penned the adaptation of this story of an American officer (Brosnan) serving in Italy just after WW2.

What do you get when you team up James Bond with director Martin Campbell? Only some of the best installments of the 007 franchise, namely Goldeneye and Casino Royale. But what about when it's James Bond without the franchise? Campbell and Goldeneye's Bond, Pierce Brosnan, are set to reteam for two movies, one of them a newly announced Ernest Hemingway adaptation.

Daniel Craig’s fourth or Roger Moore’s eighth? The former of course but you get the point. The almost-realistic stylings of early Craig have given way to the full blown pantomime excess of mid-Moore (or late Connery, in fairness). Desert lairs, endless car chases, free-wheelin’ helicopters and indestructible airplanes are all very much back in vogue. The result is a largely enjoyable, extremely silly film which attempts to tie previous Craig outings together at the expense of consistency and logic. There isn’t a plot: more a succession of scenes stitched together. And it still can’t manage a decent finale! Fun but ultimately frivolous. Now who does that remind me of?
