NL's 'Stu' is next target for Brosnan


Former James Bond Pierce Brosnan is going back to the spy world, signing on to star in "Spy vs. Stu," a comedy for New Line Cinema (HR 11/17). Brosnan also will produce the movie though his Irish Dream production shingle.

The comedy centers on Stu, a commitment-phobe who plans to propose to his girlfriend during an island vacation. Unbeknownst to him, a handsome, debonair spy (Brosnan) is on the other end of the island. When the bored spy takes a serious liking to Stu's girl, Stu is forced to compete for the heart of his true love.
