Brosnan Grateful For Second Wife Keely
source ; www.contacmusic.com
PIERCE BROSNAN has heaped praise on his wife KEELY for encouraging him to continue to mourn his late spouse CASSIE, who died of cancer.
The GoldenEye star gave up his career to nurse his first wife, Australian actress Cassandra Harris, as she fought ovarian cancer - and he was devastated when she finally succumbed to the disease in 1991.
And the actor admits he was lucky to find love again with writer Keely Shaye Smith, who he married in 2001, because she understands his profound feelings for Harris.
Brosnan explains, "We talk about her (Harris). I am blessed with my wife, Keely, who has always been remarkably kind and compassionate. Cassie is remembered with great love, remembered dearly. Keely has always accommodated that, and we have now been together 17 years. You know, I have the luck of the Irish. I've had great luck in finding a partner.
"Cancer is a hard one to live with. To see someone suffer for four years, when the moment comes it's a relief that the suffering has gone. It's very hard to talk about death with somebody, but one day she said, 'It doesn't look so good for me.' We held each other and wept and had a cup of tea. A cup of tea always sorts things out, and then you sort out your priorities
Brosnan & son Dylan
Meet Brosnan. Dylan Brosnan. The already handsome son of Pierce Brosnan turns 13 on Wednesday. Pierce Brosnan, father of five, lost his first wife — Australian actress Cassandra Harris — to ovarian cancer in 1991. They had three children (one together and he adopted Cassandra’s two children from a previous marriage). Pierce has two children with wife Keely Shaye Smith, Dylan and his brother Paris.

Brosnan on set "Remember me"
Fans rave about Brosnan as Pattinson hides in trailer
Irish star wins over new fans with smooth moves!
Irish star Pierce Brosnan was a huge hit with fans in New York today as he took time out to pose for photographs and sign autographs.
Brosnan, who is filming "Remember Me," in New York arrived back on the set yesterday after a vacation in Hawaii.
He plays the father to "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson in the film which shows how the family tries to come to terms with the death of Pattinson's brother.
There was tight security in the Irish stronghold of Maspeth in Queens as the burial scenes were filmed in Mount Olivet cemetery.
However, Brosnan waved away security and came out to visit with the fans who had gathered there.
"You're all here for me," he joked as little Diane Morrisey rushed forward to have her picture taken.
Morrissey said she was thrilled to see Brosnan and was also hoping to see Brosnan's co-star Pattinson.
However, there was no sign of Pattinson who stayed inside his trailer.
Pattinson has been under virtual siege by female fans in New York but Brosnan, who was a huge hit in the Bond movies, takes it all in his stride.
Rita Malone from County Cork was there with her daughter Eilish and she said Brosnan was a proper gentleman.
"We went downtown yesterday to see him and he was just great, so he was," she said.
"He spent about 15 minutes chatting to the fans and posing for the pictures with the children.
"It's so nice to see that he's still a true Irish gentleman."
Dublin woman Bernice Hughes was similarly impressed.
"He might be from County Meath," she said, referring to the inter-county football rivalry, "but he's a total gentleman."
"He came out to chat to everyone and asked them what they were doing here.
"It's so refreshing to see someone so comfortable with their fame and being so nice."

Schools out for summer and I am en route to Hawaii for a brief visit. I will be starting a new film “Remember Me” with the young and talented Robert Pattinson (Twilight) on location in New York this summer. Directed by Allen Coulter and written by Will Fetters and Jenny Lumet, Remember Me is a tale of two lovers whose relationship is threatened as they try to cope with their respective family tragedies. I will be playing Robert’s father, while Lena Olin has been cast as his mother. Other cast members include Chris Cooper and Emilie de Ravin.
I recently wrapped production on Percy Jackson, based on the popular book series by Rick Riordan. The film, directed by my friend Chris Columbus, with whom I worked on Mrs. Doubtfire, centers on a teenage boy who discovers he's the descendant of a Greek god. Percy Jackson then sets out on the adventure of a lifetime to settle an on-going battle between the gods. Cast members include Uma Thurman, Sean Bean, Rosario Dawson, Catherine Keener, Logan Lerman, Kevin McKidd, Melina Kanakerides, Brandon T. Jackson, Alexandra Daddario and yours truly.
In April I completed shooting The Ghost with Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Roman Polanski. This is the first contemporary thriller he has directed and produced in more than twenty years. Based on the book of the same name by best-selling author Robert Harris, The Ghost details the story of a former British Prime Minister and his anonymous ghostwriter who is drawn into a political and sexual conspiracy. The talented cast includes Ewan McGregor, Tom Wilkinson, Kim Cattrall, Timothy Hutton, Jim Belushi, Robert Pugh, and Olivia Williams.
Last summer my company Irish DreamTime produced The Greatest, starring Susan Sarandon, Carey Mulligan, Aaron Johnson, Johnny Simmons, Zoe Kravitz, and myself, which was well received at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival. First time writer/director Shana Feste's richly evocative script results in a compelling drama that is both heartwarming and heartbreaking. The Hollywood Reporter asserts The Greatest "pulls off a stunning fete" and "...performances are daring and brilliantly shaded." The Greatest was purchased by Senator Entertainment and will be released this fall.
Wishing you a wonderful summer.
See you at the movies.
Love and only love,

Brosnan @ "White House"
Pierce Brosnan and his wife Keely Shaye-Smith were snapped leaving the West Wing of the White House shortly before noon today after receiving their first tour of the White House and meeting with staff to discuss the preservation of whales, reports Politico.
Brosnan, global ambassador of whale conservation campaigns for the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), said he didn't meet President Barack Obama but was impressed by his first glimpse inside the White House. "I've always viewed it from afar so to be in the hallowed halls was ... truly an honor,” he said.

Crisis hits "Heaven and earth"
source ; contactmusic.com
Hollywood actor PIERCE BROSNAN is the latest celebrity feeling the effects of the global economic crisis - his upcoming big-screen outing has reportedly been delayed due to a lack of funds.
The former James Bond star signed up to play Lord Charles Somerset in Heaven and Earth, a $20 million (£14 million) biopic of James Miranda Barry - a woman doctor who masqueraded as a man to follow a medical career.
Filming was due to start on the big budget movie last Thursday (12Feb09) with a release date planned for later this year (09).
But the economic crisis has put paid to those plans - with U.K. newspaper The Independent reporting an unidentified British backer has failed to provide promised funds in time, forcing filming to be delayed

Work on Brosnan film in Cape grinds to a halt
By Natasha Joseph
The filming of a major movie starring former James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan is "on ice" for at least a month due to reported "cash-flow problems".
"Furious" crew members don't believe they will be paid and are not certain that the filming of the romantic epic Heaven and Earth in Cape Town will ever get off the ground.
They claim the producers have already racked up enormous debts.
But the movie's executive producer says filming is to resume in about six weeks and although R10-million has been invested in the project so far, it is "a gross exaggeration" to describe this as debt
A massive set erected in Strandfontein will have to be dismantled
Crew members say everything was in place for filming to start late last week, but they were told on Friday that work on the film would have to be halted while producers tried to come up with funding to clear their debts and get the cameras rolling.
A massive set erected in Strandfontein will have to be dismantled this week because another film is due to be shot there
. Heaven and Earth is a joint project of British-based production company Focus Films and Spier Films, which has offices in London and Cape Town.
According to a synopsis posted on Focus Films's website, the movie tells the story of army surgeon Dr James Miranda Barry, whose skills took the British garrison at the Cape by storm during the early 19th century.
Barry was actually a woman masquerading as a man, and was forced to assume the disguise because women were not allowed to enter the medical world as surgeons.
She was rumoured to be the lover of Cape Governor Lord Charles Somerset.
According to a disgruntled crew member, who asked to remain anonymous, British and Australian crew members flew into Cape Town from the beginning of December and were "guaranteed two weeks' work".
"We were told they were waiting to sign lead actors before the money would be green-lighted."
After two weeks, she said, producers told the crew that the project had been "green-lit" and filming would start in February
Filming of Cape drama delayed by cash crisis
By Bronwynne Jooste
A funding crisis is threatening to scupper one of the biggest film projects being undertaken in Cape Town this year - Heaven and Earth, starring Hollywood star Pierce Brosnan.
Producers of the multi-million- rand feature film, based on the life of the Cape Colony's medical inspector James Barry, are putting their faith in bridging finance while they wait for promised funds to arrive.
Pre-production has already started in the city, with significant expenses already incurred.
The finance promised by a backer from Britain has been delayed several times.
Brosnan has already arrived in the city to start shooting. He plays Cape governor Lord Charles Somerset, believed to have been Barry's lover.
The drama tells of a secret love affair between Somerset and James Miranda Barry, who was a woman posing as a man. Some of the film is set to be shot at The Castle.
Filming was scheduled to start on Thursday, but was delayed on account of the cashflow problems.
It is now scheduled to start tomorrow, but it is not clear whether funding will come through.
The film is being produced by British production company Focus Films. It approached Spier Films, which has offices both in Cape Town and London, to be the official South African co-producer but the deal will only become official once all legal and financial documentation is signed.
Until then, Focus Films will be the lead producer, and has already pumped millions into the project since pre-production started in December.
Spier Films also produced the award-winning musical, U-Carmen eKhayelitsha.
Michael Auret, the joint managing director of Spier Films, said although Focus Films had been sourcing bridging finance, they had "met all their financial obligations" to this point.
"Prior to the closing of the financial agreements, Focus Films have been responsible for the pre-production of the film and have to date invested more than R10-million on preparing this wonderful project."
He said they expected legal agreements to be signed before shooting was scheduled to start on Sunday, although pre-production has already begun.
Auret said a range of factors was holding up the process.
These included negotiations with lawyers, adding that it was "not unusual" for these agreements to be finalised long after shooting had commenced.
"The legal agreements have not closed as yet, but we believe this will happen soon and that shooting will start as scheduled.
"Focus Films have been meeting their financial obligations in the pre-production period, as far as we are aware, and will continue to do so via bridging loans until the legal agreements are finalised and the rest of the finance flows into the production."
David Pupkewitz, the film's executive producer with Focus Films, was unavailable for comment but the Focus Films website states that Heaven and Earth has a $15m budget

"press release" Heaven and Earth
source ; http://www.free-press-release.com/
South Africa, Republic of (Press Release) February 12, 2009 -- It is therefore no surprise that 2009 promises to be a watershed year for the Cape Film Industry. We cannot help but be excited as major deals are being put together to bring 7 major film productions including a number of Bollywood productions to Cape Town within the first quarter of 2009, and another animated feature film is also being scheduled to go into production in early 2009.
‘The Human Factor’ a movie about South Africa winning the Rugby World Cup in 1995 will commence production soon, and will be directed by Oscar winner Clint Eastwood, with international film stars Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon. It is based on the book ‘The Human Factor: Nelson Mandela and the Game that changed the world’.
‘Heaven and Earth’ will feature Pierce Brosnan, playing Lord Charles Somerset, the Cape’s first governor. The Castle will be used as one of the locations for the shoot.
South Africa’s first full length CGI film, Lion of Judah, was also produced in Cape Town and is set for international release later in year. Already negotiations are underway for another CGI animated film and announcements will follow shortly.
In a recent frank interview with the Commissioner of the CFC, Laurence Mitchell, he clearly sounded optimistic in stating that “Cape Town and the Western Cape is set to become a global film industry destination and that 2009 will be a crucial year during which we will have to up our game as the rest of the world would have taken notice”.
“We have often been told that we are too ambitious and lack the necessary skills and infrastructure. However it has now become apparent that indeed we have the capacity to become this global film destination/ industry.

Sexiest Male 2009
source ; http://www.rna-uk.org/
British actor Richard Armitage has leapt from last year's 4th place to this year topping the ratings in the Romantic Novelists' Association 2009 Valentine's poll, to take the title of Sexiest Thing on Two Legs, beating top Hollywood stars to the number one spot.
Johnny Depp, who topped last year's poll, was pushed firmly into second place, with Hugh Jackman and George Clooney mere also-rans. "Richard Armitage took 20% of the vote, more than double the count of any other male on the list," said the RNA pollster. "He was a clear winner from the off."
The RNA is not alone in admiration of the actor, as numerous online Richard Armitage fan sites will testify. The ardency began with North and South, grew by leaps and bounds with his appearance as the leather-clad baddie in Robin Hood, and shows no sign of diminishing as Spooks takes to the airwaves.
"It's a coup for Britain," said one starstruck writer, "not just for sexy Richard."
According to romantic novelists, the sexiest male celebrities of 2009 are:
