Pierce Brosnan will be working for the government again in a new action movie.

The actor, who starred as James Bond in four films between 1995 and 2002, will play a "heroic government operative" in The Coup, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Pierce, 58, will be joining Owen Wilson, who will play a man who has to protect his family when they are caught up in a violent coup in Asia.

Producer Steve Alexander said they were "thrilled" to have the star on board.

He added: "Having Pierce step into the role of a mysterious and ultimately heroic government operative is the perfect compliment to Owen's everyman dilemma."

The thriller will be directed by John Erick Dowdle, who penned the script with his brother Drew Dowdle.
