Pierce Brosnan is hoping to return to the role that almost cost him James Bond.

The Irish actor is in negotiations to bring back his smooth detective REMINGTON STEELE for a new movie even though the bosses of the TV series, which launched him as a star in America, once forced him to turn down 007.

Brosnan's contract forced him to turn down the chance to play Bond in THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS in the mid-1980s. He was lucky enough for the role to be offered to him again in the 1990s.

But the actor says, "I like the idea (of Remington Steele) I think a new version would do well.

"The programme had a style and glamour that's missing on TV now."
