Pierce Brosnan has teamed with Maloof Motion Pictures to turn the Leonard Wise novel “The Big Biazarro” into a starring vehicle for himself, reports Variety.
The film will be written and directed by Vondie Curtis-Hall.
Brosnan and Irish DreamTime partner Beau St. Clair will produce along with MMP’s Phil Maloof and Andrew Jameson. MMP is financing development.
The drama is set in the high-stakes world of international gambling, and Brosnan will play an elusive veteran card player who mentors a headstrong but talented protege.
Curtis-Hall recently helmed episodes of “Sleeper Cell” and “The Shield.”
