Pierce BrosnanCould a 'Remington Steele 2.0' be in the future? Maybe.

Pierce Brosnan is developing a new series with Sony Pictures TV about "an international operative and problem solver for hire," according to The Hollywood Reporter. Sound a little similar to the former thief-turned-private detective?

Though the former James Bond will most likely not play the main character, he will appear in the show. This would be Brosnan's first regular TV role since 'Remington Steele,' which ran from 1982 to 1987.
