Mamma Mia! Brosnan To Sing With Streep.

Filed under: Uncategorized — enews @ 4:39 am

Mamma Mia! Brosnan To Sing With Streep…. From Bond to Abba former James Bond star Pierce Brosnan will be showing off his singing skills when he teams up with Meryl Streep for the big screen adaptation of hit musical Mamma Mia! Brosnan sang a few Irish standards in the independent film Evelyn and also crooned onstage early in his career.

But now The Thomas Crown Affair star will play Sam, one of the three men summoned to a Greek island by a young woman who believes one of them is her father, in the new film.

Brosnan claims the opportunity to sing Abba standards such as S.O.S. – a duet with Streep – was irresistible.

He explains, “I said yes right away because it meant working with Meryl Streep.

“Secondly, I saw the show with my family in London, and found it just so wonderfully happy and joyful, and so pitched in time forever in the 1970s.

“What a kick in the pants to be able to go off and spend some time with Meryl on some Greek island, singing Abba songs!” Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson will serve as producers of the film project, along with former Abba members Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus.
