Quentin Tarantino and Pierce Brosnan once got smashed on apple martinis and talked about making a James Bond movie together. In a new interview with Esquire UK, Brosnan dished the dirt on the 007 movie that never happened.

The conversation took place circa 2004, he explained. "It was after Kill Bill Vol. 2, and [Tarantino] wanted to meet me. I went up into Hollywood one day, from the beach, and I met him at the Four Seasons." Brosnan then detailed how, despite his own punctuality, Tarantino was delayed by press junkets, so he stayed in the bar and necked a few drinks.

"Eventually [Tarantino] came down, and he started ordering apple martinis. We were fairly snockered" — yes, snockered — "I was fairly snockered. He was pounding the table, saying, ‘You are the best James Bond! I wanna do James Bond with you!’ and it was very close quarters in the restaurant. I said, ‘Quentin, please, calm down, calm down.’ But, you don’t tell Quentin Tarantino to calm down."

Brosnan continued, "Anyway, he wanted to do James Bond. I went back to the shop and told them, but it wasn’t meant to be. No Quentin Tarantino for James Bond. What a shame. That would be a good one to watch."
