Pierce Brosnan and his son Sean

It's a family affair. This week we've learned that for the first time, Irish heartthrob Pierce Brosnan (best known for his role as secret agent James Bond) will team up with his actor son Sean for the big screen.

Pierce, 57, will star in big-budget movie 'Bonded' alongside the 26-year-old. The duo will play police officers in pursuit of a Mexican teenager smuggled into the US as a sweatshop worker.

Mo Ramchandani, a childhood friend of Brosnan junior, will direct the actors, who are also the executive producers of the film.

Pierce and Sean always said that they would find a project to work on together and this movie was seen as ideal. They have lots of screen time together, so it's going to be a very special film for both of them, a source told the press.
