August 26, 2001

LONDON (AP) _ Despite rumors to the contrary, Pierce Brosnan’s license to kill will be renewed.

Eon Productions, which makes the 007 films, on Friday denied reports that it was looking to replace Brosnan in the role of James Bond.

A report in the British press this week said Scottish actor Gerard Butler had been promised the role whenever Brosnan gave it up.

Brosnan has starred in three Bond films, most recently ``The World Is Not Enough.″ The title of the next film, due to start production early next year, has not been announced.
