Pierce Brosnan is to play another baddie when he takes the part of a kidnapper in independent thriller Butterfly on a Wheel.
Brosnan, who plays a hitman in upcoming movie The Matador, wanted some 'darker roles' after his run as James Bond.
Butterfly on a Wheel centres on a happy couple with a seemingly perfect life until their daughter is abducted, reports Variety.
Over the course of a day, Brosnan's character dismantles the family's lives with brutal efficiency.
Mike Barker will direct the film, to be produced by Icon, Irish DreamTime and Infinity Feature Canada.
A February start is scheduled, with locations in Canada and Chicago. Producers said further cast will be unveiled in the coming weeks.
