Pierce Brosnan is playing a sinister fertility doctor in Hulu's dark new thriller False Positive. We sat down with the legendary actor to learn more about the new film.



"He's very charming and he's very reassuring and he has a wonderful bedside manner. He's a sicko. He's a complete sicko," Brosnan said of his character.
The film, directed by John Lee, follows couple Lucy and Adrian (Ilana Glazer and Justin Theroux) as they attempt to get pregnant with the help of Dr. Hindle (Brosnan). However, not everything is as it seems as Lucy begins to

suspect Dr. Hindle of evil intentions.

"There are men out there in the field, fertility doctors, who use their power grossly and they are just these malignant narcissists who have destroyed people's lives and created havoc," Brosnan said.

The film was written by both Lee and Glazer. Lee talked about working with a movie legend like Brosnan:

"Pierce is just this other larger statesman, so I think most people were the most nervous about him. And he's so professional but so thoughtful," Lee said of Brosnan.

This role in False Positive is the latest addition to Brosnan's illustrious resume that includes his work on four James Bond films and roles in films like Mrs. Doubtfire, Mama Mia, The Thomas Crown Affair and Dante's Peak.

"False Positive"

False Positive is now streaming on Hulu.

In other movie news, F9: The Fast Saga will be released in theaters today.

The ninth installment in the Fast and Furious franchise will feature Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, and Jordana Brewster reprising their roles as the cast fights to defeat assassin, and brother of Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel), Jakob (John Cena). Charlize Theron will also return as Cipher.

The Fast and Furious franchise has been massively successful and, according to CNBC, is the 7th highest-grossing movie franchise of all time.

However, there is an end in sight for the mega-successful series. Variety confirmed in 2020 that Justin Lin, director of the five of the previous films, will return to direct the last two films (10 and 11). The final film should be released sometime in 2024.
