Pierce Brosnan is joining the cast of the Owen Wilson action-drama The Coup, Variety reports. Wilson stars as an American man raising his family in a country in Southeast Asia, where he becomes enmeshed in a coup. It's not clear yet who exactly Brosnan will play, but fingers crossed for the friendly fixer-guy who promises to usher Wilson's family out of the country — except he turns out to be one of the bad guys, and now they're even more stuck. Just a guess!
