PIERCE BROSNAN has addressed the speculation about another

mamma mia movie.He starred as architect Sam Carmichael opposite Meryl Streep and Amanda Seyfried in the 2008 Abba-themed musical comedy based on the West End hit

There have been rumours about a follow-up but Brosnan has ruled out the idea.

He told us: "Leave them wanting more, less is more, and I don't think we could top what we did the first time. It was such a phenomenal success."

The actor can be seen as Chiron the centaur in fantasy adventure Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, now out on DVD and Blu-ray.

He added that he was enjoying trying new roles after becoming well-known as James Bond in four 007 movies.

Brosnan said: "I've always seen myself as a working actor and I will remain a working actor for as long as I'm in this business. I was trained and I was lead to believe that I could play many different roles.

"James Bond was a phenomenal chapter in my life and I'm very grateful I played that role - it's allowed me to go on and create my own movies and to be in movies like Percy Jackson.

"Hopefully I can stay at the table for as long as I can. For me now, you want to be an unexpected surprise.

"[Director] Chris [Columbus] and I worked together on Mrs Doubtfire and [Percy Jackson] is a wonderful book, very fertile ground, so I'm deeply proud to be part of it."
