I may not be known for my psychic abilities, but I feel confident that I can magically work out exactly how the pitch meeting for Pierce Brosnan’s new action-thriller, The November Man, went down. There were probably a few execs sitting around a table, when one remarked that they had just watched Mamma Mia and was now wondering how they were going to afford the therapy needed to get over Pierce Brosnan’s horribly off key singing.
And this would be when the proverbial light bulb appeared above another’s head and he blurted out, cream cheese croissant crumbs flying everywhere, that before destroying ear drums Pierce Brosnan was James Bond for like, 10 years, surely he had acquired – to borrow a term from another movie that in no way whatsoever influenced this movie, totally – a particular set of skills? Skills that could sell a movie?
And just like that there were smiles around the table and lots of hand shaking and back slapping, and somebody remembered then to get a writer and director and make a movie, the first trailer for which you can view down below.
Code named ‘The November Man,’ Peter Devereaux (Pierce Brosnan) is a lethal and highly trained ex-CIA agent, who has been enjoying a quiet life in Switzerland. When Devereaux is lured out of retirement for one last mission, he must protect valuable witness, Alice Fournier, (Olga Kurylenko). He soon uncovers this assignment marks him a target of his former friend and CIA protégé David Mason (Luke Bracey). With growing suspicions of a mole in the agency, there is no one Devereaux can trust, no rules and no holds barred.
The November Man also stars Luke Bracey, Olga Kurylenko, Eliza Taylor, Caterina Scorsone, Bill Smitrovich and Will Patton, and is scheduled for release on August 27, 2014.
