Will ‘November Man’ Be the Next Must-Watch Action Franchise?
The new action thriller The November Man hasn’t even hit theaters yet, but it seems Relativity Media is extremely confident in the project, as a sequel for the upcoming movie has already been greenlit.
The film’s star Pierce Brosnan first hinted at the news while making an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, saying that, “The November Man is an iconic, tough character and I am excited to partner with Relativity to continue to bring him to life.”
The studio then released an official announcement, seemingly confirming the sequel. “The November Man is a gritty series that re-invents the spy genre with its master Pierce Brosnan by combining the best elements of James Bond and Jason Bourne while echoing the cool, sleek action movies of the ’70s,” Relativity’s President of Production Robbie Brenner said. “We are excited to launch The November Man later this month and to continue to explore Peter Devereaux’s dangerous world with Pierce over the years to come.”
The November Man stars Brosnan as Peter Deveraux, a lethal and highly skilled ex-CIA agent who’s lured out of retirement for one final mission. During his assignment, he must protect important witness, Alice Fournier (played by Olga Kurylenko). But the task makes him the target of another CIA agent, Devereaux’s own former friend and protégé, David Mason (Luke Bracey). Soon, Deveraux is left fighting for his life with no one to trust. Other cast members in the film include Eliza Taylor (The 100), Caterina Scorsone (Private Practice), Bill Smitrovich (Iron Man), and Will Patton (Falling Skies).
