Pierce Brosnan stars as the highly trained and formidable ex-CIA agent Peter Devereaux in the big screen action thriller The November Man, which hit theaters last week.
Devereaux, who has been living quietly in Switzerland, is persuaded to come out of retirement for one last mission, one that requires him to protect a valuable witness, the gorgeous Alice Fournier. As the tagline says, “A Spy is Never Out of the Game.” However, it soon becomes clear that the assignment has marked Devereaux as a target for his former friend and CIA protégé David Mason. He can trust no one, so Devereaux decides to play by his own set of rules, which can be dangerous, considering his lethal reputation.
Starring as Mason is Australian actor Luke Bracey, who appeared in G.I. Joe: Retaliation and is set to star as Johnny Utah in a new version of the cult favorite, Point Break. Former Bond girl Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace) plays Alice Fournier. The cast also features Eliza Taylor (The 100s), Caterina Scorsone (Grey’s Anatomy), Bill Smitrovich (Ted) and Will Patton (Falling Skies).
Helming the film is Roger Donaldson, who previously directed Brosnan in the memorable thriller Dante’s Peak. The screenplay was written by Michael Finch (Predators) and Karl Gajdusek, whose writing credits include the TV series Last Resort.
