It was announced today that Pierce Brosnan and Dominic Cooper have been set to star in the espionage action-thriller November Man. The film is based on Bill Granger’s novel There Are No Spies and “tells the tale of an ex-CIA operative who is brought back in on a very personal mission and finds himself pitted against his former pupil in a deadly game involving high level CIA officials and the Russian president-elect.” Production is set to begin in October in Berlin, with Roger Donaldson (The Bank Job) onboard to direct from a script by Michael Finch (Predators) and Karl Gajdusek (Tresspass).
Cooper has had a string of high profile roles as of late, as he starred as Howard Stark in last year’s Captain America: The First Avenger and turned heads with his stellar performance in The Devils Double. He’ll be seen this summer in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Hit the jump to read the full press release regarding November Man.
