THE NOVEMBER MAN 2 Already in Development Ahead of the First Film’s August 27th Release

     August 20, 2014


I’ve got to admit, I didn’t think The November Man was anything special.  Sure, it’s based on some popular source material, but the film is getting a late August release and the trailer is a little hokey, too.  Regardless, the folks at Relativity Studios think they’ve got something good here because the studio just announced that it’s starting development on the sequel even before the first film comes out on August 27th.

The November Man stars Pierce Brosnan as Peter Devereaux, a former CIA agent who gives up his quiet life in Switzerland for one last mission.  Hit the jump for more on Relativity’s plan to move forward with The November Man 2.

Here’s what Robbie Brenner, Relativity’s President of Production, had to say about the upcoming film:

“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.  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.”

Brosnan added:

“THE NOVEMBER MAN is an iconic, tough character and I am excited to partner with Relativity to continue to bring him to life.”

Here’s the official synopsis for The November Man:

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.

    Sounds like he wants to be Daniel Craig…

      Pierce Brosnan is much better than Daniel Craig, but one has to watch his good movies like “The Ghost Writer” or “The Tailor of Panama” to see that.It´s truly a shame he has to work on shitty movies like this one.

    …And it’s rocking a big fat 0% on RT.

    • hazzin

      To be fair it has only 5 reviews so far. It will probably garner some positive reviews down the road, though based on the trailer I doubt it will rise above 20%.

      • Matt

        I’m thinking it’ll be around 8%

  • Strange

    Going into pre-pro and going into production are two very different things.

    • Doctor Strange

      This movie is going to make nothing at the box office, so this won’t be getting a sequel. However, this isn’t any different from any other possible franchise starters that want to set the stage to sequels later on.

  • CaptainCarl

    It’s currently sitting at 0% on Rottentomatoes. That’s a ballzy business strategy.

  • mattritchey

    “….for one last mission.” Hence the sequel. Gee, I wonder if Pierce will make it out of all the danger he’ll be in?

    • Kyle Chandler

      “…for one last mission…until he realized liam neeson made some bank on a sequel to a movie with a similar one-off premise”

  • Jamie Teller

    I’m betting this won’t happen. Watch us never hear anything about it again.

  • appolox

    This is just plain stupid.

  • Kyle Chandler

    So what you’re telling me is that he wasn’t quite finished playing bond…

  • hazzin

    More like: THE NOVEMBER MAN is a preteding-to-be-gritty series that is a completely unnecessary addition to the spy genre with its master Pierce Brosnan by combining the most clichéd elements of James Bond and Jason Bourne while giving a bad reputation to not only action movies of the 70s, but the cinema as a whole.

    looks extremely bland, and really, who can take any movie seriously where the lead walks in slow motion away from explosions
