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.
