Olga Kurylenko (Oblivion), Luke Bracey (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) and Bill Smitrovich (Iron Man) are set to join Pierce Brosnan in the espionage action-thriller November Man, directed by Roger Donaldson (The Bank Job). The announcement was made by producers Beau St. Clair of Irish Dreamtime and Sriram Das of Das Films. Written by Michael Finch (Predators) and Karl Gajdusek (Oblivion), the script was developed from Bill Granger’s “There Are No Spies,” the seventh book in Granger’s 13-part “November Man” series.
With shooting set to start in Europe on May 20th, November Man tells the story of an ex-CIA operative (Brosnan) who finds himself pitted against his former pupil (Bracey) in a race to find a woman hiding from her past (Kurylenko) who holds the key to an international conspiracy. November Man is financed by Merced Media Partners, Envision Entertainment Corporation and PalmStar Media Capital. Executive Producers include Merceds Raj Singh and Stuart Brown, PalmStars Kevin Frakes, Envision’s Grant Cramer, Remington Chase and Stepan Martirosyan, and Myles Nestel and Lisa Wilson of The Solution.
Financing for November Man was arranged by PalmStar’s Kevin Frakes and Envision’s Grant Cramer. The Solution is handling international rights and CAA represents the U.S. distribution rights.
“Pierce and I couldn’t be happier with the cast we’ve put together on a project that’s been a true labor of love,” producer Beau St. Clair said. “We’re excited to reintroduce Pierce to the spy game, especially with such great talent surrounding him.”
“Brosnan and Bracey are a great match as the disillusioned ex-agent and his determined protégé,” added producer Sriram Das. “I’m thrilled to be working with such a talented cast to introduce the ‘November Man’ franchise to audiences around the world.”
