Roger Donaldson (‘The Bank Job’) is set to direct Pierce Brosnan (‘The Ghost Writer’) and Dominic Cooper (‘The Devil’s Double’) in the espionage action-thriller ‘November Man.’
Based on the book ‘There Are No Spies’ by Bill Granger, ‘November Man’ is the first film from a series of beloved espionage novels and is being developed as a franchise opportunity.
The film 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.
Filming is scheduled to kick off in October on location in Berlin with Donaldson helming from a screenplay by Michael Finch (‘Predators’) and Karl Gajdusek (‘Trespass’).
‘November Man’ is the first film in a new multi-picture financing and distribution deal that Brosnan’s production company Irish DreamTime has signed with The Solution Entertainment Group.
