Brosnan and Cooper to lead spy thriller. 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.
