The first trailer for the new Pierce Brosnan spy film, The November Man, has just been released. But this isn’t the type of spy film from Brosnan may be expecting. In fact, the film, directed by Roger Donaldson, looks like a more adult take on the spy genre, along the lines of The Bourne Identity and Taken, not so much the James Bond films that Brosnan is most famously known for. It looks like a lot of fun, and if the film works, it could certainly lead to a new spy series for Brosnan to star in. Check out the trailer below.
The trailer originally debuted on Fandango.
An ex-CIA operative 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.
The film is based on the novel, There Are No Spies, written by Bill Granger. It’s one of a few novels that stars Brosnan’s character in the film, Peter Devereaux. Brosnan seems to be in top form here, and the character looks to be a much darker, more violent character than his 007 counterpart. It’ll be interesting to see if audiences will be able to accept him in that role, and they can separate his cheeky, womanizing, and suave Bond character from this.
The November Man also stars Olga Kurylenko and Luke Bracey, and will open nationwide on August 27, 2014.
