Brosnan spying again in 'The November Man'

By JOHN DeFORE
The Hollywood Reporter

Pierce Brosnan returns to the spy genre in Roger Donaldson's “The November Man.”

LOS ANGELES — Onetime 007 Pierce Brosnan embraces a darker take on spycraft in Roger Donaldson's “The November Man,” playing a former CIA agent whose autumnal nickname acknowledges his tendency to leave few alive when he passes through a town. A familiar string of dark secrets, shifting allegiances and (wo)man-who-knew-too-much pursuit propels the storyline (adapted from one in a series of Bill Granger novels), giving Brosnan the opportunity to prove his cool remains intact, sans tux and gadgets. “November Man” won't do anything like Bond's box office, but will satisfy the actor's fans and moviegoers biding their time until the next top-shelf le Carre-style thriller.
