    ‘The November Man’ - Brosnan re-cast in familiar assassin spy role

    Former James Bond 007 actor Pierce Brosnan returns to the world of professional assassins in this film based off the bestselling “November Man” book series by Bill Granger.  In “The November Man” Brosnan plays Peter Devereaux, an ex-CIA agent who earned the nickname of the movie’s title for always leaving an unmistakable path of death and destruction behind him.  Brosnan’s Devereaux is forced out of retirement and back into the field to help save an undercover agent and secure intelligence information. Directed by Roger Donaldson (“No Way Out” in 1987), “The November Man” is an espionage thriller that could have been ripped straight off of the front page of today’s newspapers.
