November Man sequel with Pierce Brosnan greenlit before first film's release

Aug. 20, 2014by:

These days it's not uncommon for a film studio to greenlight a sequel depending on the opening weekend's box-office numbers. Just recently, TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES got the go-ahead as well as a release date. It looks like Relativity is feeling confident of their Bond-but-not-Bond action-spy flick, THE NOVEMBER MAN, as they've pulled a GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY and greenlit a sequel, pre-release.

Pierce Brosnan had this to say:

The November Man' is an iconic, tough character and I am excited to partner with Relativity to continue to bring him to life.

The book on which THE NOVEMBER MAN is based on has thirteen entries in its series, so they have plenty of story to work with. Our own review of the film can be found here, but it doesn't paint a pretty picture of the first film. Personally I'd be down for another JACK REACHER, but it sounds like they're aiming to capture that TAKEN audience. We'll see if Brosnan's charisma pays off for Relativity soon enough.

THE NOVEMBER MAN will be released on August 27, 2014.

I liked it. Luke Bracey was very meh and it did feel direct to DVD at times but it was solid and it was gritty without being self-consciously Bourne-esque. Also, Brosnan really is a badass in the movie, I think he was a more convincing spy in November Man than in any of his Bonds (and I do love GoldenEye). Also one of the better performances Olga Kurylenko has given.

I love Pierce, but this just screams generic

Every trailer makes this look like a shitty direct to video movie. It has every trite set piece and plot point you could think of. Actually, I am pretty sure the trailer spoils the entire movie as well.

I love Pierce, but this isn't a summer blockbuster... It's more of a movie to throw out in a dump month. I don't see this making more than 12 million...

I know this movie has been getting not-so-good reviews but I still want to support it.

Pierce is the man.

Love resourceful older action hero with brains.

I just like those typesif movies. Same goes for mid-late 30's detectives.

I heard the tracking numbers for this film aren't even 15 million for its opening 5 day weekend. How does this get a sequel without proving it will have good legs?

I hope it does well. It would be cool to see Brosnan have his own franchise at his age.
