November Man (Presumably 2014)

Postby John P. Drake » Thu Jun 13, 2013 9:44 pm

It was long before when Pierce Brosnan, one of the greatest 007 actors, revealed that he would like to make a movie centered on Bill Granger's spy franchise, November Man, and he acquired the rights to make films based on the franchise in 2006, owned by his Irish Dream Time Productions he formed back in the 1990s with Beau St. Clair. In 2012, he finally announced that he will be making his November Man movie sooner than later, which will be based on Granger's seventh novel There Are No Spies that he wrote in 1987. It was reported that Dominic Cooper might have joined the project to co-star alongside Brosnan but walked away shortly afterwards for unknown reasons. It was also reported that Roger Donaldson will be directing the action thriller, who is close friends with Brosnan himself, and previously worked with him in Dante's Peak. In 2013, Brosnan revealed that Olga Kurylenko will be playing the leading lady in the movie, while Luke Bracey will be playing one of the antagonists and Bill Smitrovich will be playing the head of CIA. The plot shows that a retired CIA agent, Peter Devereaux (codename: November Man) is forced to come back for one more mission where he finds himself up against a former protege. Currently, November Man is filming in Eastern Europe, mainly Serbia. Let's hope this movie puts Brosnan's GoldenEye into shame, because he deserves the best. No specific release date is given but speculation say it will be released in 2014.

Favorite Bond Movie: Dr. No, From Russia With Love, Goldfinger, Thunderball, The Spy Who Loved Me, Moonraker, For Your Eyes Only, The Living Daylights, GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies.
Favorite Movies: There are many to tell, but I prefer something that has a great storyline with loads of escapism and fantastic performance with over-the-top elements which would be pleasing. Action is the main genre I follow, and the spy genre would second that.

2014 looks pretty booked. For a movie with franchise potential, there's no way NM is going to reach the #1 status if released next year. If released in 2014, September or October are the best options. Otherwise, it would have to wait until the year after and leave The Coup for next year.

I don't think it's going to achieve the #1 status on the opening weekend here in the US if released in November of next year.

Same as I thought, but it looks like we don't have low-profile people handling the project. There's Roger Donaldson who did Species, then Marco Beltrami who'll compose the soundtrack, he first did Resident Evil (good movie), Max Payne (the rubbish movie, though the picture name was big), xXx: State of Union (awesome movie!) and the latest two installments in Die Hard series. Then, we have John Gilbert as the editor, and that tells us something. Not to mention, the cast names are big as well. Pierce Brosnan, best known for being Bond (yea yea, I know), Olga Kurylenko who appeared in Hitman (meh!), Quantum of Solace (where's my barf bag?!), Seven Psychopaths (funny one), Max Payne (yep, the same crap), and Oblivion with Tom Cruise. Then, we have Bill Smitrovich who was the main villain in the first Iron Man movie, and then Luke Bracey, who played Kobra Commander in GI Joe Retaliation (awesome movie!). I think it's going to be gaining fame.

NM needs to be a comeback for Pierce as well as pinning GE to submission in every department.

It'll be impossible to surpass GoldenEye, because that movie has left a lot of impact on the audience not to mention was a huge commercial success. November Man may become very successful, as well, but it'll be hard for it to overcome GoldenEye. I don't know though. Miracles do happen.

I can't find a release date for it on Box Office Mojo or IMDb (the latter gives the date as 13th November 2014 in the Netherlands, but does not have dates for any other country).

Probably means the date hasn't been fixed yet. I'd take that Netherlands date with a pinch of salt. IMDb is not a reliable source and it seems a bit weird to set a date for one relatively minor market (no offence to Dutch readers intended) and nowhere else.

Agreed. A release date isn't fixed yet, as you said. I don't think the Netherlands release date is an actual one because you can't trust IMDB as they could do anything with the film's database.

If it was a Dutch film, I might be more inclined to believe it. As it is, it seems a bit random.

18 years and it's WAAAAYYYY overdue, especially for someone who is the best and popular Bond since Sean as well as represented the younger audience in the modern world after the Cold War ended. If any of his future non-Bonds surpasses any of his Bonds (or even better, Mamma Mia), this will prove that he's more than just Bond in the eyes of the general public and that he's not limited to the world's iconic spy (especially in the action realm).
