For those of you who have been missing Pierce Brosnan’s portrayal of James Bond, you’ll be in for quite a treat this week as he returns to the spy genre in The November Man. Directed by Roger Donaldson, the former 007 star plays ex-CIA agent Peter Devereaux, who is enjoying retirement in Switzerland when he is encouraged by an old friend to take on one last mission. It involves protecting a valuable witness named Alice Fournier (Olga Kurylenko), whom we discover knows more than she is letting on.
But soon the mission takes a personal turn, as Devereaux finds himself up against his former best friend and protégé, David Mason (Luke Bracey), who has been ordered to take him out at any given opportunity. From there, Devereaux can trust nobody as he and Alice are on the run for their lives, hunted by a government that wants certain secrets to remain secret forever.
It was a real honor meeting both Brosnan and Kurylenko when they were in Los Angeles this past week for The November Man press day. While there, I landed an exclusive interview with them and we spoke about what drew them to this particular project, how they approached their roles, their history with the Bond franchise and more.
Check it all out in the video above and be sure to catch The November Man when it arrives in theaters on August 27.
