Relativity has acquired the U.S. distribution rights for “November Man,” directed by Roger Donaldson and starring Brosnan, Olga Kurylenko, and Luke Bracey. Donaldson has a good working relationship with Relativity, as they distributed his 2008 Jason Statham-led hit “The Bank Job.” Also interesting about this pairing is the fact that the cast includes an ex-Bond and ex-Bond Girl.
The thriller is adapted from the Bill Granger novel, “There Are No Spies,” in which a former CIA operative, who gets back into the game for a personal mission, finds himself pitted against his former protege in a plot that involves high-level CIA officials, and the Russian President-elect.
Relativity has committed to a wide release sometime later this year. Written by Michael Finch and Karl Gajdusek, the film is produced by Brosnan’s Irish DreamTime and Sriram Das of Das Films, in association with The Solution Entertainment Group, Merced Media Partners, and Palmstar Media Capital.
Relativity president Tucker Tooley closed the deal with CAA and attorney Marc H. Simon, while The Soution Entertainment Group is selling offshore rights.
