Olga Kurylenko, Luke Bracey and Bill Smitrovich are joining Pierce Brosnan in the action-thriller “November Man,” directed by Roger Donaldson.
The castings were ann0unced at Cannes on Friday — three days before the start of production in Europe — by producers Beau St. Clair of Irish Dreamtime and Sriram Das of Das Films. The Solution is handling international rights and CAA represents the U.S. rights.
Brosnan’s Irish DreamTime announced the project at Cannes last year as part of a multipicture financing and distribution deal with the Solution Entertainment Group, with “November Man” set as the launch title and framed as a potential franchise-starter.
Script has been written by Michael Finch and Karl Gajdusek (“Oblivion”) and developed from Bill Granger’s “There Are No Spies,” the seventh book in Granger’s 13-part “November Man” series.
Brosnan portrays an ex-CIA operative pitted against his former pupil, played by Bracey. The two are in a race to find a woman — portrayed by Kurylenko — who is hiding from her past and who holds the key to an international conspiracy.
Project is financed by Merced Media Partners, Envision Entertainment Corporation and PalmStar Media Capital. Exec producers include Merced’s Raj Singh and Stuart Brown, PalmStar’s Kevin Frakes, Envision’s Grant Cramer, Remington Chase and Stepan Martirosyan, and Myles Nestel and Lisa Wilson of The Solution.
Kurylenko is currently starring in “Oblivion” and Bracey is in “G.I. Joe: Retaliation.” Smitrovich’s feature credits include “Iron Man,” “Ted” and “Independence Day.”
Kurylenko is represented by CAA and Tavistock Wood Management. Bracey is repped by CAA and managed by Will Ward at Roar. Smitrovich is represented by The Kohner Agency and Craig Dorfman of Frontline Management.
