Relativity certainly has some confidence in their next Pierce Brosnan spy movie. They’ve already ordered a sequel despite despite it not yet being in cinemas.
This makes some sense if you think about it. Everyone wants a film franchise these days and this has all the makings of one: it’s based on a popular book series, it has a great star in Pierce Brosnan, and it [looks like the first movie might be some kind of awesome](http://awesomefriday.ca/2014/07/the-november-man-trailer-all-your-friends-try-to-kill-you-eventually/#more-8089).
Still it’s weird that they’ve ordered a sequel into development a full week before the movie even hits cinemas. It shows they have confidence in the property for sure but I bet if _The November Man_ flops plans for _November Man 2_ will quietly be shelved. Similar to how a sequel to _The Mortal Instruments_ was ordered before that film his theaters but then when it bombed _hard_ that plans stopped being talked about.
Either way _The November Man_ is out next week and I’m looking forward to it. Here’s a poster for that film.
