What's that? Pierce Brosnan needs a new action franchise now, 12 years after his James Bond stint ended? There's a series of novels ripe for the action genre taking that would suit him perfectly? Let's make that deal. But The November Man, from the novels by Bill Granger, ends up being more than a run-of-the-mill spy thriller. Aided by some superb action directing from Roger Donaldson and a nice turn from its charismatic lead, the film trumps most of the recently standard "old guy in an action flick" turns we've gotten.

Lionsgate Ordell (Mos Def) and Louis (John Hawkes) have planned the perfect kidnapping. Their target is Mickey (Jennifer Aniston), wife to a sketchy businessman named Frank (Tim Robbins) who’s hiding a fortune in a secret bank account. The plan is simple. Kidnap Mickey, tell Frank to pay the ransom if he ever wants to see his wife again and then retire in style. But they never considered the possibility that Frank might not want his wife back. Chronology is a funny thing.

Most of the time, people who are lucky enough to work in Hollywood are so busy with their own projects that they don't have time to keep up with what's happening outside of their own professional bubble. That means actors, writers, directors and more aren't quite as knowledgeable as to what's happening with other films, sometimes not even being aware of one another's work.

Ridley Scott is busy. He’s got his Moses tale Exodus: Gods and Monsters opening in December and then will shoot The Martian with Matt Damon, with a November 2015 release already set for that novel adaptation. But Scott also has been announced to direct sequels to two of his sci-fi series: Blade Runner and Prometheus. We’ve been under the impression that Prometheus 2 would hit in 2016, but we’re now wondering if that is even less likely than it once was. Why?
