Pierce Brosnan is to return to the world of espionage for The November Man 2.

The former Bond star will reprise his role as highly trained ex-CIA agent Peter Devereaux in the sequel, which has been announced ahead of the film's US release, reported Comingsoon.net.

The 61-year-old actor, who will also be a co-producer, said: "The November Man is an iconic, tough character and I am excited to partner with Relativity to continue to bring him to life."

The film, based on Bill Granger's spy book series of the same name, follows Peter as he is lured out of retirement for one last mission, where he must protect a valuable witness, played by Olga Kurylenko.

Robbie Brenner, president of production at Relativity Studios, added: "The November Man is a gritty series that re-invents the spy genre with its master Pierce Brosnan by combining the best elements of James Bond and Jason Bourne while echoing the cool, sleek action movies of the 70s.

"We are excited to launch The November Man later this month and to continue to explore Peter Devereaux's dangerous world with Pierce over the years to come."

Pre-production on the sequel is expected to begin soon. The film's UK release date has yet to be announced.

Pierce has revealed his joy at playing a spy, saying: "I think there is enough time between my days of James Bond and The November Man... for me to jump back into the ring and give it a try."
