"The November Man" movie quotes follow the action when one former CIA assassin is hunted by his protege. The spy thriller was directed by Roger Donaldson using a screenplay Michael Finch and Karl Gajdusek adapted from the novel "There Are No Spies" by Bill Granger. "The November Man" opened in theaters on August 27, 2014.

In "The November Man," former CIA assassin Peter Devereaux (Pierce Brosnan) is contacted by old colleague Hanley (Bill Smotrovich) and informed that a former witness of his, Alice (Olga Kurylenko) is being hunted by the CIA to prevent knowledge she has from becoming public.

After making contact with Alice, Peter learns that one of his best proteges and former friend David Mason (Luke Bracey) is the agent tasked with taking both he and Alice down. What follows is nothing short of an action-packed cat and mouse game between two of the best assassins ever to work for the CIA.
