Pierce Brosnan returns to the thriller genre this weekend with The November Man, and now another action-oriented picture of his has landed a director.  Deadline reports that A Good Day to Die Hard helmer John Moore has been tapped to direct I.T., which will star Brosnan as a publisher who is tormented via technology when his relationship with a young I.T. consultant goes south.  Moreover, William Wisher Jr. (Terminator 2, The 13th Warrior) has been tapped to rewrite the screenplay for the Voltage Films picture, which was originally penned by Dan Kay.  In addition to the abysmal A Good Day to Die Hard, Moore’s directing credits also include Max Payne and Behind Enemy Lines.

Producers are currently looking to cast the antagonist role—that of the dreaded I.T. consultant—in anticipation of beginning production on the thriller this fall.  Brosnan is also attached to star in a November Man sequel if the first film does well in theaters, so it’s certainly clear that the actor is game for heading up more action oriented roles in the near future.
