Get ready for a revenge thriller Last Man Out! Or, even better – get ready for Pierce Brosnan, who is set to play the lead in the whole thing! We’ve just learned that Brosnan has signed on to star in Terry Loane‘s adaptation of Stuart Neville‘s novel The Twelve, where he’ll play a former IRA hitman. Check out the rest of this report to find more details about the project.
So, at this momet we know that Terry Loane will direct the whole thing from a script written by Craig Ferguson and Ted Mulkerin which is based on Stuart Neville‘s The Twelve (titled Ghosts of Belfast in America).
As THR reports, Pierce Brosnan is set to play a former IRA hitman named Gerry Fegan who, released from prison after serving 20 years for murder, is haunted by the memory of his victims. He can find no peace until he takes revenge on their behalf.
In case you’re interested in more details, here’s an official description of Neville’s novel:
Former paramilitary killer Gerry Fegan is haunted by his victims, twelve souls who shadow his every waking day and scream through every drunken night. Just as he reaches the edge of sanity they reveal their desire: vengeance on those who engineered their deaths. From the greedy politicians to the corrupt security forces, the street thugs to the complacent bystanders who let it happen, all must pay the price. When Fegan’s vendetta threatens to derail Northern Ireland’s peace process and destabilise its fledgling government, old comrades and enemies alike want him gone. David Campbell, a double agent lost between the forces of law and terror, takes the job. But he has his own reasons for eliminating Fegan; the secrets of a dirty war should stay buried, even if its ghosts do not.
Casting for Last Man Out is now under way, and Beau St. Clair, Steve Clark-Hall, Jonathan Loughran and Rebecca Tucker will produce the whole thing.
