Every office needs its I.T. person. He or she is always there to lend a hand or suggest that you try turning your computer off and then back on again. But if that friendly neighborhood I.T. consultant had a grudge against you? And ruined your career while threatening your family? Well, in that case the only option would be to wreak bloody revenge against him.
And that’s just what Pierce Brosnan will be doing in the upcoming I.T. Billed as a revenge thriller by Deadline, Brosnan will play a book publisher forced to contend with a “disgruntled I.T. consultant” hellbent on destroying his life and livelihood. Who knows to what extent an I.T. person can really destroy one’s entire life, but perhaps all it takes is a few missed memos and server shutdowns for Brosnan to desire the type of full-scale vengeance only a revenge thriller can provide. And I.T. will certainly be worth a watch, if just to see a petty office squabble snowball into something full of death, destruction and heartache. Note that Pierce Brosnan is now old enough
I.T. will be helmed by Italian director Stefano Sollima, known mostly for his TV work and last year’s A.C.A.B.: All Cops are Bastards. The screenplay will be written by Dan Kaye.
