Reportedly the biggest original movie budget yet at upwards of $200 million USD, The Gray Man is based on a series of books by Mark Greaney. Details now note Joe and Anthony Russo are set to direct with a script penned by Joe accented by contributions from Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus.
Netflix is looking to create a franchise around the film and Ryan Gosling, who plays a former CIA operative, Court Gentry. Gentry is a freelance assassin who is being chased down by his former agency associate Lloyd Hansen, played by Evans. “We have all committed to the first movie, and that’s got to be great to get us to the second movie,” said Joe Russo.
As the Coronavirus pandemic continues, Netflix is looking to build its original content as the traditional theatrical experience gets farther away. Production on The Gray Man is expected to kick off in Los Angeles, January 2021.
