Chris Evans, Ryan Gosling, and Regé-Jean Page Smoulder in the First Photos From “The Gray Man”
Fans are finally getting their first look at The Gray Man, the new Netflix spy thriller that features an all-star cast. Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, and Regé-Jean Page are joining forces for the new film, which will debut on the streamer and in theatres this summer.
The movie is directed by Avengers: Endgame duo Joe and Anthony Russo, who worked extensively with Evans on the Marvel movies. The film reportedly cost $200 million, making it the most expensive Netflix film to date.
The Gray Man is based on the book series of the same name by author Mark Greaney, and the Russo brothers have been adamant that they see this film as the beginning of a new series. Joe told Deadline, “The idea is to create a franchise and build out a whole universe. We have all committed to the first movie and that’s got to be great to get us to the second movie. These are master assassins and Gosling’s character gets burned by the CIA and Evans’ character has to hunt him down.”
“We’re big fans of the spy genre, and we’re always looking for ways of how to twist it, or supercharge it, or push it into areas that feel fresh,” Anthony told Entertainment Weekly. “There was a great idea at the centre of this book, where it’s not just about being a spy, but being the most extreme version of one, where you have to hide your own identity – and yourself.”
