In July 2020, it was reported that Russo Brothers are already working on another action-packed film or Netflix. This project stars Chris Eans, Ryan Gosling in the lead roles. Titled ‘The Gray Man,’ is based on the 2009 Mark Greaney novel about a freelance assassin and former CIA operative named Court Gentry.
It was announced that Indian actor Dhanush is also part of the film. And now the directors Russo Brothers took to their social media handles to announce the beginning of the shooting. They shared the photo of a clapboard confirming it was the first day of the shoot.
It will be an expensive movie over a budget of $200 million. According to a report in Deadline, “The action thriller is a deadly duel between killers as Gentry (Gosling) is hunted across the globe by Lloyd Hansen (Evans), a former cohort of Gentry’s at the CIA. The Gray Man turned into a bestselling book series, and the expectation is that Gosling will continue in multiple installments. The project was developed years back at New Regency as a Brad Pitt/James Gray vehicle, but it stalled. The Russos quietly have been developing it for years.”
Bridgerton breakout star Regé-Jean Page and Knives Out’s Ana de Armas recently joined the cast. The other cast members include Billy Bob Thornton, Jessica Henwick, and Alfre Woodard. Russo Brothers’ production company AGBO will produce an ambitious project. Joe Russo penned the script, with Endgame screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely taking the final call. The movie arrives on Netflix in 2022.
