Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling will be featured in a new Netflix thriller film from the minds behind “Avengers: Endgame.” The writers and executives behind the Marvel Studios movie have also decided to bring “The Gray Man”. A film based on a series of bestsellers from Mark Greaney – to the streaming platform and the management have committed more than $200 million to the project that will see Evans against Gosling as his character’s arch-nemesis.
This huge investment will definitely be something huge in the company’s history and its future as well. It has taken an enormous responsibility as well as the opportunity to take Netflix even higher.
With the huge scope of the “The Gray Man” novels, the Russo group plans to build up an establishment for the Greaney series. Joe Russo of the film’s scale said to Deadline:
“The intention is for it to be competitive with any theatrical, and the ability to do it with Gosling and Evans is a dream for us. The idea is to create a franchise and build out a whole universe, with Ryan at the center of it. We have all committed to the first movie, and that’s got to be great to get us to the second movie.” He further added, “These are master assassins, and Gosling’s characters gets burned by the CIA and Evans’ character has to hunt him down. We have a great working relationship with Netflix, and we go back almost 20 years with Scott Stuber. We formed AGBO to be an agnostic storytelling company, where we figure out the best platform. We think Netflix is the perfect place for this film.”
“The Gray Man” will be composed and directed by Joe and Anthony Russo who are brothers. Evans is fantastically familiar with them as they have worked in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” which featured Evans in 2014
“The Gray Man” is to be produced by Joe and Anthony newly-minted generation arm, AGBO, and the action thriller carries with it a feel of what if a Jason Bourne-meets-James Bond faceoff takes place.
The original “Gray Man” venture supposedly started its development a couple of years back at New Regency with Brad Pitt and James Gray tied to the extend at the time, be that as it may, the project slowed down and the Russos swooped in and have been discreetly creating it for a very long time now.
As of yet Netflix has not revealed the regions where the movie will be released, but we are sure it will be on American Netflix, which can easily be accessed.
