After the action movie ‘Extraction’ got over 99 million views on Netflix in four weeks, the producers of the movie, Joe and Anthony Russo, aimed to create a new film, but now they will also act as directors. The project in the genre of a spy thriller was named ‘The Gray Man’. According to Deadline, the film will be the “debut of the James Bond franchise,” while its budget will be over $ 200 million. Thus, “The Gray Man” will become the most expensive Netflix film. It is reported that the leading roles in the blockbuster will be played by top-class Hollywood stars Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans.
The Russo brothers have previously worked with Evans, directing several films within Marvel Studios, including Avengers: Endgame. This connection of the “Gray Man” with the MCU is not limited to, because the scriptwriters of the new film will be Christopher Marcus and Stephen McFeely, who also worked on films about the Avengers.
The Gray Man is based on the novel of the same name by writer Mark Greaney, released in 2009.
