The Russos and Chris Evans are at it again, this time with megastar Ryan Gosling being thrown into the mix.
After the success of their Netflix film Extraction starring Chris Hemsworth, the Russos are heading back to Netflix with their production company AGBO to produce The Gray Man, a film based on the book by Mark Greaney. The announcement, exclusively reported by Deadline, confirms Evans, Gosling, and the Russos new partnership on the project.
The action thriller will follow Gentry (Gosling) as he’s hunted by a former ally from the CIA, Lloyd Hansen (Evans). The book was a bestseller, and it may lead to multiple installments for Gosling’s character. The film is hoping to begin production in January.
The script was penned by Joe Russo with some extra flair added by a look-over from fellow Marvel alums Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who worked with the Russos on all their Marvel films in the Captain America trilogy and Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame.
In addition to this, AGBO and the Russos have a full plate with an Extraction sequel for Netflix, a live-action Hercules for Disney, an adaption of the novel Exit West, among a few others. You can check out Evans’ latest miniseries, Defending Jacob, exclusively on Apple TV+ and check out his new civic engagement website A Starting Point. And Gosling has a few projects in the works in addition to The Gray Man, including a werewolf flick, Wolfman, and a new space thriller Project Hail Mary.
