Netflix is working on a new movie The Gray Man. The film is described as a spy thriller and is based on Mark Greaney’s novel of the same name from 2009. This film has already been described as the most expensive Netflix film ever and is getting a star cast to say the least.
Since Bridgerton appeared on Netflix, the world is one top actor richer. Regé-Jean Page quickly grew into one of the most in-demand actors of the moment. He already hosted an episode of Saturday Night Live and has already been confirmed for a role in the movie based on the game Dungeons and Dragons. And now the Brit will also be seen in the “most expensive Netflix movie ever”.
The Gray Man
The film The Gray Man is directed by the Russo brothers. They also directed the Marvel films before Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. With The Gray Man they dive into the world of espionage.
The film is based on Mark Greaney’s 2009 novel of the same name and will be about former CIA agent Court Gentry who now goes through life as a freelance murderer under the cover name ‘The Gray Man’. In the novel, Gentry is followed on a mission across Europe. In doing so, he tries to save his boss Sir Donald Fitzroy and his family from Lloyd.
The latest addition to the film’s cast is Bridgerton-hunk Regé-Jean Page. He joins a cast that has already been impressive with names such as Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans and Ana De Armas. Wagner Moura, Jessica Henwick, Dhanush and Julia Butters have also been present for the film.
Production of the film will start in Los Angeles in two weeks. The film is part of the deal from Netflix and AGBO, the production house of the Russo brothers. The film was also previously made under that deal Extraction made that became one of the greatest successes in Netflix history last year. Also the popular movie Mosul resulted from this collaboration.
