Another new project! Details are below.
EXCLUSIVE: Billy Bob Thornton, Alfre Woodard and Bridgerton breakout star Regé-Jean Page have rounded out cast of the Russos’ The Gray Man starring Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans and Ana De Armas. Wagner Moura, Jessica Henwick, Dhanush and Julia Butters are also on board.
The Russos have been developing the project for some time at Sony, and when the package went back on the market over the summer, Netflix was quick to acquire it and set Gosling and Evans to star. The film will be the biggest-budget film in Netflix’s history on the feature side.
The production is starting in two weeks in Los Angeles. The film is a piece of the strong partnership Netflix and AGBO have garnered in the past year starting with Extraction, which premiered last April to some of the biggest viewing numbers in streamer history. They also worked on the critically acclaimed Mosul, which bowed in November on the streamer.
The Russos penned the script with a recent polish by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. The Russos along with Mike Larocca will produce on behalf of AGBO along with Joe Roth, Jeff Kirschenbaum and Chris Castaldi through their Roth Kirschenbaum banner.
The Gray Man is based on the debut novel by Mark Greaney, published in 2009 by Jove Books. It also is the first novel to feature the Gray Man, freelance assassin and former CIA operative Court Gentry. The action thriller will follow Gentry (Gosling) as he’s hunted across the globe by Lloyd Hansen (Evans), a former cohort at the CIA. The film is based on the first installment of the series.
Page is best known for his breakout role in the Netflix series Bridgerton and recently signed on to star in the Paramount’s untitled Dungeons & Dragons pic. He also appeared in the Amazon pic Slyvie’s Love. He is repped by CAA, Mosaic, The Artists Partnership, Ziffren Brittenham.
Welcome to Charismatic Regé-Jean Page! Like most people, I fell in love with Regé during Bridgerton in his role of the dashing Duke, and so, I wanted to create a tribute to this intelligent and charismatic actor. I look forward to his future projects and his return to Bridgerton for season 2!
Feel free to look around & I hope you enjoy your stay here! The gorgeous header was made by my lovely friend, Jay. Thanks for visiting!
