The Gray Man, the latest film from Anthony and Joe Russo, premieres on Netflix on July 22 and is one of the most anticipated action films of the summer due in no little part to the film’s strong ensemble, which includes Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, and Billy Bob Thornton. In light of the current trend of post-credits sequences in action films, some fans are wondering whether The Gray Man, which is also in cinemas this weekend, would follow suit and offer viewers something to look forward to after the film itself is over. While the Russo Brothers have been upfront about their desire for the picture to be a part of a greater world, there is no post-credits sequence, according to a report.
Court Gentry, a freelance assassin and former CIA operative, is the protagonist of The Gray Man, which is based on Mark Greaney’s 2009 novel. As a result of his own agency’s betrayal, he has been obliged to become a fugitive. The action-thriller adaptation is described as a deadly battle between killers, with Gentry being hunted all across the world by Lloyd Hansen, Gentry’s old CIA partner.
Ana de Armas, Regé-Jean Page, Wagner Moura, Alfre Woodard, Jessica Henwick, Julia Butters, Scott Haze, Dhanush, Billy Bob Thornton, Eme Ikwuakor, Michael Gandolfini, Calla Mulvey, Robert Kazinsky, Sam Lerner, and DeObia Oparei will appear in the film with Gosling and Evans.
Joe and Anthony Russo, who previously directed Avengers: Endgame, are directing The Gray Man. The script was written by Joe Russo and AGBO’s Co-Presidents of Story and Marvel Cinematic Universe writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, and it was “finalized” by AGBO’s Co-Presidents of Story and MCU writers Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus. The project’s objective is to create a “James Bond-level” blockbuster with a projected $200 million budget.
The Russo Brothers and Mike Larocca for AGBO, as well as Joe Roth and Jeff Kirschenbaum for Roth Kirschenbaum, are producing the picture.
