‘The Gray Man’ is an upcoming American action thriller movie directed by Anthony and Joe Russo. The question of whether the upcoming most expensive movie on Netflix is based on a true story is what makes it interesting.
The action-thriller is a deadly duel between killers as Gentry (Gosling) is hunted across by Lloyd Hansen (Evans). The story is based on the first novel in the best-selling book series by Mark Greaney. The novel falls under three genres, thriller, fiction and suspense. The movie is a “real mano a mano between these two great actors who represent two different versions of the CIA, in what it can be and what it can do”, said Anthony Russo to Deadline.
The debut trailer of ‘The Gray Man’ features Court Gentry, played by Ryan Gosling who is fighting for his life. His fight is with the world’s highest bounties hovering over his head. It follows a former CIA operative on the run in Europe who is hunted by his former colleague.

That’s what this movie really means to us.”
