Anthony and Joe Russo are said to be the makers to reckon with who make blockbuster films, whether it is their first Marvel feature Captain America: The Winter Soldier, or of course the blockbuster's last Avengers: Endgame. Since their box office game is already looking great, we would like to know what their future directorial assignments look like?
Among, all their future films, their film Now, The Gray Man is looking great and just a teaser of their forthcoming movie is enough to have us all excited about the film. It is made on a $200 million budget and is all set to give the audience the action-packed ride they are looking for. Based on the novel by Mark Greaney has an exciting star cast that has never acted together in an ensemble film. Let's check out why it is the one film that we are looking forward to the most.
The Russo Brothers Promise Only The Best
The Russo brothers are a powerhouse duo putting together the never-before-seen spectacle. The film is made on a mammoth scale. Going by their previous films, it is only natural. Their production values are simply the best. Avengers: Endgame by Joe and Anthony Russo is behind the not-so-grey spectacle of the Gray Man. The Russo brothers have Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely on board for writing the screenplay, who have penned the Captain America and Avengers films.
The Dream Cast of Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling
Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans have never been seen in a movie together. Fans are excited about seeing them together! Gosling has been missing in action for some time. This film will no longer give a reason for Ryan Gosling fans to complain as he will star as Court Gentry.
Gosling will be playing a well-trained CIA operative chased by the inimitable Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans). Both the stars have an allure of their own and have been part of many successful action films.
The ensemble cast is making us more impatient for the upcoming film. Their collective star power is certainly a star combination to remember. The presence of the power duo is certainly exciting. But there's most to this film and the other star cast deserves a mention too. Ana De Armas, Regé-Jean Page, Jessica Henwick, and Billy Bob Thornton. Wagner Moura, Julia Butters, Dhanush, Alfre Woodard, Eme Ikwuakor, and Scott Haze.
A Successful Franchise In The Making!
The film is yet to release. However, there are already talks about The Gray Man becoming a franchise. Mark Greaney’s book also is a combination of series, comprising ten books that exist in the series. So, there is no shortage of source material for making the franchise. Gosling is already said yes to the future series. Of course, it all boils down to the factor of how popular the series turns out to be. It will certainly have future franchise films if it successfully busts the number game. We hope that the whole cast gets to be back in the sequels.
Comparisons To The Film, Heat
The Grey Man seems to be comparable to the critically acclaimed and blockbuster 1995 film, Heat. The American crime drama Michael Mann-directed movie created quite a buzz at the time of its release. Much like Gray Man, Heat had stars like Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, with other cast members like Jon Voight, Tom Sizemore, and Val Kilmer in supporting roles.
The film also has an LAPD detective (Pacino) and a career thief (De Niro) and how it impacts their professional relationships and personal lives. Heat is a brilliant film in the crime thriller category. Although, it may not be the same the vibes of the film look pretty similar which makes us watch the film even more.
The Russo Brothers are also creating many other films including the Hercules at Disney (live-action version) and next in the pipeline for them is the adaptation of the novel Exit West with Netflix. We also cannot forget the Obama’s (Michelle and Brack) Higher Ground Productions.
But first things first let's fix our gaze on the Gray Man! Are you as excited as we are to see the film? Let us know in the comments section!
