The posters for The Gray Man starring Chris Evans, Ryan Gosling, and Ana de Armas have been released ahead of the trailer launch tomorrow. The action-thriller is based on the 2009 novel of the same name by Mark Greaney, directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, from a screenplay the latter co-wrote with Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. See the posters below.
Speaking to The Wall Street Journal’s Future of Everything Festival, The Gray Man co-director Anthony Russo of his and brother Joe Russo’s production company told
“Everything we are doing at AGBO has universe potential.”
“[The Gray Man] has a large ensemble, a layered story that you are only seeing the tip of the iceberg in this story. It goes deep. We have a lot of ideas about where to take it next.”
The Gray Man synopsis follows, When the CIA’s most skilled mercenary known as Court Gentry aka Sierra Six accidentally uncovers dark agency secrets, he becomes the target and is hunted around the world by psychopathic former colleague Lloyd Hansen and international assassins.
According to Anthony Russo, The Gray Man holds some similarities to their previous efforts in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, particularly the Captain America films, which starred Evans as the titular hero. “For those who were fans of Captain America: Winter Soldier, this is us moving into that territory in more of a real-world setting,” Russo said. The Russo brothers directed the first three Captain America films for Marvel Studios, as well as Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
The film stars Ryan Gosling as Court Gentry aka Sierra Six: a CIA black ops mercenary who is forced to go on the run after uncovering incriminating secrets about his agency, Chris Evans as Lloyd Hansen: an unhinged former colleague of Gentry who leads the manhunt to capture him, Ana de Armas as Dani Miranda, Regé-Jean Page as Denny Carmichael, Jessica Henwick, Dhanush, Billy Bob Thornton as Donald Fitzroy, Alfre Woodard as Maurice Cahill, Wagner Moura, Julia Butters as Claire Fitzroy, Callan Mulvey, and Eme Ikwuakor as Mr. Felix.
