Speaking to Netflix Tudum, Anthony and Joe Russo told “The Gray Man is an incredibly mysterious character with a highly secretive past. In essence, he’s a ghost” added “A minimalist, [whose] job is to hide in plain sight. Kill when he needs to kill, and disappear.”
“Ryan is exceptional at communicating volumes through a look or a gesture,” they say. “Creating an interior life that translates in the most subtle and sublime ways. He also has fantastic control of his physicality. In essence, he is The Gray Man (minus the kill orders).”
The film 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. Produced by the Russo brothers’ company, AGBO, the film hopes to start a franchise based upon Greaney’s Gray Man novels.
The Gray Man will premiere on Netflix on July 22.
