Netflix said in a press release Tuesday that it is developing a sequel to the movie ‘The Gray Man’, as well as a new spinoff film. The original film premiered last Friday on Netflix and debuted as the No. 1 movie in 92 countries. The action thriller film, directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, stars Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jessica Henwick and Regé-Jean Page. The Gray Man opened in select theaters July 15 ahead of its Netflix release on July 22nd.
The Gray Man 2 is now in the works at Netflix, with Gosling and directors Joe and Anthony Russo to return. In addition, Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese (Deadpool, Zombieland) are writing a spinoff that explores a different element of The Gray Man universe. The Russo brothers said in a statement: “The audience reaction to ‘The Gray Man’ has been nothing short of phenomenal. We are so appreciative of the enthusiasm that fans across the world have had for this film. With so many amazing characters in the movie, we had always intended for the Gray Man to be part of an expanded universe.”
