Directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Endgame), from a script the latter co-wrote with Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, The Gray Man is based on Mark Greaney’s 2009 debut novel of the same name.
The film centers on CIA agent Court Gentry (Ryan Gosling), aka Sierra Six who is released from a federal penitentiary and recruited by his handler, Donald Fitzroy (Billy Bob Thornton). Gentry was once a highly-skilled, Agency-sanctioned death merchant, but now the tables have turned and Six is the target, pursued around the world by psychopathic adversary Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans), a former CIA partner, who will stop at nothing to take him down. Agent Dani Miranda (Ana de Armas) has his back, and he’s going to need it.
The cast is rounded out by Jessica Henwick, Dhanush, Wagner Moura and Alfre Woodard. The film is produced by Joe Roth, Jeffery Kirschenbaum, Joe Russo, Anthony Russo, Mike Larocca and Chris Castaldi and executive produced by Patrick Newall, Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely, Jake Aust, Angela Russo-Otstot, Geoff Haley, Zack Roth and Palak Patel.
The Gray Man releases in select UK cinemas on July 15, 2022, and on Netflix on July 22, 2022, and in the meantime, we’ll leave you with the aforementioned first trailer.
