Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans‘ new movie The Gray Man will be the most expensive project ever commissioned by Netflix executives.
Bosses at the streaming site have given Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo over $200 million to make the film, according to Deadline.
The story is based on Mark Greaney‘s 2009 novel about a freelance assassin and former CIA operative on the run. Gosling will play the trained killer with Evans portraying his former CIA colleague trying to track him down.
The Russo brothers hope to start production in Los Angeles in January (2021) and if the film is a hit, there are plans for a franchise with Gosling reprising his character.
