'The Gray Man': Release time out, Chris Evans playing villain
Ryan Gosling right now is busy with two projects, Wolfman, which is being backed by Universal Studios and directed by Blue Valentine-helmer Derek Cianfrance, and The Gray Man. While the first film is under production, shooting is underway for the Russo brothers-directed venture in Los Angeles. And now, we have an update on the latter's release time. The thriller is hitting Netflix next summer.
Why does it matter?
- The Gray Man is one of the most awaited projects and it is because of the cast and crew members.
- Who would really mind seeing Gosling, Dhanush, Billy Bob Thornton, and "a deliciously sociopathic turn for Chris Evans as the villain," as said by Joe Russo of the Russo Brothers, together?
- The film's story, from what we know till now, is also pretty gripping.
