Netflix confirmed that The Gray Man 2 is happening. The Russo brothers will direct The Gray Man 2 and Ryan Gosling will reprise his role as Sierra Six in the follow-up, according to Netflix. The Gray Man has received a lot of attention and has been billed as Netflix’s most costly film to date.
Ryan Gosling plays Sierra Six in the Netflix movie from 2022, which is based on the Mark Greaney novel. Sierra Six is a skilled assassin for the CIA who discovers the sinister truth about who he works for and turns the agency against him. The Gray Man features Six’s tense relationship with Dani Miranda, as well as Chris Evans’ Lloyd Hansen tracking Six down (Ana de Armas).
The Gray Man 2 will air on Netflix, it has been announced. As Sierra Six, Ryan Gosling will undoubtedly return, and Anthony and Joe Russo will once more helm the film. The script for The Gray Man 2 will only be written by Stephen McFeely. For Roth Kirschenbaum Films, Joe Roth, Jeffrey Kirschenbaum, Mike Larocca of the Russos, and AGBO will produce. The star power of Gosling, Evans, and de Armas, as well as Netflix’s sizable subscription base, the film was able to find success. This was always the goal because The Gray Man’s finale provides room for spinoffs and sequels as long as Netflix was satisfied with the film’s box office results.
Many details of The Gray Man 2 are still unclear as of the announcement. There is currently no release date or time frame for the sequel’s production. Chris Evans’ status for The Gray Man 2 is likewise unknown, as is the return of other cast members like Ana de Armas, Jessica Henwick, Regé-Jean Page, and Julia Butters. The conclusion of The Gray Man undoubtedly suggests that we will see the final four actors again as Sierra Six’s story develops. Along with the announcement of The Gray Man 2, there is also word that a mysterious offshoot film for The Gray Man is in production.
Even given the film’s mixed reviews, Netflix’s confirmation of The Gray Man 2 shouldn’t come as a surprise. The Gray Man was always going to be one of the franchises that the streaming service seeks to develop. Though it will be interesting to watch how the Russos approach addressing the original movie’s flaws in the sequel.
