Mark Greaney’s Gray Man & Netflix

With the announcement that Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans are going to star in “The Gray Man” feature film for Netflix (, you might want to pick up a copy of Mark Greaney’s first book in the series, The Gray Man. The Deadline article says, “Fresh from a robust earnings report that saw it add 10 million subscribers during the pandemic, Netflix has just set its most financially ambitious feature film so far. Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans are set to star in The Gray Man, with Joe & Anthony Russo directing their first blockbuster since setting the all-time global box office record with Avengers: Endgame two years ago. The intention here is to create a new franchise with a James Bond-level of scale and a budget upwards of $200 million.”
