Chris Evans & Ryan Gosling Will Star in Netflix's Most Expensive Movie Yet

Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling will star in the upcoming movie The Gray Man, which is set to be the most expensive movie ever made by Netflix.

Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo are directing the movie, which has a budget upward of $200 million, according to Deadline.

The action thriller has the potential of becoming a franchise for Ryan‘s character. The story is described as “a deadly duel between killers as Gentry (Gosling) is hunted across the globe by Lloyd Hansen (Evans), a former cohort of Gentry’s at the CIA.”

“The movie is a real mano a mano between those two great actors who represent two different versions of the CIA, in what it can be, and what it can do,” Anthony Russo told Deadline. “For those who were fans of Captain America: Winter Soldier, this is us moving into that territory in more of a real-world setting. That’s what this movie really means for us.”

Joe Russo added, “The intention is for it to be competitive with any theatrical, and the ability to do with with Gosling and Evans is a dream for us. The idea is to create a franchise and build out a whole universe, with Ryan at the center of it. We have all committed to the first movie, and that’s got to be great to get us to the second movie. These are master assassins, and Gosling’s characters gets burned by the CIA and Evans’ character has to hunt him down. We have a great working relationship with Netflix, and we go back almost 20 years with Scott Stuber. We formed AGBO to be an agnostic storytelling company, where we figure out the best platform. We think Netflix is the perfect place for this film.”

Netflix just revealed the top 10 most watched original movies on the streaming service.
