Netflix has revealed the first trailer for the upcoming action-thriller ‘The Gray Man.’ The film, which has the biggest budget ever for a Netflix film, is set to release on July 15 in select theaters in the US and on July 22 on Netflix, worldwide.
The action-thriller follows Court Gentry (Ryan Gosling), a veteran CIA agent, who is betrayed by his own agency, causing him to escape and become a fugitive. A deadly duel between killers began as Gentry is pursued around the world by Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans), Gentry's former CIA cohort. Fortunately for him, Gentry has Agent Dani Miranda (Armas) on his side. The Gray Man became a best-selling book series, and Gosling is expected to continue in multiple editions.
Gentry, codenamed Sierra Six, is known in the spy biz as "Gray Man" — or, as Agent Dani Miranda (Ana de Armas) bluntly says in the trailer, "Reckless mystery men you guys send in when you can't officially send anyone else."
Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans), a rebellious and ruthless former operative hired to retrieve critical information from Gentry's possession. Lloyd, unlike his shadowy target, lives on showy luxury. “If you want to make an omelet, you gotta kill some people,” says Lloyd in the trailer.
The film also stars Ana de Armas, Dhanush, Jessica Henwick, Regé-Jean Page, Alfre Woodard, Julia Butters, Sam Lerner, Callan Mulvey, Wagner Moura, Eme Ikwuakor, Scott Haze, Robert Kazinsky, Billy Bob Thornton as Donald Fitzroy, Michael Gandolfini, and DeObia Oparei.
The Russo brothers' AGBO has produced, and Joe Russo wrote the script, which was polished by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. It is based on Mark Greaney's 2009 novel of the same name, released by Jove Books in 2009, which featured the Gray Man, a professional assassin and former CIA operative named Court Gentry.
