The Gray Man has been commissioned to live on in a sequel and a spin-off movie. This move is unsurprising because of how well-received the movie has been since debuting worldwide on Netflix on July 22.
Directors Joe & Anthony Russo and leading man Ryan Gosling are all set to return to their creative roles, alongside the first film’s co-writer Stephen McFeely who’s writing the new script still based on the book series by Mark Greaney.
No official viewership data has been released yet by Netflix, but the streaming service already revealed The Gray Man was already the #1 film in 92 different markets, just one weekend after the film premiered in select 1,500 theaters in 25 countries.
The audience love the movie and clearly want more, with many praising it’s uncommon commitment to crazy action stunts, something the Russo brothers also echoed in their statement.
“The audience reaction to ‘The Gray Man’ has been nothing short of phenomenal. We are so appreciative of the enthusiasm that fans across the world have had for this film.
“With so many amazing characters in the movie, we had always intended for the Gray Man to be part of an expanded universe, and we are thrilled that Netflix is announcing a sequel with Ryan, as well as a second script that we’re excited to talk about soon,” the director brothers said.
No date has been announced for the either the sequel or spin-off’s debut.
