Netflix Is Making A $200 Million Ryan Gosling & Chris Evans Spy Movie Directed By The Russo Brothers

has announced its most expensive movie yet: a $200 million thriller called The Grey Man, starring (as the titular assassin / former spy) and (as the villainous CIA agent tasked with hunting him down) and directed by Joe and Anthony Russo.

The film is based on Mark Greaney’s series of books about Court Gentry (aka “The Grey Man”) who is an assassin, former CIA operative, and “a legend in the covert realm.” Netflix’s hope is that the upcoming film will spawn a spy thriller franchise for the streaming site that will see Gosling return for future films as The Grey Man — sort of like its own version of the long-running James Bond franchise, which focuses on its own eponymous spy. Given that the series has 10 books (and counting), there should be plenty of material for Netflix to work with.

There’s no release date yet for The Grey Man, but production is expected to start early next year.
