America’s heartthrob, Ryan Gosling is now a spy running for his life in Netflix’s next big-budget production. The streamer is taking out the big guns to bring back the subscribers it lost in the first quarter. And a film that stars Gosling, Chris Evans, and Ana De Armas seems like a recipe for a blockbuster. And maybe even the perfect foundation for a spy saga. The Bourne chapter has ended, and Daniel Craig has finally retired from James Bond. So the coast is clear for Gosling’s Courtland Gentry aka Sierra Six to make himself an iconic spy character. But does Court want that name and fame?
Ryan Gosling says Court wants to watch Netflix and chill
CIA’s best mercenary, Court, doesn’t want money or even a spy life.
“What I liked about this character is that he wants something that most of us want, which is just to be free. His goals aren’t monetary, it’s not about treasure, it’s not revenge. He just wants to have the right to sit on the couch and watch Netflix like the rest of us.”
Ryan Gosling further appreciated Court’s sense of humor even in the most life-threatening situations.
“In almost every scene we tried to set it up so that he was at a disadvantage. And what he uses most consistently is a sense of humor. It’s a survival tool. If he can find what’s funny about the absurdity of the situation, he can distance himself from the danger of it.”
Will we get more of The Gray Man sequels?
Russo brothers confirmed, “The focus is to make ‘Gray Man 2’. Our appetite is voracious and the intention is always to do more than we can.” Moreover, Ryan “loved making this film”, so we are sure he’s going to be back for another.
Netflix’s The Gray Man is an espionage thriller directed by the famous Russo Brothers. It follows Court who lands himself in trouble after unveiling some agency secrets. The agency appoints Chris Evans’ Llyod Hansen to lead the assassination. The film lands on the streamer on July 22.
