Netflix commits biggest-ever budget to Chris Evans, Ryan Gosling spy thriller from the Russo Brothers

Netflix has lined up its biggest blockbuster to date. First reported by Deadline, the streaming giant has committed “upwards of $200 million [USD]” ($271.5 million CAD) to an espionage thriller called The Gray Man from Avengers: Endgame directors Anthony and Joe Russo. This will be first blockbuster directed by the Russos since Endgame, which hit theatres in April 2019 and went on to become the highest-grossing film of all time. Notably, The Gray Man will also reunite the Russos with Chris Evans, who they worked with on Endgame and three other Marvel films. Based on Mark Greaney’s 2009 novel that introduced the titular character, The Gray Man will follow Lloyd Hansen (Evans), a CIA agent tasked with hunting down a former cohort, Gentry (played by London, Ontario’s own Ryan Gosling)....
