Following the release of The Gray Man, Netflix and The Russo Brothers are returning for more, with Ryan Gosling reprising his role as the elusive Sierra Six in the sequel.
The film will be directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, and the script will be written by Stephen McFeeley, who co-wrote the original from the Mark Greaney novel with his Avengers scripting partner Christopher Markus.
The Gray Man recently debuted as the number one movie on Netflix in 92 countries, with a 91% Rotten Tomatoes audience score, and Netflix undoubtedly took notice.
The first film cost $200 million to make, making it the most expensive and ambitious Netflix feature to date. It was also released in limited theatres a week before it debuted on Netflix.
The Russos will produce alongside Mike Larocca of AGBO and Joe Roth and Jeffrey Kirschenbaum of Roth Kirschenbaum Films.
Here’s everything else we know about the sequel to Netflix’s The Gray Man:
When Will the Gray Man 2 Be Available on Netflix?
Netflix hasn’t announced any release dates for The Gray Man 2, but given its early development stage and the scope and scale of the production, we can probably expect a 2024 release date at the most.
The Gray Man 2 Plot
It’s difficult to predict what the plot of The Gray Man 2 will be, but we can be certain that Gentry (Gosling) will be involved in some more high-stakes action that puts his life in danger.
Fortunately, we have Mark Greaney’s book series to give us some hints as to where a new storyline could go, and if we base it on the second book in the series, it could get very exciting.
On Target, the second book in the Gray Man series takes place four years after the events of the first book and reunites Gentry with an old face from his past whom he assumed was dead.
As a result, he is tasked with a high-profile kidnapping, putting him back on a collision course with the CIA.
If Netflix wants to continue Court Gentry’s story and take it to the next level, that plot sounds ripe for the picking.
Who is in the Cast of the Gray Man 2?
Only Ryan Gosling’s Sierra Six/Court Gentry is confirmed to appear in The Gray Man sequel as of July 2022.
Given the current state of the story, Ana de Armas will almost certainly reprise her role as Dani Miranda.
Denny Carmichael, played by Rege-Jean Page, will most likely remain Sierra Six’s target in the future.
We could also see the return of Jessica Henwick’s Suzanne Brewer and Julia Butters’ Claire Fitzroy.
The Gray Man 2 Trailer
The Gray Man 2 has been confirmed, but it is still a long way from filming, so new footage will have to wait.
The Gray Man is now available on Netflix.
The Gray Man 2 Current Production Status
The sequel to Netflix’s The Gray Man is currently in the early stages of development, with writer Stephen McFeeley writing scripts as we speak.
Given that the Russos will be filming The Electric State for Netflix until around April 2023, filming for The Gray Man 2 is unlikely to start until next summer.
At this rate, filming will not begin until 2022.
