Netflix’s ‘Bridgerton’ star Regé-Jean Page joins Chris Evans, Ryan Gosling in ‘The Gray Man’

Billy Bob Thornton, Alfre Woodard and Bridgerton breakout star Regé-Jean Page have rounded out cast of the Russo Brothers’ “The Gray Man” starring Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans and Ana De Armas. Wagner Moura, Jessica Henwick, Dhanush and Julia Butters are also on board.

Joe and Anthony Russo have been developing the project for some time at Sony, and when the package went back on the market over the summer, Netflix was quick to acquire it and set Gosling and Evans to star. The Gray Man will be the biggest-budget feature film in Netflix’s history.

The production is starting in two weeks in Los Angeles. The film is a piece of the strong partnership Netflix and AGBO have garnered in the past year starting with Extraction, which premiered last April to some of the biggest viewing numbers in streamer history. They also worked on the critically acclaimed Mosul, which bowed in November on Netflix.

The Russos penned the script, with a recent polish by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. The Russos and Mike Larocca will produce on behalf of AGBO along with Joe Roth, Jeff Kirschenbaum and Chris Castaldi through their Roth Kirschenbaum banner.
