The Russo Brothers have finally updated the public about their new project, “The Gray Man,” and it looks like we are in for a treat! The Russo brothers have been very secretive about this film, but they revealed that it would be released this year. It looks like we will have to wait just a little bit longer before getting our first look at what these two geniuses can do with time travel. In the meantime, check out some of Hollywood’s biggest stars who may make appearances in this epic movie!
About the upcoming movie “The Gray Man.”
In 1999 while editing Marvels’ Unbreakable on location in upstate New York, Joe Russo and his brother Anthony Russo were inspired to create a time travel film.
The Gray Man is the story of Duncan Vizla (based on Doctor Manhattan), a mysterious man from an Eastern European country in the year 1985 who possesses supernatural powers involving both time and space. He has been hired by different people over many years for two purposes: either as a mercenary or assassin. The film will be about how he affects those around him through this “gray existence.”
Russo Brothers’ “The Gray Man” is based on a Novel
The Russo Brothers are adapting “The Gray Man” as a screenplay from the novel by Mark Greaney. Russo will be producing and directing, while his brother Anthony Russo is set to produce. The Russo Brothers had the rights to this screenplay before they even finished reading it. Russo describes Greaney’s novel as “a really great take on the superhero genre.”
“The Gray Man” Release Date Speculations
Mark Greaney said Russo Brothers “have a great script that they want to shoot this year.” Anthony Russo has also confirmed the film will begin shooting in 2020. Russo is aiming for an early-2022 release date. However, we know the filing for the movie has been completed. So we can expect a 2021 release, too on Netflix.
The Russo Brothers reveal more about “The Gray Man” Plot
Russo says, “It seems like there’s a lot of superheroes out right now. And what we wanted was something that felt very grounded but would still have some fantastical elements in terms of how he uses time travel,” Russo said.
“We pitched him [Greaney] our interpretation, and then he wrote back his thoughts; for how he saw things working or not working. We went through several iterations of those conversations until finally we just started collaborating because we saw eye-to-eye on so many different things.” Russo also revealed that during the production of The Gray Man, they would be filming for “about a year and a half in Budapest” with “parts shot on location too,” Russo said.
A thriller about an operative from the future who travels back to the present day to prevent his mother’s murder – only to find he is already there? Yes, please! We are intrigued by this one because it seems like such a fresh take on the superhero genre. Russo says, “It feels very grounded but would still have some fantastical elements in terms of its visual style and the world that it takes place in.”
Star Cast for “The Gray Man”
Russo added that they plan on filming The Grayman in Budapest for about a year and a half. They are hoping to film parts of it there too! It sounds like this is going to be an amazing project you don’t want to miss.
