The writers and directors behind the Marvel Studios movie are set to bring “The Gray Man” – a film based on a series of bestsellers from Mark Greaney – to the streaming giant and the big wigs have committed more than $200 million to the project that will see Evans opposite Gosling as his character's arch-nemesis.


The astronomical figure is significant given the fact that it will mark the first time in the company's history that it has elected to climb to such heights in order to finance a blockbuster of this scale.


Gosling, 39, is tapped to star as an ex-CIA operative, Court Gentry, who has since become a gun-for-hire while Evans, also 39, plays Gentry's former colleague, Lloyd Hansen, who is handed the obvious assignment of pursuing Gentry.

39岁的高斯林饰演Court Gentry,一名曾是前中情局特工的职业枪手;同是39岁的埃文斯饰演Gentry的前同事,他受命去追捕Gentry。

“The Gray Man” will be written and directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, two brothers who Evans is incredibly familiar with, in the sense that the Russo brothers also helmed “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” which starred Evans in 2014.

《灰色人》由Joe Russo和Anthony Russo担任编剧和导演,Russo兄弟二人在2014年曾执导埃文斯出演的《美国队长:冬日战士》,埃文斯和这两兄弟的关系非常好。

“The movie is a real mano a mano between those two great actors who represent two different versions of the CIA, in what it can be, and what it can do,” Anthony Russo told Deadline. “For those who were fans of 'Captain America: Winter Soldier,' this is us moving into that territory in more of a real-world setting. That's what this movie really means for us.”

Anthony Russo对Deadline网站说:“这部电影是这两大演员之间真正的1对1对决,他们代表了中情局的两面,一个代表了它的设立目标,另一个则代表了它的力量。我想告诉《美国队长:冬日战士》的粉丝们,这部剧的设定更接近现实世界。这就是它的意义所在。”

What's more, is the original "Gray Man" project reportedly began its development some years back at New Regency with Brad Pitt and James Gray tied to the project at the time, however, the project stalled and the Russos swooped in and have been quietly developing it for years, according to the outlet.

此外据媒体报道,最初《灰色人》的项目是在几年前由New Regency制片公司筹备的,当时布拉德·皮特和詹姆斯·格雷也有参与。但后来项目暂停,由Russo兄弟二人接手,他们悄无声息地筹备了多年。
