The Gray Man Is A Mix Of James Bond And Bourne-Style Spy Movies, Says Star


Gray Man star Regé-Jean Page says the Russo Brothers’ new spy thriller combines the sophistication of James Bond and the hyper-violence of Bourne.

Régé-Jean Page says The gray man mixtures james bond and Bournes styles in the new spy movie. For years, the spy thriller genre has been dominated by three huge franchises, James Bond, Bourneand Impossible mission. While all three franchises continue to do well with audiences today, that doesn’t stop new movies from trying to find similar success in the genre. The Russo Brothers, best known for their MCU movies, hope to do just that with their new spy flick, The Gray Man.

Based on the series of novels written by Mark Greaney, The gray man follows Court Gentry, aka Sierra Six, a top CIA agent, as assassins hunt him down after uncovering dark secrets about the agency. Directed by the Russo Brothers, The gray man stars Ryan Gosling as Court Gentry, Chris Evans as psychopath Lloyd Hansen, Ana de Armas as Dani Miranda, Jessica Henwick as Suzanne Brewer and Page as Denny Carmichael. In supporting roles, the cast includes Wagner Moura, Julia Butters, Alfre Woodard and Billy Bob Thornton. In hopes of turning the film into a franchise, The gray man is Netflix’s most expensive film to date.

Every big-budget spy thriller can expect to be compared to James Bond, Bourneand Impossible mission at some point, and Star Regé-Jean Page has revealed how the Russo Brothers’ latest film stands up to the giants of the genre. In The gray manthe official production notes from (via We have this cover), Page described the style of the new spy film as a mix of the James Bond and Bourne series. He also noted that the marriage of Bond’s sophistication and Bourne’s hyper-violence makes The Gray Man “something tastier all together.” Read Page’s full comment below:

“There is no limit to the scope of this film. It’s a world travel adventure, but with spies, explosions, guns, plane crashes, there’s nothing not in this film. He has this ‘How is this guy still up?’ factor and he has that suave costume and that Bond sophistication factor. It has this hyper-real, hyper-violent Bourne factor. It simply crushes and makes something tastier together thanks to the marriage of all these elements.

Page comments definitely create expectations for The gray man. While many Russo Brothers fans were probably expecting Thick headed-levels of violence in the new action thriller after Extraction, james bondThe direction of the sophistication of seems more difficult to imitate for the team of realization. More … than “suave suits,” James Bond is known as the pinnacle of the class, even while fighting. None of the Russos’ films saw this particular fighting style; instead, they often include chaotic brawls, like the final battle in Avengers: Endgame. To successfully combine the two styles would be an impressive feat.

It remains to be seen whether The gray man may live up to Page’s comments. Netflix and the Russo Brothers are no doubt hoping the spy thriller can match Extractionbut the first reviews of The gray man were mixed. However, the general public could react more positively to the release of the film. The gray man will have a limited theatrical release scheduled for July 15 and will be available on Netflix on July 22.
