Dhanush made his international debut with the 2018 film The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir.
The Gray Man stars Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans in the lead roles. The film follows a CIA agent, played by Gosling, on a globetrotting manhunt. Evans, known for playing Captain America in MCU films, is playing a villain in the film. Based on a book series by Mark Greaney, the film is reportedly being made on a budget of $200 million.
Anthony Russo told EW, “We’re big fans of the spy genre, and we’re always looking for ways of how to twist it, or supercharge it, or push it into areas that feel fresh. There was a great idea at the center of this book, where it’s not just about being a spy, but being the most extreme version of one, where you have to hide your own identity — and yourself.”
The Gray Man also stars Rege-Jean Page, Ana de Armas, Wagner Moura, Billy Bob Thornton and Alfre Woodard.
