What Will Be the Plot of The Gray Man?
CIA mercenary Court Gentry aka Sierra Six (Ryan Gosling) learns about the agency’s dark secrets when he accidentally reads Mark Greaney’s book of the same name from 2009. With Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans) and his elite team of international hitmen on his tail, he has no choice but to reveal his identity to the world.
The film adaptation of Greaney’s novel is not yet clear. There’s a good chance that the movie will be faithful enough to the novel to adapt the rest of The Gray Man series.
Speaking of his persona, Gosling previously remarked that his creativity is only rivaled by his sense of humor.
He said: “In almost every scene, we tried to set it up so that he was at a disadvantage. And it becomes about watching him use whatever is in his environment to gain leverage,” he said. “And what he uses most consistently is a sense of humor. It’s a survival tool. If he can find what’s funny about the absurdity of the situation, he can distance himself from the danger of it.”
