But if you’re reading this post, it means that you are already aware of that information. You are one of the many people who have seen it — The Gray Man is currently the movie on Netflix that has been seen the most — and you are curious as to whether or not there will be any more. Well, you’re in luck, we’ve got intel. Keep reading below.
Is Gray Man 2 Coming?
Yes! Despite this, we have no reason to be shocked. Even before the movie was favorably received by audiences in theatres and online, the Russo Brothers made it abundantly apparent that they never considered the storyline in The Gray Man to be constrained to only one movie.
Back in December of the year 2020, Joe Russo spoke at a CCXP event and outlined his ideas for an action series. He stated that the first film will not provide a solution to each and every question that was asked. “This is being designed as a series of films, and again, potentially branching out, we could follow different characters,” however, “we are not going to address every question in the movie.”
On Tuesday, Netflix announced that a sequel, which will star Ryan Gosling and be written by him, the Russo Brothers, and Stephen McFeely, has been given the go-ahead and is currently in production.
In an interview with Deadline, Joe Russo indicated that the upcoming film would continue to take its inspiration for its story from Greaney’s books. According to what he claimed, “we have an enormous amount of source material from an amazing offer.”
In addition to that! Also on Tuesday, the streaming service revealed that it was working on a spin-off and that Deadpool and Zombieland authors Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese had been attached to the project as screenwriters.

The directors have hinted that this story will take an unexpected turn at some point, so readers should be prepared for that. Joe Russo offered this explanation in the same interview with Deadline, adding, “We’re going to try something a little more edgy and experimental with that.” He anticipates that a leveled-up rating will be forthcoming: “It indicates that one will have a difficult R. At this juncture, I am unable to comment further.”
