Dhanush will appear in The Gray Man of the Russo Brothers with Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans and Wagner Moura, the most costly original Netflix film ever at $200 million.
Dhanush got the role of the forthcoming spy movie by the Russo brothers, The Gray Man, which is supposedly the most costly original ever made by Netflix. The lead roles will be played by Chris Evans, Ryan Gosling and Ana de Armas.
Netflix revealed alongside Dhanush that Jessica Henwick, Wagner Moura, and Julia Butters had accepted the roles as well.
Fans of Dhanush were delighted by the confirmation. Actor Prasanna wrote on Twitter, "Super proud of u @dhanushkraja bro." Another entity posted, "Proud moment for all Tamil, South & Indian cinema fans." In The Remarkable Journey of the Fakir, Dhanush made his international debut.
The project is based on Mark Greaney's book, and is currently planned at $200 million as the launch of a new franchise (nearly Rs 1500 crore). "Anthony Russo told Deadline, "The film is the true mano a mano among these two talented characters who portray two separate iterations of the CIA, with what it can be and what it can do. For those who were fans of Captain America: Winter Soldier, in a more real-world context, this is us stepping into that area. And that is what this film really signifies to us."
