This month, Netflix released its latest major film “The Gray Man,” and based on early success, the streaming company has begun work on a sequel and spinoff. The action thriller, about a CIA agent who discovers dangerous secrets, has been a huge hit for the streamer. Star Ryan Gosling and directors Joe and Anthony Russo will return for “The Gray Man 2.” The original film co-stars Chris Evans and Ana de Armas. The Russo Brothers will next direct the sci-fi film “Electric State” with Millie Bobby Brown at the streamer.
