Rs 1500 Crore: Dhanush To Star In Netflix’s Most Expensive Film?
If you’ve not heard of this news yet, you’re definitely living under a rock – actor Dhanush will be joining the cast of the Russo brothers’ upcoming spy film on Netflix titled The Gray Man. It is being reported that the film will be the most expensive original film that Netflix has ever produced. Apart from Dhanush, the film will also feature actors Chris Evans, Ryan Gosling, and Ana de Armas in the lead roles.
The news of Dhanush joining the cast was announced by Netflix in a tweet. The actor’s fans and his peers in the industry were thrilled at the news. “Super proud of u @dhanushkraja bro,” Prasanna wrote and Dhanush continued to trend at the top spot on Twitter for an entire day.
In 2019, the actor made his international debut with The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir. According to media reports, The Gray Man has a budget of around $200 million (nearly Rs 1500 crore).
“The movie is a real mano a mano between those two great actors who represent two different versions of the CIA, in what it can be, and what it can do. For those who were fans of Captain America: Winter Soldier, this is us moving into that territory in more of a real-world setting. That’s what this movie really means for us,” Anthony Russo told Deadline.
“The idea is to create a franchise and build out a whole universe, with Ryan at the centre of it. We have all committed to the first movie, and that’s got to be great to get us to the second movie. These are master assassins, and Gosling’s characters gets burned by the CIA and Evans’ character has to hunt him down,” Joe Russo added.
