The Gray Man, a $200 million Netflix blockbuster starring Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling will be shooting in the Czech capital through July 20.
The action on The Gray Man is now taking place during daytime hours, between 9:30 and 19:00 in Prague 7, especially in the area of Dukelských hrdinů and surroundings.
Filming previously took place on Prague’s Vítkov National Monument, and future scenes will be shot in the city center at locations including Jan Palach Square in front of the Rudolfinum, Pařížská, and Náměstí Republiky.
Outdoor locations in Prague 1, 2, 3, 7, and 8 will all be utilized during the production of The Gray Man.
The Gray Man is being directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, who previously made Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. The film has been adapted from the novel by Mark Greaney, in which Prague also played a key location.
The outstanding cast is rounded out by Jessica Henwick, Wagner Moura, Dhanush, Julia Butters, Billy Bob Thornton, and Alfre Woodard.
Joe Russo on the film’s scale: “The intention is for it to be competitive with any theatrical, and the ability to do with Gosling and Evans is a dream for us. The idea is to create a franchise and build out a whole universe, with Ryan at the center 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. We have a great working relationship with Netflix, and we go back almost 20 years with Scott Stuber. We formed AGBO to be an agnostic storytelling company, where we figure out the best platform. We think Netflix is the perfect place for this film.”
Netflix has yet to confirm a release date for the movie, but it seems unlikely that it’ll be hitting the streaming service in 2021.
