Actor Dhanush plays the role of Avik San aka Lone Wolf, one of the deadly assassins in the Russo Brothers’ ‘The Gray Man’, which happens to be one of the most awaited movies of the year.
This action thriller directed by the Russo Brothers premieres on Netflix today, July 22, 2022. On Wednesday, July 20, the Russo brothers, Joe and assassins Anthony teased about a possible spin-off featuring Dhanush’s character Lone Wolf.
Dhanush is making his Hollywood debut with ‘The Gray Man’. The Russo brothers were in Mumbai to promote the movie. During their stay, they had a media interaction and were joined by Dhanush for the same. Joe and Anthony Russo were asked if they would consider making another movie with the actor and Anthony Russo shared that he received several messages from people who wanted to see more of Dhanush.
He said, “I keep getting texts (messages) from people I know that say ‘more Dhanush’. Joe Russo chimed in by adding that Dhanush’s character Lone Wolf is based on a character in ‘The Gray Man’ novel and so there is always a possibility of making more movies in ‘The Gray Man’ franchise featuring Dhanush.
This spy action thriller stars Ryan Gosling in the lead, as Sierra Six (Court Gentry), an ex-CIA operative and current freelance assassin, who is being hunted across the globe by former colleague Lloyd Hansen, played by Chris Evans.
‘The Gray Man’ happens to be Netflix’s most expensive movie ever. The movie is adapted from Mark Greaney’s book of the same name.
At the interaction the Russo brothers said, “It (The Gray Man) is based on a book series, so there is the opportunity to expand in a sense in future movies. We love to keep going with our world, because we love our characters. But maybe the audience can tell as what they want to see more in the story about. If we do continue forward with the story, I can guarantee you that Dhanush’s character would be a part of that world, moving forward.”
To this, Dhanush was asked what it would take from his end, if he was asked to work with the Russo brothers again and the actor simply responded with, “A phone call.”
The Mumbai premiere of ‘The Gray Man’ was attended by Dhanush and the Russo brothers and Bollywood celebrities like Vicky Kaushal, Raj and DK, Jacqueline Fernandez, Anand L. Rai were also in attendance.
