Ryan Gosling Wants To Start A Franchise With His New Netflix Film

Ryan Gosling says he enjoyed making his next Netflix picture The Gray Man so much that he wants it to become a franchise.

While there is still a lot of mystery surrounding the impending action flick, Netflix's 2022 Movie Preview video provided the first look at the highly anticipated production. On top of a rolling streetcar, Gosling fights off assassins, and fans get their first glance of Evans' mustachioed nemesis. The Gray Man's supporting cast, which includes Ana de Armas as Dani Miranda and Regé-Jean Page as Carmichael, was recently revealed in promotional photographs.

In a recent interview with Empire, Gosling discusses how much he liked making The Gray Man and how he would want to see the picture become a Netflix franchise. The actor says he'd be ready for a sequel to further explore his character in the future, and jokes that he'd want to see Sierra Six "up to a name level at some point." Check out the rest of Gosling's statement below:

"I loved making this film. I’d love to do it again. I’m hoping we can bump Six up to a name status at some point, just for his own sanity."

Despite the fact that moviegoers have yet to see a teaser for The Gray Man, it's evident that Gosling is hoping for a sequel. The Gray Man is one of Netflix's most costly original films to date, with a budget of $200 million (tied with Red Notice), indicating that the streaming service is betting on the film's success. While Gosling's words don't disclose much about the picture, his desire to "get to a name status" for his character suggests that, rather than being referred to by his given name, Court Gentry, the character would be known to by his code name, Sierra Six.

With the recent announcement of Netflix's membership loss (which is likely to continue throughout the year), it's unclear how the streaming service will alter its original content slate in the future. The Gray Man has a lot of talented people in it, both in front of and behind the camera, but the film's large budget may hamper its chances of getting a sequel - at least one on the same scale. It's uncertain if Gosling will fulfill his dream for The Gray Man to become a franchise, but a sequel is potentially possible if the film becomes popular enough for Netflix when it debuts on July 15.
