James Gray Directing The Gray Man

Director James Gray according to Deadline is directing an adaptation of Mark Greaney’s CIA thriller The Gray Man.

Written by Adam Coazd the story follows a CIA operative turned assassin who is forced to fight his way against special Special Forces Agent across Europe.

While this sounds like another Jason Bourne film Gray says:

What [Greengrass] did was a documentary style objective approach, and he owns that style. I want to do the opposite, which feels like a good way to sympathize with a professional hitman. You humanize him by never distancing yourself from his experience. This story has emotional stakes that enable me to do that.”

This will be Gray’s first action film.  Even if this is another Jason Bourne type film I don’t mind that so much as long as the action, acting and story is good. I like Gray’s work and look forward to hearing more on this project.
