Actor Dhanush left to the United States recently to shoot for his Hollywood film ‘The Gray Man’, directed by Anthony and Joe Russo (of Avengers fame). The film is an action thriller based on the debut novel by Mark Greaney. Interestingly, in a recent interaction, Mark Greaney, who seems to have been surprised by Dhanush being cast in the film, has apparently revealed the South Indian actor’s role in the film.
It is known that Dhanush will be sharing screen space with Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans, among others, in the Hollywood film. It has now been learnt that Dhanush might most probably be playing the head of one of the teams that is after freelance assassin and former CIA operative Court Gentry played by Ryan Gosling.
Talking about Dhanush in a recent interaction, Mark Greaney said, “It is facinating to me that they cast an Indian actor Dhanush, whom I am not familiar with. I assume he plays one of head of the kill team that is after Court Gentry (played by Ryan Gosling). “
About the fan following of Dhanush, Mark Greaney said, “I have some 6000 followers on Twitter and it is nothing special. Then Dhanush followed me on Twitter, the Indian actor who is going be in ‘The Gray Man’. I was like wow he is following me and he has some 9.7 million followers. He is a very big deal.”
‘The Gray Man’ to be directed by filmmaker duo Anthony and Joe Russo also has popular Hollywood actor Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans. The star cast also includes Wagner Moura, Julia Butters and Jessica Henwick.
