The Russo Brothers’ film is titled ‘The Gray Man' and will have a stellar cast including Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans.
Things are looking pretty bright for the gorgeous Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page. He's joining an incredible cast to work with the Russo Brothers for their upcoming film. According to Deadline, Joe and Anthony Russo have been developing the project for some time at Sony, and the upcoming Netflix thriller titled The Gray Man is said to be the biggest-budget feature film in Netflix’s history. Page is starring in the film alongside Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, Ana De Armas, Alfre Woodard, Billy Bob Thornton, Jessica Henwick, Wagner Moura, Dhanush, and Julia Butters.
The Gray Man is based on novelist Mark Greaney’s best-selling book of the same name which was published in 2009. The Gray Man is Court Gentry, a freelance assassin and former CIA operative. Production will start in Los Angeles this March, and the movie will be about “a freelance assassin and former CIA operative Court Gentry (Gosling) as he's hunted across the globe by Lloyd Hansen (Evans) a former cohort of Gentry's at the CIA.” The Russos have penned the script, with a recent polish by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. We're yet to know what role Regé-Jean Page will play in the upcoming film.

What else is in store for the Bridgerton star? Page will be starring in the highly-anticipated film Dungeons & Dragons, which is expected to come out sometime next year. The 31-year-old will be acting in the action-adventure movie alongside Hugh Grant (who will be playing the villain) and Michelle Rodriguez. Executive producer Shonda Rhimes previously predicted that the actor's "prospects are limitless." And it looks like she was right!
In her introduction of Page for the Time100 Next List, she wrote: You might dream of him, the one we call the Duke of Hastings. But in reality, Regé-Jean Page is finer than fiction and better than any dream," Rhimes continued. "He is that rare actor, one who brings intensity, intelligence, and precision to his work, providing endless depth to any scene. His disappearance into character builds a vibrant world for us to enter, making it impossible to imagine any other actor playing the role. Few actors craft their moments so beautifully — or steal our attention so quickly. As evidenced by his performance in Bridgerton, Regé is a singular talent whose prospects are limitless. Today, he may be our duke. By tomorrow… not even I can dream big enough to imagine.

Fans of the Netflix drama have fallen in love with the actor. And the steamy scenes between him and Phoebe Dynevor's Daphne in Bridgerton have probably added to that. On The Graham Norton Show, the actor revealed how his family reacted to those sultry scenes. "We've got a family WhatsApp group, so there's a couple flashing red light emojis and there's the odd peach emoji — certain people have threatened to rate my peach," he joked. "But we missed a couple of family members . . . a couple of cousins missed the memo, so they're watching the show and I got a very stern message in my Instagram DMs just going, 'There really needs to be a cousin warning.'" One relative even ended up making "tactical cups of tea" as a distraction, but as Page recalled, they said, "I left the room to make my tactical cup of tea and came back and you were still going!'"
