Netflix's The Gray Man is getting a sequel – and a spin-off movie.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ryan Gosling will return for the sequel, so too will directors Joe and Anthony Russo, and screenwriter Stephen McFeely - the team behind Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.

Little is known about the spin-off, but Deadpool writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese will take the reigns on the script.

The Gray Man follows the CIA's top asset (Ryan Gosling) - his identity known to no one – who uncovers agency secrets and triggers a hunt by private contractor, Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans) set loose by his ex-colleague.
