It might have received a lukewarm response from critics, but that hasn't stopped viewers from watching the action film in their millions over its opening weekend.

Ryan Gosling's Six will return. Netflix is expanding upon their latest action blockbuster movie, 'The Gray Man', with a sequel film and a spin-off in development.

The Gosling feature, which also starred Ana De Armas, Chris Evans, Regé-Jean Page and Bily Bob Thornton, debuted as the number one movie in 92 countries across the streaming service this past weekend. According to a Netflix press release, there are plans to turn this IP into a major spy franchise.

No details were released about the sequel film, or its spin-off, just yet. With a number of big names involved in the first entry, any one of them could head up the planned spin-off. Our bets are on Indian actor Dhanush leading this, who shows up briefly as Avik San, but hopefully Netflix will reveal more details very soon.

What we do know is that Gosling and directors Joe and Anthony Russo will return for the sequel. The spin-off film is written by acclaimed screenwriters Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese ('Deadpool', 'Zombieland') and will "explore a different element of 'The Gray Man' universe".

Now, critics weren't a fan of 'The Gray Man'. The Rotten Tomatoes critics score has awarded the film a questionable 48% satisfaction rating (while audiences have given it a healthy 91%). Here at, we gave the feature a two-star review, saying: "If ‘The Gray Man’ was made in 1992, it would have remembered to have been fun."

Directors Joe and Anthony Russo said of the news: "The audience reaction to 'The Gray Man' has been nothing short of phenomenal. We are so appreciative of the enthusiasm that fans across the world have had for this film.

"With so many amazing characters in the movie, we had always intended for 'The Gray Man' to be part of an expanded universe, and we are thrilled that Netflix is announcing a sequel with Ryan, as well as a second script that we’re excited to talk about soon."

'The Gray Man' came with a price tag of $200 million and is based on the series of novels by Mark Greaney.
