Director of "Masters night," James Gray is going to film the book of Mark Greene, "Gray Man." Major role in the thriller about a former CIA operative, which became a killer will play Brad Pitt. Gray promises to make a film from the perspective of the killer.
Hero of the debut novel called Kurt Greene Gintri. Entered into conflict with his superiors at the CIA operative was a secret death warrant. But he managed to escape, and now he's - gray man, a dangerous mercenary who carries out orders without the noise and dust. Grey Man's reputation is growing every day. The true identity of the killer is not knowing anyone except former handler Kurt, Sir Donald Fittsroy. The CIA wants to see the Gray Man dead and ready to do anything to do this. His head hit man assigned to a big reward. And now, in the footsteps of the Grey Man are the best killers in the world.
For the director job on "Grey man" would be unusual: Gray for the most part takes the drama and action for it to be a novelty. However, director promises that his film will be different from other paintings, in which the former agents go to the other side of the law. James Gray is going to put a picture from the perspective of the killer. He has a similar trick in the film "We Own the Night," when filming a scene in which hero Joaquin Phoenix sees the killing of his father, the chief of police in the performance of Robert Duvall. "Almost every shot in that scene is shown from the perspective of Joaquin, and I want to make the new film in such a way," - says Gray.
James - a big fan of Paul Greengrass film about Jason Bourne, but is going to go his own way. "Paul came to shoot a documentary authenticity, and this is his style. I want to achieve the opposite effect and make the viewer feel as a professional killer. You attach human qualities to him, not moving away from his experience. "
It is interesting that James Gray has worked only one day with Brad Pitt. The director had to put adaptation of the novel "The Lost City of Z" with Pitt in the title role. But in the end the project was closed (according to rumors, Paramount did not agree with Gray on the issue fee), and Brad shoots now in another movie with "Z" in the title.
Pitt name mentioned in connection with the "Gray man" back in January of this year, but it was unclear how the actor will dispose of his time. The fact that he and his girlfriend Angelina Jolie will never work in parallel - the actors are trying to alternate their projects, so as not to leave children unattended.
Shooting of "Grey Man" will begin in January and February 2012.
