THE GREY MAN (NETFLIX)
Type of Project: Plate unit for Feature Film
Shoot Location: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
The Gray Man is a spy thriller about assassin and former CIA agent, Court Gentry, who is hunted by his former colleague, Lloyd Hansen, sent by the agency. The film — starring Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans — is an adaptation of Mark Greaney’s book and is directed by brothers Anthony and Joe Russo.
In The Gray Man, there is a lighting quick shot that takes place in the city of Rio de Janeiro. To produce this shot, Brazil Production Services was hired as the local company in Rio to make it happen. The work consisted in shooting plates of some locations in Rio that would be used in place of green screen backgrounds for the scene with actors which was originally shot in Los Angeles.
In this way, we at BPS were responsible for a very small portion of this very large film.
