4 brilliant book-to-film adaptations to watch on Netflix after The Gray Man this weekend

Ryan Gosling-starring thriller The Gray Man arrives on Netflix today and, as the service’s most expensive film to date, is bound to be one of the weekend’s biggest movie streaming hits. Based on Mark Greaney’s best-selling eponymous novel and written, produced and directed by the Russo brothers (Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame), The Gray Man sees a “shadowy CIA agent” [who] Uncovers damning agency secrets” hunted down by a psychopathic former colleague (Chris Evans). As one action sequence cost $40m and took a whole month to shoot (as reported by the New York Times), the brand-new blockbuster promises lots of fun, fast-paced action.

The Gray Man is in good company when it comes to book-to-film adaptations on Netflix, though, and if you’re looking for some inspiration on what to watch next, these four superb suggestions definitely deserve to be added to your Watch List…
