The Gray Man is a new action thriller directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, and it was produced in association with Netflix and the Audi brand. The film's official car brand, Audi, is represented by four vehicles: an electric Audi RS e-tron GT and Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron, a gas-powered Audi RS 7 Sportback, and an Audi R8 Coupé. On July 15, The Gray Man premiered worldwide in select theaters, and on July 22, 2022, it will be made available on Netflix in every country.
Agent Dani Miranda drives an all-electric Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron, while Sierra Six (Ryan Gosling) pilots an all-electric Audi RS e-tron GT (Ana de Armas). In a car chase scene, Agent Dani Miranda drives an Audi RS 7 Sportback, and Avik San drives an Audi R8 Coupé (Dhanush).
Audi's role in the production went far beyond simply delivering the cars, as Henrik Wenders, Head of Brand at AUDI AG, explains: "In this collaboration, we experienced action and fast pace. Audi collaborated with Joe and Anthony Russo, the film's directors, to select the models of cars used in the production. The filmmaking process has been fascinating thanks to our partnership and close collaboration with Netflix."
Additionally, Anthony Russo added, "We've always felt it was our duty as storytellers to seek out and experiment with cutting-edge tools to accomplish the previously impossible." That is what piques our interest. With that outlook, I would approach anything, but especially the current transformation of the automotive industry. As much as I enjoy modern and classic automobiles, I am more intrigued by the directions in which automotive technology is likely to develop in the future. It's uncharted territory, full of surprises for us as drivers, shoppers, and people who share the road with automobiles.
Audi will release a digital short film after the film's July 22, 2022, release on Netflix in approximately 30 countries around the world, in which agent Dani Miranda (Ana De Armas) learns more about her new electric Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron. Those interested in "The Gray Man" can also enter a digital version of the show's universe.
