Netflix is investing a lot of capital in the upcoming thriller The gray manThe streaming giant reportedly spent more money on production than anything else they’ve done to date.

“This is meant to be a series of films, and again we could follow other characters, possibly branched, but we won’t answer every question in the film. So you will end the film, [and] I have a full story, but you will still have questions about the wider universe. And I think that’s a way to break the model a bit by not giving the audience everything in a movie. I don’t have a tight narrative. Have an open narration that is [like] a chapter in a book. “

Its intention is that it will hit a lot of different places and we will still be filming in those places. We are very excited about this because it is really important for storytelling that we visit these different places. “
