Rege-Jean Page has described 'The Gray Man' as a blend between the James Bond and Jason Bourne franchises.

The 'Bridgerton' star plays Denny Carmichael in Netflix's big-budget spy flick and suggested that the movie combines the elements of 007 and that Matt Damon-led Bourne series to make it "something tastier all together".

In the official production notes for 'The Gray Man', Rege said: "There is no limit to the scope of this film. It's a global travel adventure, but with spies, explosions, guns, falling out of airplanes – there's nothing that isn't in this movie.

"It has this 'How is this dude still on his feet?' factor and it has that suave suits and sophistication Bond factor. It has that hyper-real, hyper-violent Bourne factor.

"It just smushes it all in and makes something tastier altogether thanks to the marriage of all those elements."

The movie's starry cast features Ryan Gosling as a skilled CIA mercenary who operates under the alias Sierra Six and the actor revealed he was drawn to playing the spy who wasn't on any sort of mission.

The 41-year-old actor said: "His goals aren't monetary, it's not about treasure, it's not revenge. He just wants to have the right to sit on the couch and watch Netflix like the rest of us."

Both cast and crew hope that 'The Gray Man' will mark the launch of a franchise and Ryan is already keen to get to work on more films.

He said: "I loved making this film. I'd love to do it again. I'm hoping we can bump Six up to a name status at some point, just for his own sanity."
