Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling Are Starring in a Netflix Spy Thriller, and, Good God, I'm Ready

Brea Cubit

I've stopped fanning myself long enough to let y'all know that Hollywood hotties Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling are starring in a new Netflix movie titled The Gray Man. The film, which is based on a book series by Mark Greaney, will follow ex-CIA operative turned assassin Court Gentry (Gosling) as he's chased down by his old colleague and new nemesis, Lloyd Hansen (Evans). Joe and Anthony Russo - who worked with Evans on 2016's Captain America: Civil War and 2019's Avengers: Endgame - will direct the $200 million project, which marks Netflix's most expensive feature yet. Joe will also write the script before passing it to Endgame screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely for a final look.

"The idea is to create a franchise and build out a whole universe," Joe told Deadline. "We have all committed to the first movie and that's got to be great to get us to the second movie. These are master assassins and Gosling's character gets burned by the CIA and Evans' character has to hunt him down." So, we're getting some Gosling versus Evans combat action? Oh, sign me up! Netflix hasn't confirmed the release date yet, but let's take this time to mentally prepare ourselves for the beard and muscle action that's sure to grace our screens.

  • I Run 6 Miles a Day, and I'm in Love With My New Hoka One One Clifton 7 Sneakers

    Ever since my CrossFit gym closed in March and the weather was beginning to warm up, I took my workouts outside and started running again. I go every morning for about an hour, and it's really helped give me the space and time I need for self-care and to support my mental health. Unfortunately, my feet have been less than psyched with my daily workouts, and even though I stretch daily and get enough sleep, I've had some issues with plantar fasciitis and knee pain. When running, I found that I had to stick to wearing a specific pair of sneakers and even those didn't make my feet feel 100-percent awesome. Hoka One One sent me the Clifton 7 running sneakers ($130) to test out, and my feet are beyond happy. I tried this brand about five years ago when I was training for my first half marathon, but they were a little too cushiony for me, and I've been using other brands since. But now, I'm officially hooked! What I Love About the Hoka One One Clifton 7 Sneakers When I slipped on these sneakers, I instantly felt the smooth comfort and cushioning. They felt perfect right away as I walked around my living room to test them out. I liked that they fit snugly around my midsole but that I also had a little room in the toe area. I'm a 7.5 and these definitely fit true to size. The laces tightened well and stayed put - although they were on the longer side, so I had to double knot them, otherwise the little plastic ends on the laces annoyingly hit my ankle as I ran. The best part was that the arch support felt great, and I didn't experience the mid-run left foot pain I normally do on my six-miler. When I got home from my run, I realized I didn't have to stop and walk! My feet also felt great for the rest of the day when normally, my feet and legs will feel a little achy and tired. I've used these sneakers for about a week, and I've ran short distances, did an eight-miler, I walked, and I've also tested them on both the road and on trails. Every time I wore these shoes, my feet felt great, and I was impressed and so happy to find a pair of sneakers that allows me to run pain-free. I'll definitely need to get another pair for the winter! These sneakers also look cute, which come on - I'd be lying if I said I didn't care how my sneakers looked. The other Hokas I tried had a huge thick sole, so I like how these look just like regular sneakers. I have the misty rose/cameo brown color and there are a variety of colors to choose from. Keep reading to see all of the other colors you can find in the Clifton 7s. Related: After a Long or Intense Run, Stretch Your Tired Muscles With This 10-Minute Routine

  • I Have a Phobia, and I Wish People Understood Just How Debilitating It Can Be

    When people hear about phobias, they usually think that they're silly or over-exaggerated - but while phobias are, in fact, irrational, that does not make them any less frightening or crippling for those of us who live with them. I know this because I live with a serious phobia: emetophobia, or the fear of vomit.
