Ana de Armas has been hard at work on her latest Netflix film, ‘The Gray Man’ which will also star Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans. The film is about an assassin who is trying to evade mysterious forces while saving the lives of daughters, who don’t know he exists, according to IMDb. For this role, the Cuban actress has been working with her trainer to learn how to properly use a firearm.
On Thursday, the 32-year-old shared a short clip with her 3.9 million Instagram followers of her in a training session with her trainer. She captioned the clip, “MFDF 👊🏻 #TheGrayMan.”
The action thriller film was once a best selling book and it’s been in the works for years, according to Deadline. ‘The Gray Man’ will be produced by the Russo Brothers, the two men known for producing the Marvel films. “The movie is a real mano, a mano between those two great actors who represent two different versions of the CIA, in what it can be, and what it can do,” Anthony Russo told Deadline.
“For those who were fans of ‘Captain America: Winter Soldier,’ this is us moving into that territory in more of a real-world setting. That’s what this movie really means for us.”
In addition to currently filming ‘The Gray Man,’ Armas will also be starring in the upcoming movie ‘Blonde’ which is a biographical drama about the late Marilyn Monroe. The Cuban beauty is starring as Monroe and the 32-year-old recently said that she cried when she saw herself in the blonde wig when they were filming.
“I had to go bald every day, because with the blonde wigs… [Marilyn] went through different shades of blonde from golden to really platinum, so for these wigs that are beautifully made, you can‘t have anything dark underneath, so we had to make a bald cap every single day from my forehead to [around] my whole head,” the actress told Byrdie.
“It was like, three and a half hours every day of makeup. I think I actually cried the first time I saw [the wigs] on. Probably because I was terrified,” she revealed. ”But, I‘m so proud.”
