Russo Bros’ ‘Gray Man’ and Jordan Peele Project Among 9 Films to Qualify for California Tax Credits

The sci-fi “Invasion” with Octavia Spencer and the Jessica Chastain drama “Losing Clementine” also qualified

In the latest sign of Hollywood aiming to get back to work in the state of California, nine film projects have qualified for the state’s film and TV tax credit program, including Netflix’s “The Gray Man” from the Russo brothers starring Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling and an untitled Jordan Peele project at Universal.

The California Film Commission said “The Gray Man,” a Netflix project directed by the “Avengers: Endgame” directors Joe and Anthony Russo and produced by the Russos’ AGBO, could alone bring in an estimated $102 million in below-the-line wages and other qualified expenditures to the state of California and is the second largest budgeted project, an estimated $200 million, to qualify for the state’s tax credit behind only “Captain Marvel.”
