The story goes on when the CIA’s most skilled operative, whose true identity is known to none, accidentally uncovers dark agency secrets.

Agent Six (Ryan Gosling) finds himself on the run from internationally trained assassins following the lead of Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans). He manages to get the support of a co-worker, Dani Miranda (Ana De Armas), in order to keep the secrets safe from Lloyd and his men.
Apart from Ryan, Evans and Ana, we can see a lot of other big names as well. Jessica Henwick, Rege-Jean Page, Billy Bob Thornton, Dhanush and Wagner Moura can also be seen starring. Although only Ryan Gosling’s return has been confirmed as of yet.
