Chris Evans may be very busy on the Captain America: Civil War set at the moment, but he’s also figuring out what he’s going to do in between Marvel movies, as Deadline reports that he’s attached to star in Gifted, for director Marc Webb (The Amazing Spider-man).
Gifted, ‘focuses onAll Pages a man who sues for custody of his gifted niece’, and will start filming this autumn. The man is Frank, a deliberate underachiever who is looking after his niece even though he doesn’t officially have custody. However, when the girl’s grandmother threatens to destroy the normal life he wants for the child, he sets out to become her official guardian.
Webb intends to follow that with The Only Living Boy In New York, which Miles Teller is set to star in. The Deadline reports mentions a couple of other actors are also in talks, with Rosamund Pike and Jeff Bridges circling the project.
In that film, ‘Teller is attached to play a recent college grad who learns that his overbearing father is having an affair. The son tries to stop it, only to become involved with the woman as well. With advice from a questionable quirky neighbor, the young man learns about love.’
