Chris Evans’ post-Marvel Cinematic Universe career is definitely looking pretty interesting.
Evans scored a role in Rian Johnson’s Knives Out, and in the upcoming biopic, The Red Sea Diving Resort. Now he looks to add another role to the growing list.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Evans has entered talks to star in Infinite. The film will be directed by Antoine Fuqua, who directed both Equalizer films and Southpaw.
Infinite is to be an adaptation of the 2009 novel The Reincarnationist Papers by D. Eric Maikranz. The adaptation, according to THR, centers “on a group of near-immortal men and women who are reincarnated over the centuries and known as “the Infinite.” To defeat an evil mastermind who wants to destroy the planet, the group must rely on a man who suffers from schizophrenia and will have to learn that all his vivid dreams are actually memories from past lives, in order to defeat the villain”.
Evans will star in the adaptation should the talks go well.
John Lee Hancock and Ian Shorr co-wrote the adaptation. Transformers producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura is producing Infinite with Mark Vahradian. John Zaozirny at Bellevue Productions is also producing. Rafi Crohn will executive produce the project.
Currently, there is no release date.
Evans can be seen in Avengers: Endgame which opens on April 26th. If superheroes aren’t your jam, then Knives Out will hit theatres in November.
