Not content to save the world time and again as Captain America, Chris Evans is giving directing a shot. Before reprising his superhero role in “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, he’ll make his directorial debut on romantic drama “1:30 Train”, according to Deadline.
Described as being in the vein of “Before Sunrise”, Evans will also star in the film which follows two strangers who meet in Manhattan and spend one night together, as “the conflicts in their own lives become the basis for their exploration of each other and themselves.” Evans hopes to complete production on “1:30 Train” this fall before transitioning to the Marvel superhero team-up sequel.
In between wielding a shield and defending the earth from evil forces, Evans tends to stick to darker, smaller films (we’ll pretend “What’s Your Number” never happened). He was recently seen in serial killer drama “The Iceman” with Michael Shannon and recently wrapped futuristic thriller “Snowpiercer” with Octavia Spencer and Jamie Bell and romantic drama “A Many Splitered Thing” with Michelle Monaghan. He’s attached to Steven King adaptation “The Ten O’Clock People” and his next outing as Steve Rogers happens in summer 2014 when “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is released.
