Chris Evans is set to star in Red Sea Diving Resort, the Gideon Raff-directed drama that will be financed by Bron Studios. The drama revolves around the rescue and transport of Ethiopian Jews to Israel in 1981. Raff wrote the script and Alexandra Milchan is producing. Evans will play Ari Kidron, a charming Israeli agent who assembles a ragtag team to help with the exodus on the ground.
Evans will next be seen starring in the Marc Webb-directed Gifted for Fox Searchlight. He’s also reprising his Captain America role in the back-to-back sequels of Avengers: Infinity War.

Fox Searchlight has released the trailer for the upcoming Marc Webb-directed indie drama Gifted that stars Chris Evans as a single man raising his math-prodigy niece (McKenna Grace). In theaters April 12, the pic co-stars Octavia Spencer, Lindsay Duncan and Jenny Slate
Written by Tom Flynn, Gifted tells the story of Frank Adler (Evans), whose plans for a normal life for his spirited niece Mary are interrupted when the 7-year-old’s mathematics abilities come to the attention of Frank’s formidable mother Evelyn (Duncan). Frank is forced to take legal action after his mother’s plans for her granddaughter threaten to separate the two.
FilmNation’s Karen Lunder and Andy Cohen produced the pic
Marvel Entertainment has released another clip from the much larger “United We Stand, Divided We Fall – The Making of Captain America: Civil War” featurette that will be included in the Digital HD and Blu-ray releases.
This one-minute video features Chris Evans, Elizabeth Olsen, and Sebastian Stan talking up Team Cap — Steve Rogers/Captain America (Evans), Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier (Stan), Wanda/Scarlet Witch (Olsen), Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Scott Lang/Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), and Clint Barton/Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner).
“We found Bucky first; we broke him free, so we in turn have The Winter Soldier on our squad as well,” says Evans. “We also have Scarlet Witch.” Olsen adds, “I was just kind of looking around like, ‘We have a really good team, you guys.’ And it felt that way. And we had all the jokey people on our team.”
Not all blooper reels are created equal. Most films and TV shows lack the comedy powerhouse lineup of a Parks And Recreation gag reel, say, and to expect such would be asking too much. But when you’ve got an entire movie crammed full of the most recognizable and successful stars in Hollywood, it somehow makes all those flubbed lines and goofball mugging for the camera that much more delightful. Such is the case with the just released gag reel for Captain America: Civil War, hot on the heels of Marvel’s endlessly watchable video revealing just what Thor was up to during this superhero grudge match. It’s a short but satisfying assemblage of clips, in which tricky dialogue gets mangled, Scarlett Johansson has trouble with her weapons, and Chris Evans promises he’ll “act the shit out of” a scene, just as soon as he stops laughing.
Marvel’s next “Avengers” adventure — titled “Infinity War” — might no longer be told two in two parts, as it was previously announced to be.
A schedule change from Disney late Friday said that the second film in the planned two-parter would no longer be called “Avengers: Infinity War Part II.” Instead, that project has been renamed as an “Untitled Avengers” film.
The studio will release the first part “Avengers: Infinity War” — no longer with “Part 1” in its title — as planned on May 4, 2018. The second film, now called “Avengers Untitled,” will hit as planned on May 3, 2019.
Representatives for Disney, Marvel and the Russo Bros did not respond to TheWrap’s request for further comment.
In an interview on Uproxx in May, the brothers signaled their intention to change the titles. “The movies are two very different movies,” Joe Russo said, with Anthony adding, “it is misleading.”
“The intention is we will change it, we just haven’t come up with the titles yet. But, yes, we will change it,” Joe concluded.
This retitling (or un-titling, as it were) raises questions about the 2019 film involving the heroes Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner). That film is still scheduled to hit on May 3, 2019.
The Russos were expected to begin shooting the project this November, and were thought to be filming both films back-to-back with a year in between for edits and release.
Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (“Captain America: Civil War”) are writing the script with input from the Russos.
