Captain America actor Chris Evans could be hanging up the shield after Avengers 4, but he’s not quitting acting altogether, of course. Deadline is reporting that Evans will star alongside James Bond actor Daniel Craig in a new movie from Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson.
Knives Out is a contemporary murder-mystery movie that Johnson wrote himself. Craig is expected to play a detective in the film, but there is no word on the role Evans may play. For now, his involvement in Knives Out is only a rumour, so take it with a grain of salt.
Essentially nothing is known about Knives Out, but Johnson told Deadline in September that it’s inspired by his admiration for Agatha Christie books and how they are filled with twists and turns.
Some of Evans’ other upcoming movies include a starring role in the The Red Sea Diving Resort, which retells the story of the rescue of Ethiopian Jewish immigrants in 1981. Evans is also pegged to star in District 9 director Neil Blomkamp’s thriller Greenland. However, Knives Out is expected to be Evans’ next movie, according to Deadline.
There is no word on a release date for Knives Out. Johnson is a busy man, as he is also set to direct three more Star Wars movies at some point in the future.
As for the next Avengers movie, the currently untitled fourth film is due out in April 2019. It comes with a mountain of anticipation, given the stirring and unexpected events of Infinity War.
