Chris Evans to make directorial debut with romantic drama
Los Angeles: `Captain America` star Chris Evans will step behind the camera for the first time to direct romantic drama `1:30 Train`.
The 32-year-old actor is set to both helm and star in `1:30 Train`, about two strangers who meet in Manhattan and spend one night together, reported Deadline.
Evans is keen to finish production on the project before this autumn, when he will be reprising his role as shield-wielding crusader Captain America in `The Avengers: Age of Ultron`, Joss Whedon`s sequel to the 2012 Marvel blockbuster.
`1:30 Train` was scripted by Ron Bass, and will be produced by Mark Kassen, Howard and Karen Baldwin, Bill Immerman, and Wonderland Sound And Vision`s McG and Mary Viola.
This will be the first feature film for Wonderland since renowned director and producer McG relaunched the banner last month following a funding partnership with LD Entertainment.
