After reprising his role as Captain America in the summer blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron, Chris Evans takes on a completely different role in the first trailer for Before We Go. The actor not only stars alongside Alice Eve, but he also makes his directorial debut with the film. The indie drama was acquired by RADiUS-TWC following its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival last year.
The film follows the journey of two strangers (Chris Evans and Alice Eve) stuck in New York City for the night. Starting as convenient acquaintances, the two soon grow into each other's most trusted confidants when a night of unexpected adventure forces them to confront their fears and take control of their lives. The film is set to hit theaters on September 4, but it will be available on VOD formats starting tomorrow, July 21.
The supporting cast is rounded out by Emma Fitzpatrick, Mark Kassen, Daniel Spink, Beth Katehis, Fenton Lawless, Kevin Carolan, Turhan Caylak and Elijah Moreland. Chris Evans directs from a script that was worked on by Ronald Bass, Chris Shafer, Jen Smolka and Paul Vicknair. Before We Go will hit theaters in limited release on September 4, going up against wide releases Jane Got a Gun, The Kitchen Sink and The Transporter Refueled.
You may recall that, last year, Chris Evans revealed he wants to take a break from acting after his Marvel contract is up, to focus on directing. He is currently filming Captain America: The Winter Soldier in Atlanta, which is the fifth movie in his six-picture deal with the studio. Unless his contract is amended, this likely means that he will only be featured in either Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 or Avengers: Infinity War Part 2, but not both films.
While we wait to learn more about Chris Evans' status in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, take a look at the new trailer for Before We Go. It seems this will be the first of many movies Chris Evans plans on directing, once he is through playing Captain America in the MCU. What do you think of his work as a director from the trailer?
