Actor Chris Evans informed IGN that his next project will be The Night Watchman, a thriller set against the backdrop of the Los Angeles Police Department. The Fox Searchlight film will be written and directed by David Ayer (Harsh Times, Training Day).
Keanu Reeves stars and Oscar winner Forest Whitaker also recently joined the cast of the New Regency production.
"I play this guy named Diskant. He's a cop, good cop," Evans informed IGN. "When Keanu gets framed or implicated in this murder, he's the cop in charge of the investigation." He added, "David Ayer's directing it. I've met David; I've met Keanu. They all seem great."
Evans told IGN that he starts filming the movie May 21st in Los Angeles
