McG, Mary Viola, Nicolas Chartier and Craig J. Flores will produce.
Evans, who will be executive producing the film, has been in the business since 2000 but saw his popularity skyrocket as Captain America. He’ll be breaking form from the good guy role in his next pic “The Iceman”, in which he plays a sleazy assassin. Evans is repped by CAA.
Monaghan gained popularity in a hurry with supporting roles in a string of mid 2000’s films including “Mr. And Mrs. Smith”, “Mission: Impossible III” and “Gone Baby Gone”. She recently starred in “Source Code” and “Machine Gun Preacher” and will next be seen in “Penthouse North” and “Love, Marilyn”. She is repped by ICM.
