Marvel teammates Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans will be teaming up again for the upcoming romantic action-adventure film, Ghosted.
The movie is set to be directed by Dexter Fletcher. He’s the director behind Rocketman, which was an absolutely brilliant film. It was one of the more entertaining movies I’ve seen in a long time. A feel-good piece.
In addition to Fletcher’s directing talents, the script for this project was written by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, the writers of Deadpool and Zombieland.
According the report, Johansson and Evans haven’t signed just yet, but they’re in advanced negotiations. It’s hard to imagine the deal not going through.
Apple Studios will fund this flick…
This becomes the latest deal for David Ellison’s Skydance, which is coming off the Chris Pratt-starrer The Tomorrow War, which was distributed by Amazon. It gives another plum title for Apple, which just opened the Sundance sensation CODA, and is in production on the Martin Scorsese-directed Killers of the Flower Moon, the Will Smith-Antoine Fuqua film Emancipation, and upcoming is the Ridley Scott-directed Kitbag with Joaquin Phoenix as Napoleon Bonaparte and Jodie Comer as his wife Josephine.
No word on when production is set to begin, but we’ll keep you posted as more details are released.
