Chris Evans & Topher Grace's Surfin' Safari
Chris Evans, 31, is hitting the beach with Topher Grace, 34, in Los Angeles, but this is not rest and relaxation time — it's the filming for the upcoming movie, A Many Splintered Thing, written by Chris Shafer and also starring Aubrey Plaza, Anthony Mackie, Luke Wilson, Giovanni Ribisi and Michelle Monaghan.
In A Many Splintered Thing, which is slated for a 2013 release, Evans plays a "young man disillusioned by love" who "meets a breathtaking young woman at a charity dinner by pretending to be a philanthropist — though it turns out she is engaged," reports Gossip Center. In the romantic comedy, Evans' character "feigns a platonic relationship in order … to conquer her heart."
The light fare is a bit of a departure from the action-adventure The Avengers that launched Evans even further into the stratosphere of fame this summer, or the next two films that will take up Evans' time — Captain America: The Winter Soldier, expected out on April 4, 2014, and the sequel to the insanely popular Avengers — and The Avengers 2, directed by Joss Whedon and also featuring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Cobie Smulders, Samuel L. Jackson and Mark Ruffalo all reprising their roles as Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Maria Hill, Nick Fury and The Hulk, respectively. Rumor has it that Mackie, Evans' costar in A Many Splintered Thing, will also join the Avengers cast for the sequel, which already has a suggested release date of May 1, 2015.
Grace will next appear opposite an all-star cast of Robin Williams, Robert De Niro, Amanda Seyfried, Katherine Heigl, Susan Sarandon, Ben Barnes and Diane Keaton in The Big Wedding, hitting theaters April 26, 2013.
