“The Amazing Spider-Man” helmer Marc Webb is teaming up with the current Captain America and Mr. Fantastic on the big screen.
Chris Evans has been set to star in Webb’s “Gifted” at Fox Searchlight. The story follows a man who sues for custody of his gifted niece and is aiming to begin production this Fall.
Tom Flynn penned the script. Evans is wrapping up work shortly on “Captain America: Civil War” and will segue into this.
Meanwhile Jeff Bridges and Rosamund Pike are in discussions to join the already attached Miles Teller on the Allan Loeb-scripted “The Only Living Boy In New York” which Webb is also attached to.
That project, also setup at Fox Searchlight, is moving to Fox 2000. Teller is attached to play a recent college grad who learns that his overbearing father is having an affair. When he tries to stop it, he becomes involved with the woman as well.
Albert Berger and Ron Yerxa are producing and that film would aim to shoot sometime next year. Webb most recently helmed the pilot for the upcoming CBS series “Limitless” based on the Bradley Cooper film.
