Apple is bringing together Avengers co-stars Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson in a romantic adventure titled Ghosted. The high profile project will be helmed by director Dexter Fletcher.
While most details about the movie are kept under wraps, The Hollywood Reporter describes the film as a high-concept romantic action adventure. Evans will also produce the movie with David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger of Skydance, the company that made the sci-fi thriller Tomorrow War for Amazon Prime starring Chris Pratt.
Fletcher is best known for directing the 2019 movie Rocketman, which told the story of legendary musician Elton John. Fletcher also stepped in to finish the 2018 biographical music drama Bohemian Rhapsody, based on the life of the legendary frontman of Queen, Freddie Mercury. He took over the project for the last two weeks from Bryan Singer. Ghosted will be written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who penned Deadpool and Zombieland.
Johansson, who recently engaged in a legal battle with Disney for alleged contract breaches for the Disney+ release of Black Widow, is also part of Wes Anderson’s latest, which is currently in production.
Evans recently wrapped production of The Gray Man, an action-thriller starring Ryan Gosling and Dhanush, which is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, who also directed Avengers: Endgame.
Apple is currently producing several big films including Emancipation, a drama starring Will Smith and Killers of the Flower Moon, which is directed by Martin Scorsese and stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro.
