Chris Evans Will Make His Directorial Debut in 1:30 TRAIN

Even though he is currently battling foes with a grin and a shield for Captain America: The Winter Soldier and will reprise the superhero role yet again early next year when filming begins on The Avengers: Age of Ultron, it appears that Chris Evans is looking to join the fraternity of actors who want to cut their teeth as directors, and is looking to helm a more personal project then his normal faire.  Deadline reports that Evans will make his directorial debut with the drama 1:30 Train, which he intends to shoot this fall.  Evans produces and also stars in the pic, which was scripted by Ron Bass.  No word yet if he will cater and work the camera dolly.  The film is described as a romance in the vein of Before Sunrise that focuses on “two strangers who meet in Manhattan and spend one night together as the conflicts in their own lives become the basis for their exploration of each other and themselves.”

It’s significantly smaller in scope then his Marvel films, but Evans has really been trying to expand his acting range with edgier subject matter like The Iceman and Bong Joon-ho’s upcoming Snowpiercer as of late.  Wonderland Sound and Vision will finance the indie 1:30 Train.
