Looking for other new projects to do outside of his Marvel duties, Chris Evans has signed onto true-life tale Red Sea Diving Resort, which will see him co-starring with The Girl On The Train’s Haley Bennett.
Resort, which was originally developed by Homeland’s Gideon Raff from Alice LaPlante’s book Turn Of Mind, has gone by several titles on its journey to the screen, as was once known as Operation Brothers and then Operation Resort. Raff is still aboard to direct his script, which will chronicle the evacuation of Jewish Ethiopian Civil War refugees from Sudan to Israel in the late 1970s and early ’80s. On the orders of then-Prime Minister Menachem Begin, Mossad set up a secret base in a deserted Sudanese holiday camp, and orchestrated the mass extraction by sea and air. Evans is aboard to play Ari Kidron, a charming Israeli agent who assembles a team to help refugees on the ground, while Bennett’s role has yet to be revealed, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Raff originally sold the idea to Fox Searchlight, but after development there crawled to a halt, he shopped it around and landed at Fences production company Bron Studios, with Alexandra Milchan still aboard to produce. All being well, Raff should have the cameras cranking this summer.
Evans had Gifted arriving here on 16 June and has been back at work as Captain America for the Avengers: Infinity War films, the first of which opens in the UK on 27 April next year. Bennett will next be seen in A Kind Of Murder and Thank You For Your Service.
