Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson are not strangers. They co-starred in a string of Marvel Cinematic Universe blockbusters over the course of the last decade. The chemistry between Steve Rogers and Natasha Romanoff in Captain America: The Winter Solider captured fans attention…and their wish to see more has come true with both stars signing on to appear in Ghosted.
Zombieland, Deadpool, and 6 Underground scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick penned the script, which will be directed by Eddie the Eagle and Rocketman‘s Dexter Fletcher, which in turn spells more bad news for the filmmaker’s Sherlock Holmes 3. The project will stream exclusively on AppleTV+, marking the latest high profile acquisition for the platform.
Plot details remain under wraps, but the prospect of seeing Evans and Johansson reunite for a romance-fueled adventure will be more than enough to convince audiences that Ghosted is worth checking out.
The A-listers have put the MCU in their respective rear-view mirrors, but it is an understatement to say the franchise’s former star-spangled superhero had a much cleaner break than his fellow Avenger.
Apple continues to make huge moves, expanding the company’s lineup of in-house movies, with Ghosted joining a stacked upcoming roster that includes Ridley Scott’s Napoleon biopic with Joaquin Phoenix, Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell’s Spirited, Tom Hanks’ Finch, Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon, Will Smith’s Emancipation and Matthew Vaughn’s Argylle.
