Chris Evans Signs on to Neil BlomKamp’s Disaster Movie Greenland

Chris Evans Signs on to Neil BlomKamp's Disaster Movie Greenland

Get ready Captain America fans because Chris Evans is moving on from his Marvel Cinematic Universe run as the famed superhero everyone loves.

Well, maybe, Avengers 4 will determine his ultimate fate. Until then, your guess is as good as ours since the MCU is staying tight-lipped about the second half of the film.  The superhero hunk Chris Evans is heading to his next venture, a disaster movie called Greenland. Read on…

Chris Evans Signs on to Neil BlomKamp's Disaster Movie has learned that Chris Evans has signed on to Neill Blomkamp, (the director behind District 9, Elysium and Chappie) newest endeavor.

The project is Greenland. Which came via press release out of the Cannes Film Market, about “one family’s fight for survival in the face of a cataclysmic natural disaster.”
Presumably, Chris Evans will be the patriarch of this family, but beyond that assumption and brief logline, we have no other details at this point. That could mean this fits a little more in the wheelhouse of Blomkamp’s style than we’re anticipating. After all, natural disasters are likely only going to get worse in the future.

Greenland will be produced by Basil Iwanyk (Sicario, John Wick) for Thunder Road Pictures with Sébastien Raybaud and Harold van Lier at Anton and Nik Bower and Deepak Nayar at Riverstone Pictures executive producing and co-financing the new motion picture endeavor. STXinternational, an arm of STX Entertainment, will distribute the film internationally, including the United Kingdom and Ireland, but it sounds like the movie is still looking to land domestic distribution.

David Kosse, President of STX international released a statement:

Greenland is the kind of highly commercial genre fare that sees Neill Blomkamp doing what he does best: delivering a smart, fresh, high concept narrative in a world we can easily recognize.

He added:

We were immediately attracted to this talent-driven, wide release, theatrical title that is so distinctive of the STX brand. Working alongside Neill, Thunder Road, Riverstone and Anton to bring this to the marketplace is a tremendous opportunity.

It sounds very intriguing and we can’t wait to see it.
