Chris Evans and Michelle Monaghan were spotted on the set of their new movie, ‘A Many Splintered Thing’ in Malibu yesterday afternoon.
Chris plays a man desperate to woo Michelle Monaghan’s engaged character in the “anti-romantic comedy”.
In the vein of Amelie and (500) Days Of Summer, the film tells the story of a young man disillusioned by love who meets a breathtaking – and already spoken for – young woman at a charity dinner.
Challenged by the chase, and egged on by his eclectic friends, he feigns a platonic relationship in order to keep seeing her as he tries to conquer her heart.
Topher Grace will play Evans’ best friend. Luke Wilson, Giovanni Ribisi, Anthony Mackie and Aubrey Plaza also star.
The movie has been dubbed by movie reporters an ‘anti-romantic comedy’.
Producer Craig Flores told Deadline.com last month: ‘With Reardon’s uniquely beautiful vision for the fantastical journey that these characters take, and Chris and Michelle’s intelligence and talent, there is no doubt that this film [will] challenge audiences preconceived notions of a saccharine-laced romantic comedy.’
The film is scheduled for a 2013 release, and marks Evans’ first film as executive producer.
I love them both! Can’t wait to see this!
