Chris Evans

Chris Evans goes from superhero to writer in his role in the upcoming rom-com Playing It Cool. Evans stars as a writer who just wants to write action, but is convinced to script a romcom. All he wants to do is show love how it really is, but being a love-hater doesn’t make for a good movie. His whole view on love changes when he meets a beautiful and charming woman (Michelle Monaghan). Aubrey Plaza, Anthony Mackie, Topher Grace, Luke Wilson, Ioan Gruffudd and Philip Baker Hall star.

There has been no release date set for Playing It Cool yet.screen_shot_2014-09-13_at_7.55.26_pm.jpg-web

HBO’s Westworld has added more people to star alongside Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood. They have added Jeffrey Wright, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Angela Sarafyan and Simon Quarterman.

Wright will star as Bernand Lowe, the head of the park’s programming, Santoro will play “most wanted” gangster Harlan Bell, Woodward will play rising star Elsie King, Berdal will play bandit Armistice, Sarafyan will play the most popular attraction Clementine Pennyfeather and Quarterman stars as Lee Sizemore, Westworld’s narrative director.

This upcoming drama is inspired by the 1973 Michael Crichton sci-fi film set at an amusement park, redeveloped by JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot. The series is described as “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.” From creator Jonathan Nolan, writer Lisa Joy, producer Jerry Weintraub and Warner Bros TV, the pilot had no premiere date but is definitely something to look forward too.
