Instead of Captain America and Black Widow reunion, it will be Hugh Ransom Drysdale and Marta Cabrera.
Ghosted, the upcoming Apple TV+ movie just experienced a major casting change. The movie was announced last summer, with MCU stars Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson set to star. Now, Deadline reports that Johansson stepped down from the project due to scheduling conflicts.
As a result, No Time To Die star Ana de Armas joined the cast in Johansson’s place. She previously starred with Chris Evans in Rian Johnson’s Knives Out starring Daniel Craig. Evans played the role of Hugh Ransom Drysdale, while de Armas played Marta Cabrera.
Ghosted will be directed by Rocketman director Dexter Fletcher. Although the plot is unknown, the movie is described as a combination of romance, action, and adventure, which already seems interesting. Apple is planning to start production next February, which didn’t work for Johansson whose upcoming projects include Asteroid City, Bride, and Little Shop of Horrors, in which Chris Evans is also rumored to star.
Ana de Armas, known for the movies Blade Runner 2049 and Knives Out, recently starred alongside Daniel Craig in the James Bond movie No Time To Die. Her next film Deep Water is set to be released next month, and two more upcoming movies, Blonde and The Gray Man (in which Chris Evans will also star) are also on the way. She’s also in talks to play the titular role in Ballerina, the spin-off of the John Wick franchise.
Ever since he said farewell to the role of Captain America in Avengers: Endgame, Chris Evans’ career didn’t slow down. Since then, he starred in The Red Sea Diving Resort and Knives Out. He also starred in Apple’s mini-series Defending Jacob and had a special cameo role in Ryan Reynold’s Free Guy. He’s set to voice Buzz Lightyear in the Toy Story spin-off movie, and he’ll also star in The Gray Man alongside Ana de Armas. Both Evans and Johansson are rumored to star in Greg Berlanti’s Little Shop of Horrors.
Directed by Dexter Fletcher, Ghosted is set to begin production next February. Release date is still TBA.
