Chris Evans Is Reportedly In Talks To Play Gene Kelly, In An Untitled Film
The year 2022 is shaping up to be a huge year for big-name projects on screen and in theatres.
According to Deadline, MCU veteran Chris Evans is set to play renowned actor, singer, and dancer Gene Kelly in an untitled film alongside producer John Logan, who is also set to write and produce the film.
The film is said to be based on Evans’ original concept, which follows a twelve-year-old child working on the MGM Studio Lot in 1952.
According to Collider, no studio has yet been identified as supporting the untitled project, leaving anxious fans waiting for more details. Evans is said to be producing the project alongside Logan and Mark Kassen, who directed Evans in the 2011 indie film Puncture.
In addition, the two collaborated in 2020 to create A Starting Point, a website dedicated to showing videos by elected officials on a variety of themes in the United States. T-Street Productions, run by Rian Johnson and Ram Bergman, is also said to be involved in the project.

Kelly’s career, meanwhile, was filled with classic musicals like Singin’ in the Rain, An American in Paris, and On the Town.
His dance abilities changed Hollywood musicals, and the Pittsburgh native is credited with being the first to show a financially feasible version of ballet to audiences.
Those who are suspicious of Evans’ musical abilities need not be concerned; the actor has posted a number of piano performances to his social media sites. The currently untitled film has received no further information.
