Chris Evans Directing Romance '1:30 Train' Before 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron'


Chris Evans might not know who Ultron is, but the "Avengers" star has certainly seen "Before Sunrise." According to Deadline.com, Evans will make his directorial debut with "1:30 Train," a romance about "two strangers who meet in Manhattan and spend one night together." The great Ron Bass ("Rain Man," "My Best Friend's Wedding," "When A Man Loves A Woman") wrote the script.

For Evans, it would provide an opportunity to do an indie film before heading into the madness that is "The Avengers: Age of Ultron."

"The process of making the film is what I love -- more than the final product," Evans told Moviefone in 2011. "The problem with big tent-pole movies is that you spend six hours of your day in a trailer. That's a lot of hurry up and wait. You might get through two pages of dialogue in a day. [On indies] you are going to get through eight pages of dialogue in a day. You go home and you're like, 'I made a movie today. I made a movie. I acted in a film. I was hired to perform a service and I had to be on my toes and I had to perform well today.'"
