- A MANY SPLINTERED THING
A number of actors have been lined up to join the “anti-romantic comedy” A Many Splintered Thing.
The pic stars Chris Evans as a man burned by past lovers who meets an engaged woman (Michelle Monaghan) and decides to feign a platonic relationship in order to keep seeing her as he tries to win her over.
Variety reports that Anthony Mackie (Who will star alongside Evans in Captain America: The Winter Soldier), Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation), Giovanni Ribisi (Ted) and Philip Baker Hall (50/50) are all in various stages of negotiations to join the cast, while Deadline adds that Topher Grace has also joined the mix.
Grace will play Evans’ best friend who eggs him on during his quest, but details regarding the other actors’ roles aren’t given.
Justin Reardon is directing from a Black List script by Chris Shafer and Paul Vicknair. Production begins later this month.
