Chris Evans is Ready for a BreakMarch 3, 2014
The Captain America star is ready for “a little break”.
Chris Evans has been busy since 2011, having since had ten films released including Captain America, a role that he refused multiple times before finally accepting, saying that he would have “kicked himself” for missing out on the opportunity.
But, whether you love Evans as the All-American boy Steve Rogers or not, we may not be seeing much of him once his Marvel contract is complete. No, he isn’t retiring, simply shifting focus for a little while as many actors and actresses tend to do.
“I think when I’m done with this Marvel contract, I’ll take a little break from acting,” he told British magazine Glamour.
“With acting, you’re one piece in a very big puzzle. It’s like you helped buy a gift but you don’t know what the gift is, so you come back and see the movie. Sometimes it’s nice, sometimes it’s tragic. This process [directing], you’re involved in every single decision.”
Evans has recently dipped his feet into the directing role; his directorial debut is called 1:30 Train and it’s set to come out this year. It stars himself and Alice Eve and it is about a woman who rushes to make the 1:30 train from New York City to Boston. Unfortunately along the way she is robbed and finds herself lost in the dark underbelly of New York at night with nothing and no one. The script was written by Robert Bass, who won an Oscar for his work on 1988’s Rain Man.
Evans’ film contract with Marvel is said to be six films, so we can expect to see one more Captain America, and a final Avengers film following Age of Ultron, which is set for a 2015 release.
