He may have lost the role of Johnny Storm (As we reported a few weeks back, The Fantastic Four is about to undergo the remake treatment and thus, thereâ€™ll be an all-new cast) but Chris Evans may have snagged himself another superhero engagement â€“ and one that might actually be worth checking out (yes, that was a dig at Foxâ€™s lame Fantastic Four film series).
According to Comics2film, Evans is in negotiations to join Jeffrey Dean Morgan in â€œThe Losersâ€, which follows a special forces team betrayed by their handler and left for dead. The Losers regroup in the interest of revenge and the opportunity to remove their names from a secret CIA death list and to conduct covert operations against the CIA.
Evans would play Jensen, the fast-talking tech whiz of the team.
Sylvain White is directing the adaptation of the Vertigo book.
