The Marvel stars have reportedly signed up to reunite in Apple’s upcoming adventure movie, Ghosted, and we are already obsessed with this project.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the flick is being described as a ‘high-concept romantic action-adventure in the vein of Romancing the Stone’, which starred Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner.
Deadpool and Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick penned the script, while Dexter Fletcher, the helmer behind Rocketman, is set to direct.
Captain American star Evans has already worked with Apple before on the legal drama, Defending Jacob.
Elsewhere, he recently wrapped action thriller, The Gray Man, with Ryan Gosling which saw him reunite with Avengers filmmakers Joe and Anthony Russo.

Johansson and Evans are no strangers to teaming up on films as they previously worked together in 2004’s The Perfect Score and 2007’s The Nanny Diaries before joining the MCU.
Meanwhile, Johansson recently filed a suit alleging Disney was in breach of her contract by allowing for a simultaneous theatrical and streaming release of Black Widow, which she claims damaged her earning potential as a large part of her salary is based on the film’s box office performance, which dropped 67% after the film’s opening weekend.

Following her lawsuit, Disney issued a statement, saying there was ‘no merit whatsoever’ to it and that the company had ‘fully complied’ with her contract.
The company also labeled the action ‘sad and distressing in its callous disregard for the horrific and prolonged global effects of the Covid-19 pandemic’, which prompted Johansson’s agent Bryan Lourd to hit back at Disney’s response to the actress’s lawsuit, branding it a ‘direct attack’ on her character.
Johansson first appeared as Romanoff in 2010’s Iron Man 2 and went on to star in The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, Captain Marvel, and Avengers: Endgame.
Her character was killed in Endgame, with Black Widow – on which she was also an executive producer – acting as a prequel.
